This is my latest crocheting project - an elephant! I had seen a similar pattern being made up on Hochanda a few months back and was intrigued by how the legs were made up then last week someone offered me a copy of their pattern and I thought I would have a go.
For this elephant I used Stylecraft DK yard in silver and a 2.25 crochet hook. I managed to follow the pattern without coming unstuck. It took about 10hrs to crochet and this is how it turned out. A quick internet search and I have found the same pattern on this website: http://www.allaboutami.com/elephantpattern/
