|these little guys are about the size of a half dollar coin|
Here's my interpretation of the pattern if you'd like to give it a try
Embroidery Floss (6 strands) or Crochet Thread ( 2 colors for the elephant and 1 for the flower)
Size 5 or 6 needle
Row 1 - If you know how to start with a 'wa' then go ahead and ch 7 single crochet (sc).
Tip A : An alternative to a 'wa' is Chain 2, then 7 sc in 2nd chain from hook.
Tip B : To keep track of the rounds, I use a 3-4 inch thread to mark the spot of between where one round ends and the next round begins
Row 2 - Chain 1, sc in first chain, then 2 sc in the next chain (increase of 1 sc). Repeat - sc, 2 sc (10 sc total)
Row 3 - Chain 1, sc in next 2 chains, then 2 sc in next chain (increase). Repeat - sc, sc, 2 sc (14 sc)
Row 4 - Chain 1, sc in next 4 chains, then 2 sc in next chain. Repeat sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc (16 sc)
Row 5 - Chain 1, sc in next 5 chains, then 2 sc in next chain. Repeat sc, sc, sc, sc, sc, 2 sc (19 sc)
Row 6 to 8 - Chain 1, sc in each chain (19 sc)
Row 9 - Chain 1, sc in next 8 chains, decrease 1 sc over next 2 sc, sc in next 7 chains, decrease 1 sc over next 2 sc (17 sc). END
Legs - Crochet 2 legs
Row 1 - Begin with a 'wa' then 6 sc OR chain 2 and 6 sc in 2nd chain from hook
Row 2 to 3 - sc in each chain. END
Row 1 - Chain 5
Row 2 to 3 - sc in each chain. Fold in half and sew close with sewing thread
Ear (USE A DIFFERENT COLOR)
Row 1 - chain 4, double crochet 4 times in 4th chain from hook. END
Row 1 - Chain 4, join into a circle
Row 2 - 6 sc in the circle, join
Row 7 - Chain 3, slip stitch in next chain to create loops. Repeat - chain 3, slip stitch in next chain.
Assemble all the pieces. I find using sewing thread is much easier than working with the embroidery floss/crochet thread. Then 2 aspirin if you have a headache.
