Ellie the Elephant Crochet Amigurumi Pattern
Ellie is a cute little elephant with a very perky trunk. She wants to play!
This is exclusively available as a PDF pattern, delivered instantly. No shipping costs and no waiting! (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)
She measures about 6 1/2 inches tall when completed with a worsted weight yarn.
Want a bigger or smaller elephant? Use thicker or thinner yarn!
Ellie is an intermediate level pattern, best tackled if you've already made one or two amigurumi. Her construction is mostly very basic, but there's a little fancier shaping to get the trunk to curve. It's pretty easy - and there's a video showing how - but it's likely to be a new skill for most stitchers.
These are the skills you'll need. . .
- single crochet
- attaching limbs and other parts
- crocheting one stitch below
Don't worry - the PDF pattern has links to videos teaching you all the skills you'll need! And it contains progress photos of all the important steps so you won’t get lost. :-)
You can find links to sources for many of my favorite tools and supplies here.
You'll need. . .
- crochet hook (size determined by yarn)
- one color of worsted weight yarn - less than a skein. The sample uses grey.
- one pair of 12 mm black craft eyes
- polyester stuffing
- tapestry needle
- locking stitch markers (to count stitches and rounds)

Talk to Me
If you're hiring out any part of the process, please get in touch and we'll work out a fair licensing agreement.
For example, if you want to hire someone to help you crochet, or to do all the stuffing for you, those two scenarios would require a licensing agreement. Get in touch! I'm easy to talk to. :-) email@example.com
