Knit this sweet vintage elephant, courtesy of the Australian Women’s Weekly, Saturday Nov 1st 1941.
Wearing a smart red waistcoat and sporting a red ribbon around his neck, this happy elephant would make a great present for the little ones. (Just make sure to embroider the eyes on instead of using buttons or beads).
Jumbo is knit with fingering weight wool on UK size 11/US 2/3mm needles and measures about 15 inches tall.
I have a soft spot for elephants, so expect to see more in the future!
