Il y a un monstre dans le lac, et il s'appelle Jean-Claude.
Mon ami le monstre sort du lac quand l'eau est trop chaude.
Le monstre vient au Lac du Bois pour jouer de la guitare.
Il aime bien manger les villageois et les monos bizarres. RAAAARAH!

Thanks for the kind words everyone  Smiley If you want to try making the elephant, the pattern was similar in technique to the amineko, try not to be discouraged by the fact that the it's in Japanese! If you look at the graphs when you scroll right down below the pictures you will see that there are three columns, the first tells you the row you're working on, the second, how many stitches you need to have in that row and the third tells you how often to increase or decrease. The first two are pretty straightforward but you might want to put it through babelfish if you think you don't understand how often you need to increase or decrease your stitches.

Good luck, I hope this helps a bit (and I'm sorry if it doesn't!)

that helps a lot, thanks Smiley

I tried putting it through babelfish but there was an error Sad  Is there any way you could tell me which body part each graph makes?  That is, if you aren't too busy Tongue

Hi, thanks again for the comments and of course I'm happy to help any time SuperSow! Here's the order of the graphs:
1. head
2. body
3. hand/arm
4. foot/leg
5. ear (crocheted flat, not in the round)
6. nose

If you have any more questions, please don't hesitate to ask Smiley
P.S. If you have mozilla firefox like me, then you might find it worthwhile to download moji, it can tell you the different readings and translations for a kanji character.
