So I love elephants.. and I want a cuddley one. Any suggestions on where I could find a (preferabley free?) pattern for this? Also a piggy pattern would be awesome! Infact.. ANY cuddley animal patterns I would LOVE! Thank you SO much in advance.

Sorry guys, I'm new to knitting and have no idea where to look for patterns -_-. I suck. I'm aware.

Don't put yourself down! I think you deserve a pat on the back for starting this wonderful craft! And you don't have to worry about trying to find fancy yarns, just use whatever you can find and I bet it will turn out nicely!

One of my favorite places to find patterns is this:
http://www.knittingpatterncentral.com/index.php

Other places you can find patterns are the yarn's brand sites, such as Patons, Coats and Clarks, etc. I don't have all the links for those right now, but start exploring. Try googling Knitting patterns!

I didn't find an elephant pattern right off for knitting (though I have a book that has one for crocheting) but search a little, you'll find it! Have fun!

There is a knitted elephant toy pattern in "Last Minute Knitted Gifts".  You could check to see if your local library carries it.
