This is an elephant I knit for my partner in the recent yarnies scavenger hunt swap. I forgot to take pictures before I sent him so these are thanks to winter83.

He made my parcel a couple of days late - as I knitted one, nd then for personal reasons and because hed come out a bit wrong decided I really needed to keep him  so I knit up another one!

I'm not very happy with his eyes - for some reason I always struggle to get eyes even on knitted toys  but other than that am proud of him!






any hints on how to get eyes level would be appreciated!

Thanks for the lovely messages Smiley

The pattern came out of a UK magazine special full of knitted toys - are we allowed to post them on here or does that infringe copyright?

I wish I knew the answer to that.
I think with recipes, it's as long as you credit the source that it came from?
but I dunno how it works with patterns. Sad
