my daughter's school mascot is an elephant (Tufts Jumbos!) -- and i've been wanting to attempt a knitted toy.... so it turned out OK. the good thing is i put some rice in the body so he sits up nicely, the bad thing is i didn't follow the pattern for the arms and legs.. it was too hard for me and i didn't feel like doing the color/yarn changes. the pattern was: http://www.etsy.com/listing/60839293/pears-the-elephant-pdf-knit-pattern  i just knit tubes for the arms and legs, and i had to add a little brain surgery patch at the back of the head to make it meet. but she's in the mail to my daughter... Grin  (the top photo i used a flash, so that's the truer color)

What a lovely elephant: he looks like he's offering a hug.
