This is my elephant. I made him from "Mr. Funky's Super Crochet Wondeful" book and boy is he loveable! He's for a friend so I'm not sure what his name will be but I like the name Jack Burton for him.

For the main color, I used Debbie Bliss merino aran yarn, 100% wool, making him cozy. The other stuff I had already lying around so not sure of the type.

I also made the hat off the top of my head. This is the pattern!

1-Chain 4, slip stitch in first to make ring
2-6 sc in ring, place stitch marker in last one
3 to 5- 1 sc in each stitch
6-Sc twice in each stitch (12 sc)
7-Sc, increase: repeat around (18)
8-Sc in next two stitches, increase: repeat around (24)
9-Slip stitch in next stitch, fasten off leaving long tail for sewing.

Captain Hook would have been a great crocheter, no?
