Ela! ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿงก๐Ÿ˜









๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜

Hello!

I'm very happy to finally introduce you today to 

 'Ela' 

....who is very fond of a cucumber sandwich and a pot
of darjeeling tea in the afternoon at the Tearoom....


the new knitting pattern is now live on 
Ravelry!

Method 1 worked 'in the round' and seamless here
Method 2 worked 'back and forth' then seamed here


๐Ÿ’— ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿงก

I actually started designing this pattern some time ago 
and originally it was worked 'in the round' (perfect for an elephant)
...but when I had almost finished... 
I decided to also create it 'back and forth' on 2 single pointed needles 
so that everyone could make their elephants at the same time 
whichever knitting method is preferred

It was a bit of a challenge
 to be working on both methods at the same time 
(I usually publish one version then work on the alternative method afterwards)
but I'm very happy now both are complete that the pattern will be 
available for everyone

๐Ÿงก ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ’—

All details about each version are included in the individual listings
but if you prefer to knit 'in the round' on dpns you will need 'Method 1'

...and if you like to work on 2 single pointed needles
 'back and forth' you will prefer 'Method 2'

๐Ÿ’— ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿงก

There are lots of step by step instructions in the pattern 
and I took all the photographs along the way as I worked
(quite a lot!)
Also, there are useful links to techniques and materials 
and yarn suggestions of varying prices


I didn't realise it would be so much fun to knit elephants...
...I think it's the trunk that really does it for me...

(did I mention too that Ela never forgets a face?)
