Little Bigfoot Elephant

By Sharon Ojala at Amigurumi To Go | May 11, 2014

Work in continuous rounds, do not join. I used Red Heart Super Saver and also Red Heart Comfort yarn with a 4.50 mm hook. If you crochet more on the loose side then use a smaller hook so you don’t get gaps and stuffing showing through the stitches.

How to read the rows: Each row has a sequence as given below. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. The number inside the parentheses ( ~ ) is the number of stitches you should have at the end of that particular row.

It’s a good idea to add in a marker at the end of row 2 and move that marker at the end of every row. I just use a short length of yarn and pull it through the last stitch I put in at the end of every row.

Supplies:
any color of Red Heart Super Saver or Red Heart Comfort 100% acrylic yarn
4.5mm hook *use a smaller hook if you  see gaps in your stitches
blunt end yarn needle for sewing
sharp end needle if adding French Knot eyes
scissors
100% polyester stuffing
felt, paint, buttons, or yarn for eyes (7.5mm are in one of the elephants pictured)
felt for tongue
fabric fusion (fabric glue) for gluing on the felt
