Knitting legs for an elephant.

All 4 legs for the elephant are knitted according to the same pattern. We start knitting with light pink yarn.

Row 1: Cast on 2 ch (in air loops) and knit 7 sc (single crochet) in the second loop from the hook. An alternative method to start knitting is to knit 7 sc into an amigurumi slip ring (7).

2 row: (1 inc) – repeat 7 times (14).

3 row: (1 inc, 1 sc) – repeat 7 times (21).

Next, we knit the detail with yarn of the main (gray) color.

Rows 10-12: Work 1 sc in each st of previous row (54).

13 row: in this row we will form a hole for the future elephant’s trunk. We knit 21 sc in a circle, then we dial 6 ch and, stepping back 12 loops of the previous row, we fix with 1 sc and then knit again in a circle 20 sc (48)

14 row: 15 sc, (1 inc, 1 sc) – repeat 3 times, over a chain of ch in knit 6 sc, (1 sc, 1 inc) – repeat 3 times, 15 sc (54).

We stuff the head tightly through the hole for the trunk.

Trunk knitting.

We turn to knitting a trunk for an elephant. We fix the working thread in the place indicated in the photo.

1 row: knit in a circle clockwise. 6 sc on the underside, 1 sc at the junction of the chain and the head, 12 sc along the upper side of the hole, 1 sc at the junction of the chain of ch and the head (20).

Rows 2-5: Work 1 sc in each st of previous row (20).

Pay attention to where the beginning of the row is located. If you have it elsewhere, single crochet to even out the knit.

6th row: 10 sc, 1 dec, 3 sc, 1 dec, 3 sc (18).

The photo shows the location of the reductions.

7 row: 8 sc, (1 sc, 1 dec) – repeat 3 times, 1 sc (15).

8 row: knit 1 sc in each loop of the previous row (15).

9 row: 1 sc, 3 dec, 8 sc (12).

The wide part of the trunk can be stuffed with stuffing for soft toys. It’s better not to stuff too tightly. But the lower part of the trunk, which we will now begin to knit, does not need to be stuffed at all.

Rows 10-13: Work 1 sc in each st of previous row (12).

14 row: we knit decreases until the hole is completely closed.

We fill the end of the trunk inside. I used a gel pen refill for this purpose.

If you, like me, knit tightly, then the trunk may turn out sticking out. Look at the photo:

This can be easily fixed! Take a needle and thread to match the main yarn and with a few stitches draw the trunk to the head of the elephant.

Ear knitting.

The ears of the elephant will be knitted in turning rows. It will be necessary to knit 4 details: 2 main colors, 2 – pale pink (this is the inside of the elephant’s ears). It is more convenient to first knit 2 pink parts, then knit the gray one without cutting the working thread, connect the inner and outer parts of the ear with single crochets.

Row 1: Cast on 2 ch and work 3 sc in the second st from hook, 1 ch, turn work (3).

2 row: 1 inc, 2 sc, 1 ch, unfold knitting (4).

3 row: 3 sc, 1 inc, 1 ch, unfold knitting (5)

4 row: 1 inc, 4 sc, 1 ch, unfold knitting (6).

5 row: 5 sc, 1 inc, 1 ch, unfold knitting (7)

6 row: 1 inc, 6 sc, 1 ch, unfold knitting (8).

7 row: 7 sc, 1 inc, 1 ch, unfold knitting (9)

8-9 rows: 9 sc, 1 ch, unfold knitting (9).

10 row: skip 1 loop, 8 sc, 1 ch, unfold knitting (8).

11 row: knit 1 sc in each loop of the previous row, 1 ch, unfold knitting (8).

12 row: skip 1 loop, 7 sc, 1 ch, unfold knitting (7).

13 row: knit 1 sc in each loop of the previous row, 1 ch, turn knitting (7).

14 row: skip 1 loop, 6 sc (6).

We connect the pink and gray parts of the ears. To do this, we put the pink part on the gray one and knit single crochets along the contour. Please note that the ears must be symmetrical!
