Knitting description

Knit legs:

Gather 21 loops with a blue thread and distribute 7 loops to each knitting needle. Next, we knit in a circle every 2 rows with a new color: blue, blue, red (other colors can be used). Next, knit in pink as follows:

1 row: izn. loops;

2 row: * 5 persons. p., 2 p. together persons. *, repeat on each spoke (18 loops);

3 row: persons. loops;

4 row: * 4 persons. p., 2 p. together of persons. *, repeat on each spoke (15 loops);

5 row: * 3 persons. p., 2 p. together of persons. *, repeat on each spoke (12 loops);

6 row: * 2 persons. n., 2 n. together persons. *, repeat on each spoke (9 loops).  

Then we cut the thread and pull it through the remaining loops. We bind and fasten tightly. Knit 4 parts.

Knit torso:

We start knitting with a red thread. We collect 9 loops and distribute them into 3 needles. Color strips alternate as follows: 2 rows of red, pink, orange, white, blue and blue thread. Next, knit as follows:

1 row: from each loop knit 2 sts, for this, first knit a loop behind the back wall, then the same loop behind the front wall (18 loops);

2 row: * 1 persons. p., 2 p. knit from one *, repeat on each needle;

3 row: * 2 persons. n., 2 n. knit from one *, repeat on each spoke;

4 row: * 3 persons. n., 2 n. knit from one *, repeat on each spoke;

5 row: * 4 persons. n., 2 n. knit from one *, repeat on each spoke;

6 row: * 5 persons. n., 2 n. knit from one *, repeat on each spoke (63 loops).

Next, we knit 14 rows. After this, we perform a decrease of the loops as follows:

21 row: * 5 persons. p., 2 p. together persons. *, repeat on each spoke;

22 row: * 4 persons. p., 2 p. together persons. *;

23 series: persons. loops;

24 row: * 3 persons. p., 2 p. together persons. *;

25 series: persons. loops;

26 row: * 2 persons. p., 2 p. together persons. *;

27 series: persons. loops;

28 row: * 1 persons. p., 2 p. together persons. *;

29 row: individuals. loops;

30 row: knit all the loops of 2 st together the faces. on each needle (9 loops).

After that, cut the thread and stretch it through the remaining loops. We stuff the torso with filler, strongly weave the thread and fasten the ends tightly. This will be the top of the body.

Knit head:

Pink thread type 9 loops, distribute them into 3 needles and knit as follows:

1 row: * 2 persons. n., 2 n. knit from one *, repeat on each spoke;

2nd row: * 3 persons. n., 2 n. knit from one *, repeat on each spoke;

3 row: * 4 persons. n., 2 n. knit from one;

4 row: izn. hinges; 5 and 6 rows - persons. loops.

After that, we change the thread to orange and continue knitting, changing the thread every 2 rows. We knit 6 rows, then proceed to the formation of the head.

13 row: * 2 persons. n., 2 n. knit from one * (8 loops on the spoke);

14-16 ranks: individuals. loops;

17 series: * 3 persons. p., 2 p. knit from one * (10 loops on the needle);

18 row: individuals. loops;

19 series: * 2 persons. p., one loop knit from broach *, repeat 4 times, 2 persons. (14 loops on the spoke);

20-22 ranks: individuals. loops.

Then all the loops are divided into 4 needles as follows: 1 spoke - 8 loops, 2 and 3 needles - 13 loops, 4 needles - 8 loops.

23 row: spoke 1: persons. loops, needles 2 and 3, 1 person., * 1 n. from broach, 2 persons. p. *, repeat 6 times on 19 p. on 2 and 3 needles, spoke 4: persons. loops.

The total number of loops on the needles should be equal to 54;

24 row: individuals. loops;

25 row: spoke 1: faces. loops, knitting needles 2 and 3: * 6 faces. p., 1 p. of broach *, repeat 3 times, spoke 4: persons. loops.

The total number of loops on the needles is 60. Next, we knit 13 rows straight. After that, distribute all loops of 15 loops per spoke and perform the following adjustments:

39 row: * 4 persons. p., 2 p. together persons. *, repeat to  theendoftheseries;40row-individuals.loops;

41 series: * 3 persons. p., 2 p. together of persons. *, repeat to the end of the row;

42 and 43 series: individuals. loops;

44 row: * 2 persons. p., 2 p. together persons. *;

45 row: individuals. loops;

46 row: * 1 persons. p., 2 p. together persons. *;

47 row: individuals. loops;

48 row: 2 persons. p. together.

There should be 10 loops. After this thread is cut, stretch it through the remaining loops. We stuff the head with filler, strongly tighten the thread and firmly fasten the ends of the thread.

Bind the ears:

We crochet a pink thread st. b / n:

1 row: 2 VP 6 tbsp. b / n in the second loop from the hook;

2 row: 2 tbsp. b / n in each loop = 12 loops;

3 row: * 1 tbsp. b / n, 2 loops in 1 column of the base *, repeat 6 times (18 loops);

4 row: * 2 tbsp. b / n, 2 loops in 1 base column *, repeat 6 times (24 loops);

5 row: * 3 tbsp. b / n, 2 loops in 1 column of the base *, repeat 6 times (30 loops);

6 row: * 4 tbsp.b / n, 2 loops in 1 base column *, repeat b times (36 loops).

Next, cut the thread. The resulting circle fold in half and thread the red knit art. b / n in a semicircle, picking up both parts at once. Knit 2 parts.

Knit the tail:

Knit with a red thread on 2 spokes. We collect 4 loops and knit 6 rows of stockings. After that, all loops are closed. Then with a pink thread, we make a brush and attach it to the tip of the tail.

Building an elephant

We stuff the legs with filler and sew them to the body, sew the ears to the head, then sew the head to the body. Glue the eyes to the head. If there are no ready-made eyes, then you can embroider them with a black thread. Sew a tail and your elephant is ready.

Tips for knitting and assembling

  1. the crochet hook should be 1.5-2 times thinner than yarn so that the knitting is tight and looks beautiful;
  2. for making toys, it is better to take bright cotton threads, mixed yarn or acrylic, for stuffing toys it is better to use polyester, holofiber, sintepuh, sintepon or foam rubber, in this case they can be washed even in a washing machine;
  3. if the toy is to stand or sit, then weighting is used when stuffing - in the fabric or caprone they sew up granules, beads or unwanted beads;
  4. stuffing toys need to be tightly and gradually, evenly distributing the filler
  5. when knitting a toy with a crochet, it is better to reduce the loops using the “invisible decrease” method, for this you need to hang the front walls of both loops on the hook, then knit the column through the half-loops. Using the invisible decrease method «» you can turn off the hinges nicely and without holes with a translucent padding.
