This is an Instructable on how to make a cute little crocheted elephant. It's made of nine basic parts. It's really easy I made this pattern up a week after my mom taught me how to crochet. The parts include one trunk, one head, two ears, one body four knobby feet, and a tenth piece is an optional tail. I got my inspiration for this project from Heather the Hippo made with Lion Brand's Wool ease.
