Adorable, right? What little tyke wouldn't want to cuddle with this 100% cotton pink elephant lovey blanket! The pattern can easily be adapted to blue, or any color of your choosing!
Please note that you can e-mail me if you have any questions at all about the pattern! The links to video tutorials for various stitches can be very helpful if needed!
*Best price I can find for the Sugar'n Cream yarn is $1.99 for a 2.5 oz skein at Michaels Craft Stores. Even better if you print out and use their coupons each week - I print two coupons and bring my husband (They almost always have a 40% or 50% off one regular priced item!).
Make the Head and Nose:
(I strongly suggest reading all the directions first and then watching the video tutorial if this is your first time making a ball shape).
YOU WILL BE MAKING THE NOSE FIRST:
Make the Ears:
The ears are worked from the outside of the ear toward the head in sort of a double layer that will be sewn together at the end....look at the picture to get a better idea if you do not understand, but if you still need help check out the Crochet Elephant Ear Tutorial YOU TUBE video I made...it's not the best, as I made it quickly, but I hope it helps!
This is my first tutorial video and I know it's not great, but I tried!
Sew on Eyes:
Make the Arms (optional):
Make the Blanket:
The final blanket is approximately 18" x 18".
**PATTERN UPDATED AS OF 3/19/18**
This is a basic granny square blanket with 6 corners instead of 4 and 13 rows in pink, then the edging. Watch this video tutorial (below) to make the basic 6 sided hexagon. You will do 12 rows in pink. The rest of the pattern continues below.

Hi there! I'm Kathie, the author behind Creating A Simpler Life blog. I'm excited to share our longterm projects (and planning) toward building our future retirement homestead in the Adirondack Mountains of New York. In the meantime I will be sharing all the other little things we do that are part of creating our simpler life!
