Little Cotton Rabbits Boy Elephant

If you are a frequent visitor here, you'll absolutely know how much I love Julie Williams' Little Cotton Rabbits knitting patterns.  I've knitted a few OK...a lot of them before.  This may or may not be the 22nd animal I've knitted.  But who's counting...don't judge me.  As cute as these are, there must be others who have the same obsession.

Here he is in his "birthday suit".

 I love the little tail; and the sweater; and his little short trousers; oh, and did I mention how much I love his curly little trunk.  Yes, I love everything about him!

I immediately bought her newest patterns and made up the boy.  He's so darn cute!!!  I'm working on the girl elephant too.  Check out Julie's patterns.  They are intensive, easy to follow, and well written.

  2. Sooooo, when is the next class? Could you do a fox and elephant class so we could learn how to knit both? I'm ready for either or both! Jill

  3. Jill, Wool Cabin might be offering a class on the elephant soon. Check in with them for details. It's still in the planning.

  4. Bonnie, he is so cute. On FB I didn't get to see his backside :). I always did love the Babar books, and he sort of reminds me of Babar. The little sweater just is so darling. Joni

  5. Hmmm....methinks maybe my previous comment was lost? (If so, delete this one LOL.) Your little elephant is adorable! And that tail would make anyone swoon!!! You're a knitting machine -- keep up the good work!

  6. How handsome! I think I ought to take a class with you. Made a bear that was huge but was going to be felted. I did not look right after felted so it is in the trash in my quilt room. Don't think I will ever knit an animal and then felt it... :-)
