Basic supplies needed to crochet an elephant

  • Yarn:  The weights vary from DK to chunky weight yarn in colors of your choice.
  • Crochet hook – When it comes to the hook size, the recommendation for the best crochet elephant is to use the smallest hook size you are most comfortable working with! This helps to secure the stuffing and makes it perfect for the little ones. (we do not want any stuffing picking out of the loose stitches)
  • Tapestry needle – For sewing in the parts and ends.
  • Stitch marker – To secure your pieces before sewing/joining.
  • Polyfill stuffing – To give your crochet Elephants shape!
  • Two safety eyes or you can crochet eyes for children under 3 years. The size of the safety eyes would range from 8 mm to 20 mm
  • Embroidery thread in black for the eyebrows

Pin these crochet elephants for later

Caution when using safety eyes Always think about who would be the owner of your crochet elephants. I they are younger than 3 years, kindly substitute with embroidery eyes.
