Elephants are the cutest animals ever! Their curved trunks remind me of hooks and inspire me to crochet. The combination of texture, lace and chunkiness makes this rug a conversation piece, which will bring your home to life. Let your creativity shine and make the ears one of a kind by changing colors frequently in any round you like. This is a great project for using up your yarn leftovers. The pattern is for a solid color elephant rug, written row-by-row using US crochet terms. It also includes crochet diagrams, step-by-step photos, and a conversion chart to UK terms. I hope you will enjoy making your Josefina and Jeffery from this pattern as much as I enjoyed designing it.
