Danger Crafts Esther the Eccentric Elephant PDF
Meet Esther the Eccentric Elephant! This knitting pattern from Danger Crafts will show you how to knit Esther, the cutie pie elephant. Esther is a fast, super satisfying project that knits up easily on many yarn/needle combinations. Since it doesn't take much yarn to knit an Esther, this is a great stash busting project for all those times you've bought just 1 or 2 balls because something was pretty. Just like elephants themselves, this pattern is very fun and once you knit one Esther, you will find you want to knit an entire elephant family! This elephant is knit in the round, with the legs, body, and trunk being knit in one piece and the arms and tail sewn on during finishing.
