Ysolda Elijah PDF
Ysolda's Elijah is an adorable elephant toy knit without seams on double-pointed needles. Elijah was designed to be round and cuddly but still easy for
little hands to grasp. He knits up quickly and since the gauge isn’t too important
is a great way to use up small amounts of yarn. Elijah would make a wonderful
gift for any kid or adult.
Finished Measurements: Approximately 10” tall
Yarn Requirements: Approximately 218 yards of sport or DK weight yarn such as Valley Yarns Valley Superwash DK (100% Extra Fine Superwash Merino Wool; 50g/137yds) and small amounts of darker yarn for embroidering eyes.
Needles: US 3 (3.25mm) DPNs
Gauge: 26 sts and 36 rnds = 4” in stockinette stitch
NOTE: Because size is not crucial to this project, the gauge does not need to be matched exactly, and the overall size can be changed by changing the yarn weight and needle size. The most important thing is to work Elijah at a relatively tight gauge to create a firm fabric without holes that the stuffing can poke through. If you are using a different yarn weight, you should use needles to achieve a tighter than the recommended gauge.
