This month's project is Elijah, by Ysolda.
Carly knit this sweet softie and we think you'll love it as much as she does!
1 skein of Misti Alpaca Pima Silk Hand Dyed. (Sport/DK weight, 327 yards)
40 grams of fluff for stuffing
A small amount of black yarn for embroidered eyes
A hard copy of the pattern and a ravelry download.
The first 75 kits sold will include a pinback Darn Knit Anywhere button. Cause you can take this little elephant ANYWHERE!
Our sample is Neptune but we picked colors we think would make adorable Elijahs!
The elephant is knit from the top down without seaming. We suggest a US2 or 3 needle. Either double points, 32" or 40" for magic loop technique. You'll be working lots of small diameter limbs:)
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.
You will have extra yarn when you are done with Elijah. Depending on your gauge, you just might get a 2nd Elijah out of the rest, or maybe a baby hat to go along with it! Sounds like a great baby gift to us!
Tip: When picking up and knitting stitches use a small crochet hook or the Awesome Tool get one here.
