THE ENTIRE PATTERN (written and charted) IS BELOW.
- CO: cast on
- RS: right side
- WS: wrong side
- st: stitch
- k: knit
- p: purl
– CO 43 sts with US 7 (4.5 mm) needles.
|I always cast on and bind off stitches with larger needles than I use for the main work. This prevent my cast on and bind off rows from being too tight.|
– With US 6 (4 mm) needles, knit 4 rows.
|Slip first stitch on every row as if you were to knit it, but without knitting it (except on the first row). It will form a neat and sturdy border.|
– Continue working as follows:
4 garter sts, ELEPHANT pattern over 35 sts, 4 garter sts (55 rows).
– Knit 4 rows.
– Bind off with US 7 (4.5 mm) needle. Cut yarn and weave in ends.
k all sts, all rows.

Thank you. Love elephants, too!
Just bought! Can you recommend some yarn, ideally washable and super soft?
I love this cotton, is super soft, washable, but the color fades. I have only found it at Hobby Lobby. Peaches and Cream is what I make dishcloths with but it is not soft.
