My aunt-in-law gave me this wonderful rainbow-colored yarn for Christmas as well as a bunch of different-sized crochet hooks (!!). When I saw the yarn I thought it would be wonderful for little kids toys, so I spent a while trying to figure out what to make. I eventually settled for a toy elephant.
I’d never made a stuffed animal before, so there was a lot that was new to me. I’m quite pleased with how it turned out, and I think the different colors look cool together. And maybe I’ll make another stuffed animal someday–I’ve probably got enough stuffing for ten more.
