Description

A whole herd of cute baby elephants stroll across this lovely baby blanket, which makes a beautiful gift for a baby shower or new baby.

Created using just knit and purl stitches this impressive looking design is deceptively easy to knit and is ideal for beginners.

This blanket can be knitted in any shade but looks particularly good in soft grey (images use PaintBox Yarns Aran in Stormy Grey). The recommended worsted / aran weight yarn also makes this a relatively quick knit.

The elephant baby blanket can be knitted in any size from pram to king-size bed. The illustrated instructions include notes on how to easily add as many elephants as you like to the width or length.
