A cute and colourful amigurumi pattern for a super cute and cuddly crocheted elephant plush toy, handmade by myself in Ireland. Not just any elephant though, Louie the elephant. Louie’s favourite things are loves and lollipops. He’d make a great little buddy for someone who’s also a fan of loves and lollipops (and super cute elephants)

Gauge is not essential for this project,however it is important to check your hook and yarn choices result in tight even stitches to make sure the stuffing doesn’t show.
Any aran weight yarn will do to make this pattern, I prefer the chose yarn for it’s broad colour options and it’s softness. You could even use a different weight yarn to make a bigger or small Louie!
You’ll also need: Black Felt Black Sewing Thread Polyester Stuffing Small bit of white embroidery thread or crochet thread for eyes You will also need a printer to print the template for felt eyes
