This is easily the most popular of my designs for children; I designed it at the request of my (then) two-year-old grandson who boldly stated that he wanted to wear elephants. For knitters, this is a joyful little stranded design to work, with its classic steeks, shaping, and colour changes. There are two colour versions, both vibrant with jewel tones.



Some of the designs and extra amendments available exclusively from Virtual Yarns for the book The Children's Collection.
