Elephant Magnets

A girlfriend came to me with a picture. This is my interpretation of it. :o)

Side View:

Worsted Weight yarn
Size G hook

(These are very forgiving...use whatever yarn/hook combo you want to
get the density you wish!)

Ch 4 sl st to form ring
R1: Ch3, Dc 15 into center hole, sl stitch to top of ch3 (16Dc)

R2: Ch2, Dc in same stitch, 2 Treble in next 2st, 2Dc in next stitch.
slip stitch down side of ear and in next next 4 sts. Chain 3 and Dc
in same stitch, 2Treble in next 2 sts, 2Dc in next stitch. Slip stich on
back of elephant to the center hole.

Chain 10. Cut yarn and weave in end for a soft, floppy trunk. Pull trunk
through center hole to the front.

For firmer Trunk- Chain 11. sc in 2nd stitch from the hook and each
stitch down. (10sc) Cut, weave in yarn end and pull through front.

For curly Trunk- Chain 11. sc in 2nd stitch from hook, *ch1, sc in
next stitch* Repeat till you have sc in each chain stitch. Cut, weave
in end, and pull through center hole.


Sew button eyes or hot glue google eyes. Hot glue a magnet to the back or use as an applique.

Have fun and take care! Love, Ang
