Crochet simple Amigurumi elephants
Especially as a beginner the partly quite complex Amigurumis can be a challenging project. Therefore, you will find valuable support in our instructions, which will help you with every step. On the one hand, thanks to the extensive descriptions you can always see exactly which step you have to take next with your crocheted elephant. On the other hand, the pictures on which the little Amigurumi takes on more and more form will also help you. Nevertheless, remember that some important basic knowledge should not be missing in the ideal case. Important for the form are mostly (look into the instructions first) for example spiral rounds - each round is crocheted continuously until the instructions tell you otherwise. The best thing to do in this case is to add a marking thread, so that you can always see when a round begins or ends.
Which techniques do you have to master for an Amigurumi elephant?
In the end it depends on the individual instruction, because it gives the exact crochet pattern and shows you accordingly which crochet techniques are necessary. But often you can assume that you need several or even all of the following techniques:
Thread Ring / Magic Ring
Increase / double
Take off / crochet together
Sewing / Sewing on
Which materials does your crocheted Amigurumi Elephant need?
Obviously, first of all you need the right yarn for your Elefanten-Amigurumi. The classic way is to use yarn colours like dark grey for the body and white for the tusks - if you want to add some variation, you can add more shades of grey and use them in different places (for example on the ears or feet). On the other hand, there is nothing wrong with crocheting your Amigurumi elephant in bright and unusual colours.
Additionally you will need some crochet hooks and wool needles. For the later filling, also have some cotton wool and some helpful tools like scissors or a knife ready. You can vary your eyes: either crochet them normally or use safety eyes. An alternative would be eyes for sticking on, with which you create another eye-catcher.
Crochet elephant trunks and tusks - that's the way to do it!
With an elephant Amigurumi you have chosen a rather unusual animal with many special features. Besides the trunk you have to crochet tusks and big ears. Usually head and body are crocheted directly in one piece, so the actual implementation is not that complicated. The remaining parts are crocheted separately and attached to the elephant Amigurumi at the very end. But especially when crocheting the trunk, remember to leave enough space in the face from the beginning.
What is an Amigurumi elephant suitable for?
Whether as a key ring, cuddly toy, toy or cute decoration - a crochet elephant as a popular Amigurumi is always a good gift, but of course you can crochet it for yourself. Basically the elephant is also a great companion for your kids, after all it stands for a very friendly and social animal with family spirit. Apart from that, he is also simply an eye-catcher thanks to his trunk and large ears. Moreover, he is suitable for beginners as well as advanced riders. You should be able to sew the pieces together later on, because most Amigurumi elephants consist of many single pieces, which are first crocheted and later sewn together. With a little practice, however, this is no problem at all. And if it does: Our crocheting instructions will help you every step of the way and make sure that your project is successful.
