Ears (knitted) Make 2 -


These ears were designed by DeColuvj, thank you!


"Worked in stockinette stitch.
Co 8 (with norwegian cast on)
Work 2 rows.
Work 1 row, decreasing stitch count to 5. (I knitted, *k2tog* 3x, and knitted)
Work 1 row.
K5tog, ch 1. Break thread, leave tail to sew on.
Knit the other ear left-handed.
Use the tail from casting on to weave down one side and give the ear a slightly pinched look. Attach to body with tails.
These ears are squarer and smaller than the ears used here, but they're still pretty cute."


And these ears were designed by Mackenzie King, thanks so much!

"The ear pattern that I created is as follows:
Worked in stockinette stitch.
CO 2 sts on DPNS
kfb around(4 sts.)
kfb around(8 sts.)

BO, and sew the point onto the elephant's body."
