Realistic Elephant Crochet and Knitting Patterns
So you want your amigurumi to look “really real”? I here you. Check out these patterns and create realistic elephants!
These knitted elephants have exaggerated proportions to help them balance, but are fairly realistic – and I love how the artist has included a woolly mammoth variation! This is a paid pattern, but as well as the woolly mammoth, the patten includes three size variations.
Look at this lovely trunk! I love it’s gentle ‘s’ curve – just what you think of when you think of an elephant. The designer has not resorted to using wire or pipecleaners or so on to shape the trunk – it’s all done through clever use of crochet.

This sweetly abstract elephant pillow is reversible! Make two different sides to match your décor, or your mood (I bet you never thought you’d read ‘match your elephant pillow to your mood’ in your entire life! Isn’t the internet delightful?).
