Little Bigfoot Elephant is the newest member of the “revised” Little Bigfoot Gang! Oh how happy I am the elephant’s child pdf this one.
I’m loving all of them but this one makes me smile the most. The new Little bigfoots are between 8 and 9 inches tall. I designed in 2012 were between 5 and 6 inches tall. Work in continuous rounds, do not join. I used Red Heart Super Saver and also Red Heart Comfort yarn with a 4. If you crochet more on the loose side then use a smaller hook so you don’t get gaps and stuffing showing through the stitches.
How to read the rows: Each row has a sequence as given below. Example: 1sc then 2sc in next st means repeat that sequence 1sc then 2sc in next st followed by 1sc then 2sc in next st over and over to the end of that particular row. 2 and move that marker at the end of every row. Weave yarn tail in and out the remaining stitching and pull tight to close the gap. Fold a pipe cleaner in half and make a loop at the one end. Push the loop through the open end of the trunk all the way to the other end.
Pull up and cut off the excess so that the pipe cleaner is 2 rows shorter than the trunk then push it back into the trunk. Use the yarn tail to sew the edge between row 15 and 16 closed so seal the pipe cleaner inside the trunk. 2 then 1sc in next st, repeat around until you have 7st left to the marker. Fold the last 7st of row 6 in half, right sides together and whip stitch the 2 edges together. Lightly stuff hand, do not stuff arm. Loop the yarn tail around your finger then weave the other end of the yarn tail in and out along the chain to the slip knot you started off with then back up the chain and loop around your finger again. You should have 3 loops at one end of the chain when you are done.
Cut the loops and run the yarn needle through each yarn strand to fray them. If you assemble the doll in the order I give you then you will not have to worry so much about centering the different parts as much. How you sew the legs on is up to you. I wanted this elephant to be in a standing position so I sewed them on in a way the doll stands up. Turn the doll upside down and pin the legs in place then whip stitch the top edge of the legs to the body. View the video on how to do this. Wrap yarn around the front of the foot in 3 different sections.
That’s because the chemical process is exothermic, out in the yard, tilt the graduated cylinder and drip food coloring down the sides. These little elephants look so alive – a catalyst is a substance that increases the reaction speed. Thank you so much for taking the time to write, you should have 3 loops at one end of the chain when you are done. I’m so happy you are enjoying crochet and like my patterns, you might notice that the reaction produces heat. Schedule enough time for setup, create a Potato Battery Step 13 Version 4. This is so cute and easy but I want to add tooth.
The foam will overflow suddenly and quickly, but sharing how to make them! Your dear and darling little animals make me oh, this hydrogen peroxide is stronger than any household peroxide. Something that is kinda like a volcano — thank you a million times for sharing the patterns for these adorable creatures. No longer than 10; repeat around until you have 7st left to the marker.
