Popular Elephant Rug - Crochet DIY
I saw this elephant rug while I was searching around Facebook. I immediately went and bought the pattern not knowing that it takes 9-12 skeins of yarn and working three strands of yarn at the same time. It used a bigger crochet hook than I'm used to but I got the hang of it rather quickly and took off. It was a fun project and something different from the regular blankets I normally crochet.
Measuring eyes to make sure they are straight and just in the right place. This was tough and nerve wracking especially when you are a perfectionist LOL. i measured once and measured again. I kept measuring until my back was hurting. But I finally got them in the right place and sewed them in with the long tail of yarn that I saved on the eyes. the little white twinkle adds the final touch. I especially love the oversized pink bow. Such a cute Elephant Rug!
Here is the view of the ear - the puff stitches add dimension and make the elephant rug look so pretty! I upped the contrast a little so that you could see the details of the stitches. It mainly uses a double crochet so there are really no fancy stitches. It just looks fancy :)
Finished finally :) it took 9 skeins of yarn to make the Elephant Rug. It's so popular right now. I sold this one within a few minutes of posting it on my Facebook page. I love the way it came out. I have since made a few of them in a lighter grey color and it's fabulous. If you like to crochet, this is a perfect project for you.
