Nellie & Neville


Among the projects I completed last month were two more little elephants.


Not sure why, but whenever I knit an elephant I always feel the need to make a matching one of the opposite sex!

Nellie Elephant

Nellie is 11″ tall and is knitted in a grey DK yarn on 4mm needles. Thought I would dress her for a day at the seaside, so selected some red and a couple of shades of blue yarn from my stash to achieve a nautical look.

Dress has a little sailor collar.

A red bow completes the outfit.


Neville is just a little taller  measuring 12″ I used the same colours to make his outfit, a blue and white stripey sweater and a pair of baggy red overalls.


Will have to knit them an ice-cream to complete their day at the seaside!
