I love to crochet but tiny stuff is just not my thing…first of all, I can’t see it without magnifying glasses and second of all, my hands just hate it…BUT…every once in a while, I am just compelled to give it one more go.
In the Little Good Things Swap, my partner @crafty-becky had elephants as one of her favorite things. I searched the internet and found the cutest tiny elephant and quickly printed out the pattern.
I am trying to work off my stash so all I had was white crochet thread…fine, I would use markers or paint to color it grey later…
I was doing great and ready to make the legs and ears when I realized…the pattern had a huge boo-boo…the pattern maker forgot the trunk!!!
What to do, what to do…I probably could have winged a trunk but I also noticed the shape was a bit off…not quite round like an elephant…did I goof? I was going to just stop when I remembered Becky also liked snowmen! It kinda looked like a snowman…all I needed was a few embroidery stitches, a tiny scarf and a tiny hat…I could do that!!!
So here we have “the elephant that wanted to be a snowman”…
And once again…I swear I will never crochet anything tiny again (until the next time…)
