Hey folks, I’ve got another brand new FREE crochet pattern to share with you today that I’ve designed in collaboration with Woolbox. Fresh from a stomp on the African savanna, it’s a cute and cuddly crochet pink elephant!
If you’ve not heard about Woolbox before they are a new online yarn company with a wealth of knitting and crochet knowledge. With the help of different designers they are beginning to develop some FREE patterns of their own using their own brand of yarn – and I’m delighted to be helping them out with that.
You may remember, in September, I shared the free Blue Rhino amigurumi and now we’ve got a new ‘Jungle Friend’ crochet pattern to make. And there’s one more design yet to come, can you guess what animal it might be?
For my Pink Elephant I used Woolbox Imagine Classic DK (Double Knit / Light Worsted). If you aren’t familiar with this yarn it’s a smoothly spun 100% anti–pilling acrylic that comes in an array of beautiful shades. Anti-pilling technology just means that any project you make with this yarn should not ‘pill’ (go bobbly) over time.
Woolbox Imagine Classic DK is available in 20 different colours, and I just used three different colours for my Elephant; Soft Heather (a pretty purplish shade), Raspberry Jam (a lovely bright pink), and Pure White with a 3.5mm (US size E/4) hook.
The pattern is available for FREE from the Woolbox as just the digital download for the pattern or as a yarn kit – I’ve added the links below:
The pattern is written in UK terms, but shipping is available to anywhere. If you are not sure about UK terms then you might find my blog post British vs. American Crochet Terms: What’s the Difference? helpful.
If you make up the Woolbox Pink Elephant I hope you will share your finished project photos with me on social media (facebook, twitter or instagram), or as a project on Ravelry – I love to see what you make! And finally you may wish to sign up to blog (below) and / or my mailing list to get a reminder when new blog posts, discounts or new pattern releases are available.
Until next time folks! Happy hooking and keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
