Pink Heart Elephant Tutorial

(Please keep in mind I'm not the greatest pattern writer, so if there are any questions or issues just send me a shout and I will try to clarify) Heart Shape Chain 2, 6 sc in the 2nd chain from hook, join (some call this the magic loop method I think) Round 1: 2 c in ea st around, do not join - Place stitch marker to mark the first stitch of each round. (This gives the heart a more cleaner look) 12sc Round 2: 2 sc in next st, 1 sc in next, repeat around- 18 sc Round 3: Sc in ea st around -18sc Round 4: Sc in next 2 st, 2 sc in next, repeat around-24sc Round 5: Sc in ea st around-24sc Round 6: Sc in next 5 st, 2 sc in next, sc, 2 sc, sc in last 5 st- 28sc Round 7: Sc in next st, 2sc in next, sc, 2 sc, sc in next 11 st, 2c, sc, 2sc, sc in last 10 st.- 32st Round 8-11: Sc in ea st around- 32st Fasten Off Divide for top of heart: Flatten piece and count 8 stitches from right center corner point (Each point consists of 16 st, so if you are more comfortable with finding the center back and dividing that way by all means whatever works for you. Just note that each heart top is 16 st around) Sc in next 16 st, sl st at the top of 1st st of this round. Next Round: sc in first 2 st, dec, repeat around-join Next Round: sc in first st, dec, repeat around-join Fasten Off, leaving a tail of yarn to draw through all stitches and pull tight to close up opening. Weave in end to secure. After you have completed the first point, at this time I started to stuff my heart and placed the eyes. I placed 12mm safety eyes at 3rd row from point and about 3 stitches apart. I would suggest trying different places and seeing what works for you. Repeat the same for the other point, before stitching up point add a little more stuffing to fill that point. Ear's- Make 2 Chain 4, Row 1:sc,2sc,2c,sc, turn Row 2: Sc across, turn Row 3: Sc, hdc,2dc,2dc,hdc,sc-DO NOT TURN working across end of rows, sc in ea st, sl st in ea st across beginning chain 4, sc in ea st of end of rows. Fasten off

I attached each ear to the side of the heart at 2nd to the last row of the point. I used that row as a starting point to attach the tip of the ear and sewed down. Feet- make 4 Chain 2, work 5 sc in 2nd chain from hook-join Round 1-4- SC in ea st around- 5 fasten off For feet placement, I just placed one foot at each corner of the starting round. Trunk: Ch 2, 4 sc in 2nd chain from hook Round 1-7-SC in ea st around, fasten off The best way to place the trunk is about 1 or 2 rows below the eyes right in the middle. I hope you enjoy the pattern, again if anything doesn’t make sense or you have any questions please let me know so I can make the corrections or clarify better. Can't wait to see how other's turn out
