My sister-in-law introduced me to the world of Amigurumi, which is Japanese mini crochet animals. I fell in love with so many of the darling little animals, I had to learn to crochet and get started! So my first crochet project ever is this little elephant! If you want the pattern, I got it at www.lionbrand.comI'm going to make a mobil for Max with a bunch of different animals, this one is a bit big for a mobil so I put a rattle in it, and it will be a fun toy for his room. So fun! You'll have to "google" Amigurumi and check out all the amazing little animals and things people have made!
