Lions into Elephants

Now that Christmas has passed I can share some of my crafty projects I been working on over the last month or two, as they were mostly presents. This was the project I set myself to make some of the little boys we know - a lion which turns into an elephant. I've heard it's been a hit with the little ones who got one.

The knitting pattern comes from Itty Bitty Toys by Susan B. Anderson. I really enjoyed kniting these and I learnt to knit in the round using double-ended needles which I hadn't tried before.

Here's what the lions turned into...

And here's how they work...

Happy New Year! I'll be back with more present projects soon.
