I was amazed to discover that my much-loved original Charlie the Patchwork Elephant pattern was nearly five years old, having first been published in 2011! I’ve been wanting to improve and update that original design for some time now, and have finally managed to do so.
“New” Charlie has an upturned trunk, black beady eyes and smaller ears that are curved round the sides of his head. He’s still a very cheerful elephant of the patchwork variety, but I’ve reworked him using the “stitch n flip” technique rather than faux hexagons as I think this should make him much harder-wearing.
He’s a great example of making something special from nearly nothing and would make a unique gift too!
Charlie measures 11” tall (approx)
