This cute Chubby Elephant crochet pattern from Spin a Yarn Crochet will do great as your first amigurumi project. Skills required to craft this piece include single crochet and a bit of shaping which makes it very beginner-friendly. The elephants are made of two body panels you need to assemble together with an additional round of stitches around the edges. Before stitching them up be sure to add some cotton stuffing to make them super soft and obviously chubby!
A pair of this cute crochet elephant amigurumi will be a lovely addition to your child’s room. It’s more than likely that they will become their favorite playthings too! Use super bulky Bernat Velvet yarn to work up your Chubby Elephant project into lush, velvety cuddly toys. Since they go entirely of yarn, they will also make a wonderful gift idea for a baby. Follow the subtle striped color scheme of pink and grey or experiment with bolder shades.
