Little loomed elephant bookmark
I’m trying to make up fun stocking stuffers, including for my Samaritan’s Purse Operation Shoebox’s. So I made an elephant bookmark on a loom.
With a 12 peg loom e-wrap 1 peg. Knit flat 20 rows. E-wrap all the pegs. Knit in the round for 3 rounds. Purl 1 round. Knit 3 rounds. Pick off all stitches with tail running through them, pull closed. With beginning tail, pull first row closed. Secure face circle and trunk.
For ears e-wrap all pegs, knit 1 round, purl 1 round, knit a round, pick off all stitches with tail running through them, pull closed. Sew 1st round closed. Make 2 ears, sew to upper sides of head. Sew button eyes or make buttons to suit yourself.
