By now you have probably come across the crocheted tiny dragon, the crocheted tiny octopus and whale, and the tiny crocheted dogs! But what if you could crochet a tiny zoo? You can! Let’s start with elephants!
Let’s start with this insanely tiny micro elephant! His body is about 5 mm and with his trunk and tail he will be about 8 mm.
You will need sewing thread and a crochet hook that is 0.35 mm for the pattern. If you do not have that hook you can use a hook that is 0.4 mm or 0.5 mm. If you use the bigger hooks, your elephant will end up bigger.
You will need to be able to make a magic circle, make a slip stitch, and decrease and increase stitches.
Too tiny? Well, you can go bigger for sure! Check out this miniature elephant! Still tiny and still totally adorable!
She calls this one “Peanut”. He is only 2 inches tall! She said you can make him in only a few hours. You only need to be at a medium skill level.
The PDF pattern is 10 pages long with detailed instructions. She also included a lot of photos to help you along the way.
To make “Peanut” you will need worsted weight yarn in gray or the color of your choice
-3.25 (D) crochet hook
-Pair of 6mm black safety eyes (you can find these at your local Jo-Ann craft stores, here on Etsy, or Amazon)
-Polyester Fiberfill Stuffing
-Optional: a small piece of pipe cleaner for poseable trunk
How about this little elephant? This pattern also comes as a digital format PDF. It has 12 pages with more than 30 photos. The difficulty rating on this is medium.
The pattern is made for those that can already crochet well. If you crochet using a similar tension and use the material suggested, your elephant should be about 4cm tall!
I love them all! I want all of the tiny critters in every color of the rainbow!
