c2c Elephant

c2c Elephant

MAY 14, 2021

If you're looking for corner to corner crochet animal patterns, look no further! This adorable corner to corner (C2C) Elephant is just one of six Safari animal patterns that I am designing for a corner to corner graphghan.

If you're not up to the task of crocheting six animal graphs, you could easily turn this Elephant graph into wall art or a large pillow.  Just follow the instructions from my Fox pattern if you choose to make a pillow.

These fun & free corner to corner animal graphs are perfect for beginner crocheters. They are fairly small and don't use too many colors.

Whether you crochet the graphghan or just a pillow, I think it would be a fun crochet gift for a safari animal loving child, friend or family member. It would also make an awesome baby shower gift for a safari animal themed nursery. I hope you like my pattern!
