While I take a break from designing flags (I have greater empathy for those early flag makers now), I’ll post instructions for the elephant squares. I designed one and wove it up. Decided his (or her) head was too big, so I drew up another one. (Sounds a lot easier than it is!) I’ll post both and you can pick the one you like.

If you want the elephant to face the other direction, follow each row from end to beginning.

4 Thoughts on “Elephant — 6-inch Pattern Weave

  1. I would love to weave these elephants but…they may be too advanced for me. What does P mean? And if it means “pass” what do you do with the yarn between pages to the next worked stitch? Do you carry it in the back? Thanks-Jan

      Hi Jan, There’s a Glossary page at the top of the blog. It explains all the abbreviations I use. If you haven’t woven patterns before, and if you have a 4″ loom, you might want to try one of the 4″ size first, just to get a little experience. P means plain weave, the standard under and over stitch.
