TIP! You may have to adjust the eye placement depending on yarn and hook size you use.
Stuff the head well. Cut a long piece of yarn and remove the eyes. Place the needle in the hole where the first eye was and thread the needle into a hole next to the eye hole. Go back and forth between each eye hole repeating the process from the first eye. Pull slightly on the yarn after going through each hole. Do this about 3 times on each side until you reach the look you want. Follow the pictures for help. There is also a youtube video I have for extra help on this process. Place behind the eyes. You may need to remove some of the filling behind the eyes. Follow the pictures below for help.

It will be much easier to stitch the toes now than later. Take a long thread of white yarn. Mark 3 spots on the front of the foot approximately between rounds 8 and 9. Place the pins one hole away from each other. Insert the needle into the top of the leg and bring the needle down to one of the pins. Insert the needle into a hole on the bottom of the foot between rounds 5 and 6. Do this approximately 4 times in each marked spot to make 3 toes. Weave in the tail ends.

Head and Body:

1. Thread a needle with a long strand of white yarn. Insert the needle into a hole on the trunk. Bring the needle to a lower corner of the eye. Wrap the yarn around the eye to a corner on top of the eye. Repeat for the 2nd eye. This creates a highlight.
2. Cut a long strand of darker gray yarn. Embroider some lines on the trunk if you would like.
3. Attach some green yarn on the back of the body above the skirt. Sl st around the waist. F/O and weave in the tail ends.

Helpful Tips:

Exact Colors and Brand of Yarn Used:
1. Gray: I love this yarn gray mist
2. Yellow: Red Heart Daffodil
3. Green: Red Heart Spring Green
4. Pink: I love this yarn Pink
You can use different eye and nose sizes. You might have to adjust the placements if you change the sizes. You can use different hook sizes and weights of yarn. It will just change the size of your elephant and you might need to adjust eye placement. How you stuff matters! The type of stuffing you use, how you stuff, all this matters on how your elephant turns out. I prefer Polyfil stuffing but you can use other types.
