Todays daily new amigurumi free crochet pattern is Amigurumi Enid the Elephant.
I want to give you some informations about this pattern ;

Difficulty: Intermediate, US terminology
Materials:
– 2.5mm hook/C-2 (US)
– 4ply yarn/fingering > less than 50g
yarn in each colour: MINT, WHITE and
PINK
– A pair of 8mm safety eyes
– Scissors
– Tapestry needle
– Polyester toy stuffing
– Stitch marker (optional)

Abbreviations:
– ch = chain
– MR = magic ring
– sc = single crochet
– inc = single crochet increase (2 sc in one stitch)
– dec = decrease (sc 2 together)
– BLO = back loops only
– FLO = front loop only
– sl st = slip stitch
– (..) = repeat the space in brackets the given number of times
– [..] = total number of stitches

Notes:

Amigurumi is usually stitched in the round and a yarn with no stretch is best, I prefer cotton or cotton blend.
– When changing colour, yarn over the new colour and pull through on the stitch prior.
– For this pattern, the following yarns were used:
o MINT = Hobbii Rainbow Cotton 8/4 in col. 25
o PINK = Hobbii Cotton Kings 8/4 in col. 19
o WHITE = Hobbii Cotton Kings 8/4 in col. 01
– Generally, the hook you use for amigurumi will be a smaller than for other crochet as you want the stitches tight.
– Your tension, the yarn thickness and hook size used will affect the size of the finished item. My Enid the Elephant is approximately 8cm tall (3¼ inches).
– I have used safety eyes for this pattern but you may choose to embroider. Please ensure that there are no loose fittings.
