Stephanie's Elephant Square
12 inch 3D square, does take some assembly.

Do not finish off gray, just leave the yarn to pick up in round 7.

Round 8: Join white to any corner, ch 4, (dc, ch 1) 3 times in same corner, [*skip next dc, (dc in next hdc, ch 1, skip next hdc) to corner loop*, (dc, ch 1) 4 times in corner - corner made: 2nd sp is corner sp] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 4. Finish off White

Round 9: Join pink to any corner sp, ch 4, (dc, ch 1) 3 times in same corner sp, [*skip next dc, (dc in next sp, ch 1, skip next hdc) to corner corner sp*, (dc, ch 1) 4 times in corner - corner made: 2nd sp is corner sp] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 4

Round 10: Sl st to corner sp, ch 4, (dc, ch 1) 3 times in same corner sp, [*skip next dc, (dc in next sp, ch 1, skip next hdc) to corner corner sp*, (dc, ch 1) 4 times in corner - corner made: 2nd sp is corner sp] 3 times and * to * once more, join to 3rd ch of beg ch 4. Finish off.


Ears (make 2)
Row 1: With gray, Ch 6, sc in 2nd ch from hook, sc in next 5 ch, ch 1, turn.

Row 2: 2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next 3 sc, 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, turn,

Row 3: 2 sc in 1st sc, sc in next 5 sc, 2 sc in next sc, ch 1, turn,

Row 4: sc in next sc, hdc in next sc, dc in next 2 sc, sc in next sc, dc in next 2 sc, hdc in next sc, sc in next sc. Finish off.

Attach ears on either side of circle in free loops of round 3.

Trunk
Ch 8, hdc in 3rd ch from hook, hdc in next ch, sc in next 2 ch, 3 sc in last ch, DO NOT TURN, work in around in free loops of beg ch, sc in next 2 ch, hdc in next 2 ch. Finish off.
