Ellie The Elephant Baby Booties - Free Crochet Pattern

From watching Dumbo dozens of times to being glued in front of the tv whenever Babar was on, it's fair to assume that I had an obsession with elephants from a young age!
Now you might think 'Ellie' would be an obvious choice for the name of a set of cute little elephants like these, but I actually named them after my sweet sister, Elizabeth, who as a little girl shared my fondness of Dumbo too.

If you love animals but elephants aren't quite your thing, I'm happy to say I also have patterns for a pair of teddy bear baby booties AND a pair of duckling baby booties!

  9. Hi Olivia, that is beautiful and might i say very intricate. Thanks for sharing the pattern although i'm scrolling over your other post for baby boy designs.

  10. need help.... row 4 on the top of the show doesn't work for me... please someone help me!

  11. Thank you Olivia, for sharing your talent in design, and this adorable little elephant Booties pattern...

  12. do u have step by step videos of your projects, as I find it easer. thank you

  13. These are adorable. Is there a matching hat?

  14. I am having trouble with round 3. I had 40sts at the end of round 2 as per pattern. 12 increases on round 3 are listed, but only 50sts are said to be present at the end of round 3. Is there a mistake on round 3?
    Thank you

  15. I am having trouble on Round 3 of the sole, also. After round 2, there are 36 stitches as stated. But when I finish round 3, I have 49 stitches instead of 46. I have tried it over and over (about 6 times) and always with the same outcome. Also, the smallest (0-6 month) size ends up measuring over 4" instead of #3.5"
