In this blog, enjoy one lovely free pattern for the elephant pendant(s) and one is a paid pattern from Ravelry.

For the elephant, I used the inspiration from Sarah’s superb blog.  Do visit this blog for loads of fantastic other patterns too. 

I made the first little elephant pendant using Anchor knitting cotton, and then decided to try two more using some Indian Red Rose metallic knitting cotton along with 1.3 and 1.1 mm crochet hooks, I’ve made tinier little elephants, and they’re soooooooo darn cute, I’m sure to make them again.

I can’t thank Sarah enough for this cute pattern, that I’ve used so many times in so many different ways already.

Check out the same motif that I used as a door frame hanging, and then duplicated for the side of this nesting bowl. https://shyamanivas.blogspot.in/2015/10/miscellaneous-baby-stuff.html







Pattern # 2 : Celtic Choker

The exquisite neck piece is not a free pattern, Sorry. 
It’s a totally superb (not too expensive and well written) pattern at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/bracelet-wrist-cuff-celtic and I decided to convert it to a neckpiece, (with my individual small tweak).

Enjoyed this ?? I sure did.. come back right here for more freebie patterns
