My Swap Partner had not requested holiday elephants. I just was in a holiday mood when I decided on my theme. Therefore, I decided I needed to include at least one non-themed item. After I realized the Red Heart Baby wasn’t going to work, I searched through my Crochet World DVD to see what they had for elephant patterns. I found one in the June 2001 Crochet World Magazine called Elephant Twins.
My swap partner had requested blue and red as favorite colors so I shifted the pink dress of the original pattern to red and left the boy in his blue suit.
I followed the pattern for the girl, but switched to the Red Heart ears when making the boy. They just worked better. When I found this pattern, I had hoped it would work for as a substitute for the Red Heart Baby pattern. However, the assembly proved to be awkward and that is when I hit on the idea of using the holiday patterns for the Pilgrim and Leprechaun.
While I liked the girl's dress, I probably would not return to this pattern. I much preferred the pattern I used for the Easter elephant which also has a boy.
