What you need to know

As well as being king of the jungle, our handsome Indian elephant Raja by Val Pierce will soon become king of your heart. With his bright ceremonial dress and flapping ears, he is certainly a sight to behold and is worked in moss stitch, giving him a lovely textured finish. If you're not familiar with this stitch, work a swatch first to practice it by casting on ten stitches and then working (k1, p1) to end on the first row and (p1, k1) to end on the second row.

Don't forget to save your PDFs to your computer or tablet device as soon as it has been downloaded.
