I was watching "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" with the kids. And just the idea of food and animals combined was brilliant in my mind! Amazing the foodimals they have come up with, Fla-Mango's, Shrimpansees and so many more! And off course the WaterMelophant! So funny! And I and the kids fell in love with them.
I had a few ideas in my head forming and I started playing with my Phildar and needle... and 2 days later this is the result!
I LOVE IT!!! And so do the kids!!!
I wrote the pattern down while making it. I haven't tested it and hoping by following it, you will have the same result. To make it bigger, you have to adjust the increase rows in the beginning, but once you increase them, you have to increase the mouth circle and the trunk. So write down what you do!
If you have any questions, let me know!
