This was never going to cut it:
Although I understood this "shorthand" I couldn't expect others to have the vaguest idea what this all meant!
I started knitting........
until I had made all these elephant parts, assembled them and recorded exactly what I did. Then it was simply a matter of formatting the information into an easy-to-understand document and uploading it into my Etsy store. The elephant is mostly based on spherical and cylindrical shapes and quite easy to make for anyone with some knitting experience.
Oh, did I mention that I really like elephants?
