Last week I came up with an Elephant chart for someone at Ravelry (the big elephant is adapted from an old filet crochet design, the small one is my original). This week I decided to knit the charts in 2 different versions- a tam, and a regular hat.
The gray/white/red hat came out perfectly, with elephants marching around the perimeter. The neon tam came out well too, though the motifs don't show up as sharply as on the other hat. I did realize that the large elephant gets *cut* in half by the tam fold, though that doesn't matter when it's on a head, since that part is totally visible. But while it's laying flat, the big elephant doesn't show.
Both of these patterns are child sized. Each version is a single page.
