Join in with our new Easter Elephants Appeal, where thousands of knitted elephants will be filled with a Creme Egg and sold to raise funds for CHUMS Charity.
Get those needles working and see how many Easter Elephants you can create! Can you manage a whole herd?! We want you to get creative, and knit them in a kaleidoscope of colours; the more unique the merrier. You could make life-like grey elephants, or even in purple and orange to match the CHUMS Charity logo – it’s up to you.
Feel free to personalise your elephants by designing hats, scarves or accessories for them, or keep it simple with a more traditional look, every Elephant is welcome!
Embroidered Eyes, Please!
For the safety and cuddliness of our elephants, we kindly ask you to replace buttons or any other adornments with lovely, embroidered eyes. Safety first, right?
And Elephant Egg Cosies only! In the pattern, there are options galore for different elephant end products but we’re aiming for the just elephant egg cosies! So, if you could follow the pattern with the egg cosy format, that would be fantastic.
Feel free to let your creativity flow while crafting these cosies and know that your work is contributing to providing our mental health and bereavement. If you have any questions or need clarification, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
Thank you for being the magical makers behind our elephant egg cosies. Let the knitting adventure begin!
Simply register your details with us using the form on this page to join our knitting crew, and we’ll email you the pattern.
Send your finished elephants to us at the address below by Sunday 7th January 2024, marking your parcel ‘Easter Elephants’.
