Crochet an Elephant Pattern My Journey to Finding the Right Crochet Pattern

This Was my first attempt at crocheting an elephant it wasn't pretty so I started over.
Sometimes free crochet patterns are great and sometimes they don't work at too well. For instance I am an experienced crocheted and tried using the vintage Elephant Crochet pattern. I believe I was lost because the pattern started at the front leg unlike Amigurumi crochet toy patterns that work in the round and have individual pieces sewn together. 
I am trying to crochet an actual elephant that isn't like a stuffed bear but that actually stands on four feet. 

Here is my current attempt at crocheting an elephant it's going much better.  
This pattern is much easier but again working with a free pattern I think there are some errors in the pattern and I am modifying it a bit. I am using Caron Grey One Pound Yarn  which works really well for crochet animals especially when adding the stuffing. 
Right now I am working on the elephant legs and tail.  I have yet to decide it I will be crocheting a pair of tusks for the elephant.  I guess once his eyes are on I can see how he looks.  
Elephant Crochet Patterns
12 Crochet Elephant Patterns  - This will provide you with a variety of crochet patterns of elephants to choose from depending on what size and style you are looking for.  Some of them are free, plus there is a free guide called The Foolproof Guide to Adorable Amigurumi to download that is extremely helpful when making crochet animals.
The Foolproof Guide to Adorable Amigurumi
In my attempt to find the perfect elephant and animals to crochet I will also be purchasing the following crochet books to help me out in the future. I find that sometimes the purchased patterns have less errors and better guides than some of the free patterns.  It all depends on how well written the pattern is.

This is great book because in addition to the adorable crochet elephant pattern there is an entire zoo filled with animals in the eBook.  The patterns include Monkey, Brown Bear, Hippo, Tiger, Rhino, Giraffe, Polar Bear, Zebra, Elephant, Alligator, and Lion.

Cute Little Animals crochet patterns
If you are going for more of a character look in your elephant you might want to consider getting the Cute Little Animals Crochet Book. It features Millicent Rose is a 'libearian' by day and a bingo fanatic by night. Archibald Hiram wears his striped PJs whenever he's not at work as a financial advisor. Rumored peanut shortages keep Wesley the blue elephant from joining the circus. Then there is Lourdes, a preppie purple hippo. Roscoe (Newgate) Kidd is a pirate panda who escaped from the zoo long ago. Scooter Pup is a likeable little fellow whose teeth get him in trouble. From the paranormal files we have Nestor Lochland, A.K.A the Loch Ness monster. Never ones to wait for mischief, Chaos A. Cat and his baby sis, Calamity, are always on the lookout for adventure.

Cute Critters to Crochet eBook
This classic book features animals made with a hosiery egg but I would use stuffing instead because they don't make the eggs anymore unless you use the plastic Easter eggs. 

 Cuddle Buddies Animals to Crochet for a Nursery or Baby Room
8 Fun animals to crochet for a nursery or babies room including a frog, pig, elephant, cow, monkey, bear, bunny and a duck.

 Crochet a boy or girl elephant pattern
This is a fun crochet toy for a baby girl or baby boy that you may want to crochet.
The pair makes a cute gift for a little one and it's a great crochet pattern featuring 9-1/2" x 10" elephants to crochet using worsted weight yarn.
