Oh Webster, quite possibly my favorite of my NEW collection of amigurumi crochet bookmark patterns.  If you have an elephant lover in the house, you need a Webster too! Webster the elephant bookmark is simply adorable. Add a bow to the top of the head to make him more “girlie” or simply leave him as is. He’s adorable either way. 😉

Looking to grow your amigurumi bookmark collection? We have a duck bookmark pattern, a bunny rabbit bookmark pattern, a frog bookmark pattern a pig bookmark pattern,a bookworm bookmark pattern and NOW the elephant bookmark pattern! Whew!

Remember that you want to use Invisible Decrease for the sc2tog (decreases).  It helps to create a prettier, smoother transition in amigurumi.
