(18sc, 3 hdc, 1 trunk, 1 tail) (The ch7 and the hdc worked into the chains and around post of st counts as your trunk/ the ch7 with sl sts and ch3’s is your tail)

Ear: Ch3, sl st around post of one dc on Rnd 2, ch4. sl st around post of one dc on Rnd 1, ch2, turn, 4 dc in ch4 loop, 3 dc in ch3 loop, ch2, sl st in same st as joining.

Finish off.

Rnd 4: Join CB (leaving a very long end for embroidering eye and mouth) with a sl st to next sc, ch3, 1 dc in same st, 2 dc in each of the next 4 sts, ch1, skip trunk (make sure trunk is in front of your work), 2 dc in each of the next 3 sts, ch1, 1 sc in BBL of each of the next 2 dc, ch1, 2 dc in each of the next 2 sts, ch1, 1 sc in BBL of each of the next 2 dc, ch1, 2 dc in each of the next 4 sts, ch1 (make sure Elephant’s tail is in front of your work), 2 dc in each of the next 6 sts 1 dc in same st as first dc, join with sl st to top of beginning ch3.
(4sc, 41dc, 6-ch1 spaces) (Beginning ch3 this Rnd only counts as dc)

Note: If you want your Elephant to have a more rounded edge try doing all of Rnd 4 in Back Back Loops (BBL) only. This will leave the front and back loops free and this will create a slight ridge. Here’s a link to a square doing Rnd 4 in BBL only and a link to a diagram showing BBL for different stitches:
