    Hi Elena,
    Did you mean 2 medium hearts for the elephant ears? On the pictures it looks like large for the head and medium for the ears!

      Gina, I was using the same Large Heart pattern for the head and for the ears but different thread size and hooks. For the head – crochet cotton thread size 3 and hook 2.75 mm, for the ears – crochet cotton thread size 10 and hook 1.8 mm.
      Thank you!

    Elena, thank you for your reply. I am using Caron Simply Soft yarn so I will use the medium heart for the ears.
    Thanks again for sharing the lovely patterns!
