“Villagers knit jumpers for Indian elephants to protect the large mammals from near-freezing temperatures ”

“Local women make colourful jumpers for formerly abused animals after staff at conservation centre warn of temperatures dipping close to freezing point.”

“Women in a village near the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Centre in the northern city of Mathura reportedly began producing the colourful, pyjama-like garments after staff at the centre warned temperatures were approaching sub-zero at night.”

Instead of doing things like studying, I’ve been making a few blanket sized pattern charts. This one is Foxes, which is heavily inspired by this painting that was made the amazingly talented @zandraart!

The pattern is free for anyone and everyone to use! While I do recommend using corner to corner crochet to make it, you can really use whatever stitch you would like. The colors and stitch type are just suggestions after all!
