When you knit the Skanda Vale Hospice Knitted Elephant, you are knitting for a good cause. This knitted animal pattern makes an adorable elephant you can send directly to the hospice or sell on their behalf in order to raise money for their new in-patient unit. Skanda Vale Hospice is located in South West Wales. The hospice is run by the monks and nuns of Skanda Vale Monastery. Interestingly enough, the monastery is also an animal sanctuary and the inspiration for this knit elephant pattern is Valli, the elephant who calls the sanctuary home. Work up this cute knitted animal for yourself or your kids or consider donating it to the hospice to support their admirable efforts.

Adorable elephants and for a good cause, too. How lovely.

This elephant is so cute. I have a few different elephant patterns, but this one reminds me of the classic knitted toy patterns. It is perfect for craft tables at bazaars and fundraisers. I am sure they would be a big hit in the childrens ward of our hospital too.

This is the cutest pattern I have ever seen in my life! I can't wait to make it for my little sister! She'll love it! It's so original )

I am so happy to find this beyond cute elephant pattern. I have never made a stuffed animal. My 20 yrs daughter has her entire bedroom and bathroom full of elephant things. I think it will be something very special to have a handmade one from mom. Easy pattern so I think I can do it )

I just LOVE this project! It has so much meaning, with the elephant being a symbol of the hospice and the comfort it will bring to patients. Reminds me of knitting prayer shawls for those in need. Plus it's a beginner pattern so anyone can knit a bunch of them and send them off. I think this would be a great way to get kids involved in knitting.

If you love elephants, then you need to make this crazy cute pattern. Plus, you can donate it to the hospice and take advantage of the season of giving!

Not only is this an adorable pattern, but it's for a great cause too!
