People Are Knitting Sweaters to Help Rescued Elephants

Elephants may be jumbo-sized, but they're still quite emotionally sensitive. So the elephants rescued from abuse who live at the Wildlife SOS Elephant Conservation and Care Center rely on the compassion and love of their caretakers. 

Unfortuantely, as much as the voluteers at the center love their charges, they can't hug their whole bodies all day long to keep them warm during a surprising cold spell in India. So instead, the volunteers are working to knit the elephants jumbo-sized sweaters to keep them cozy and warm during the freezing winter weather.

Each sweater takes about four weeks to make, but that's a small price to pay when it means keeping rescued elephants happy and healthy.

Looks to me like the women knitting them in the picture are distinctly using two needles -thus they are knitted. But thanks for trying to argue a point no one cares about anyway.
