A Wee Knitted Elephant Man!

I love this.
I flaming well LOVE IT!

Found on the brilliant Flickr page of someone called ‘MaffersToys’, a wee knitted Elephant Man!

From the Flickr page:

“I am NOT AN ELEPHANT. I AM NOT AN ANIMAL! I am a human being! I’m… a man.”

A toy version of Joseph Carey (aka John) Merrick, also known as The Elephant Man. In spite of what many people assumed of him upon sight, he was a highly affectionate, caring and intelligent man for whom I have the utmost respect..

I decided to publish the pattern, so see my profile if you are interested.
