I'm the madmonkeyknitter from www.madmonkeyknits.com and I design and sell mad knitting patterns. Here is my Elvis Elephant knitting pattern. This is the latest pattern from my madmicroknits range. All the patterns in this series are knitted in microknit format using no 8 perle cotton on needles any size between 1.00 and 1.50 mm, depending on how daring you are feeling. For Elvis I chose size 1.2 mm needles and he is just 4 inches (ie 10 cm) high.Obviously Elvis will be slightly bigger if you choose a larger needle size and slightly smaller if you choose a smaller needle size.
