Earth Day is for Knitters

Knitting is a great hobby for the eco-conscious. Patricia's Yarns customers knit re-usable shopping bags, make projects using environmentally friendly yarns, and often request environmentally sustainable fibers. Here is a list of great projects for Earth Day.

Stow away shopping bag is an Oat Couture pattern that will carry plenty of groceries and eliminate the need for a plastic bag!

If you are thinking of making an earth day gift for a friend you could knit up a quick coffee cup sleeve - a simple stockinette or experiment with cables for more fun!

Almost any sleeve can easily be knit up in an afternoon! A great use for leftover scraps from your stash!

There are many options for environmentally friendly knit projects available to us so lets keep the positive motion towards doing our part for the Earth. Happy Earth Day.
