Author(s): EPIPA


Learn how to knit more sustainably with this practical guide from knitting blogger and environmentalist, Epipa. This collection of 20 projects shows you how you can make your knitting more environmentally friendly by choosing the most eco friendly yarns such as bamboo, organic cotton, linen and flax, as well as tips on how to reduce your yarn footprint. As well as advice on yarn sourcing there are patterns for items to help you live a more zero waste lifestyle. The projects include knitted tea towels, dish clothes, and shopping bags so you don't need to buy 'disposable' plastic versions. Many of the projects are suitable for beginner knitters, and all the basic knitting instructions are included, but there are also more complicated projects including a knitted top and backpack for those with more experience.
