What does it mean to be an environmentally conscious knitter? This book will help you find the answers. It doesn't preach, rather it provides you with the facts so you can make educated choices. From what makes a yarn organic to what sort of dyes to invest in, and how to recycle yarn yourself, there's a lot you can learn. And you'll discover that if we all work together, we can make a positive impact on the planet. Inside there are 20 contemporary patterns for you to enjoy, for clothes, furnishings, accessories and more. This book is a wonderful resource for knitters who care.

Eco-friendly yarns have become more common in recent years. In 'Knitting Green' Ann Budd encourages eco-conscious readers to decide how far they want to 'go green' and not to feel guilty if they haven't pursued a completely organic or recycled lifestyle. That said, this book contains a lot of information on current knitting industry practices, such as commercial dyeing, so you can make an informed decision next time you're on the hunt for new stash.

The projects, which range from classic wraps to an ingenious bike shopping bag, have all been thoughtfully designed, making this an essential guide to eco-knitting for anyone concerned about our planet's future.

Knitting Green explores ways to integrate green perspectives into knitting and day-to-day life with articles, essays and planet-friendly projects. It's a truly delightful book with 20 fashionable designs including a lace tunic, fingerless mitts, a cabled vest, knapsack, grocery bag plus hats, wraps, scarves and tank tops. We loved the teddy with a seed-filled beanbag to heat in the microwave then pop in his tummy. All the garment designs have full blocking diagrams with imperial and metric measurements, to translate into ideas for machine knitting. If you're used to working from lace charts in MKM, you'll easily follow many of those given in this book.
