Celebrate Earth Day every day with Knitting Patterns and Projects for Earth Day such as fun up-cycles, home decor and useful DIYs including fish scrubbies, dishcloths, and even a pencil case. Did you know you could make yarn out of a t-shirt? Or how about replacing dryer sheets with a yarn ball?
Read on my friends, read on.
Earth Day Patterns for the Home
When your factory made dishcloths wear out, replace them with hand knit 100 % cotton ones, knit yourself ( and all of your friends!) fabulous pillow covers and a vase – and throw in a trivet or two!

Earth Day Yarny Up-Cycles
Knitting is by very nature an earth friendly craft. Especially when you are replacing consumables with reusables, like the dryer sheets I mentioned above. Up-cycling previously used materials into a knittable yarn is not only brilliant, it’s cost effective, eco-friendly and just freaking awesome.
