Green Knitting- pt. 1

I’ve been looking into some ways I can reduce the waste I use on a daily basis. Yarn crafts have really helped me in reducing my anxiety, so why not tackle both of these at the same time?

Some of the ideas I’ve come up with are:

  • face rounds
  • grocery bags (including smaller bags for produce)
  • napkins/towels

If anyone has any other ideas, I’d love to hear them!


So far I’ve gotten around to making some face rounds. I used 100% cotton yarn and a 5.5mm crochet hook. In addition to reducing waste, I hope this will help encourage me to wash my face more often (or ever really…). Still working out the pattern; I’m not sure how I feel about the puff-stitch for this one.
