The Eco Hero

ou compost every table scrap, your bicycle has more miles on it than your car, you look your best in compact fluorescent light and in your vocabulary, ‘disposable’ is a four letter word. You are, an Eco Hero.  And what does every superhero need?  A cape.

You realize that our planet is our most precious resource and that taking care of it should make every day Earth Day. You get up at the crack of dawn to take your recycling to the curb, so who says you shouldn’t look great doing it?

I found a lovely little thick and thin yarn called ‘Refashion’ by Plymouth Yarns and knew it was destined to be a cape.  The versatile open collar makes is fun to wear a variety of ways and it’s bright blues and greens are as pretty as earth from space. This recycled wool and cashmere yarn will make your little green heart go pitter patter.

It’s a quick knit and unique enough that you can share your vision for a better planet with everyone who asks about it. Here’s the pattern in a .pdf

    I’m sorry but I don’t see where to get your pattern. I love it, would like to make it and would love to support eco yarns.
    Thanks, Carol
