In 2010, Kristen began a growing collection of patterns that are dedicated to supporting the use and production of eco-friendly yarns. Her Caterpillar Knits patterns use yarns that are organic, fair trade, low carbon footprint, recycled, animal friendly or vegan yarns that use low impact, natural dyes, or no dye at all. By creating these patterns, Kristen hopes to inspire others to join her quest to sustain the well-being of our Earth with each yarn decision we make.
