The Project Peace 2018 global knitalong launches December 1, a 21-day event created to spread peace to knitters around the world. Now in its third year, Project Peace will feature a pattern especially created for the KAL and 21 days of complementary blog posts on The Healthy Knitter focused on peace.

The KAL culminates on December 21, World-Wide Knit for Peace Day. The 2018 Project Peace pattern symbolizes “seeds of peace” representing that age-old wisdom that one simple seed, one peaceful act, can nurture others, growing and cultivating the peace we all seek. Blog posts will offer simple steps readers/knitters can take to create more peace and harmony in their own life, even as simple as enjoying a 20-minute walk in the outdoors.

This year’s proceeds from the Project Peace pattern will be donated to Seeds of Peace, teaching youth from around the world to be leaders that will transform their communities and resolve conflict. The other organization that will be supported is Gardens for Health, working to end chronic malnutrition, a known predictor of violence.

e-book Last year I was asked multiple times… how can I donate more? What an amazing question to receive. So, I’ve created 4 other patterns that will be released during PP18, at the end of PP18, one at the beginning of January, and the last will arrive at the beginning of February. It’s a way to keep the peaceful mindset long after PP18 ends. All patterns will be accessories and based on the “seeds of peace” theme. The ebook will include the PP18 main cowl pattern plus the 4 other to be released patterns.

Speckled versions: I’ve teamed up once again with Sharyn from YarnScout. The colorways used in the pattern “seed” and a separate sample “dove” are available from YarnScout. Sharyn is donating 20% of kit sales to Knitters 4 Peace. Plus each kit comes with an adorable peace pin that Sharyn made just for this occasion!

Solid versions: Beginning 11/16, solid yarns from Brim Collections will be available on The Healthy Knitter website. Once available, you’ll be able to link directly to the page. As always a portion of sales will be donated to the specified organizations. You’re gonna love this yarn.

Peace is a choice…. it begins with each one of us, be a seed of peace. During these times of unrest and conflict, we, as knitters can be role models for what it means to choose peace. Please join me during the month of December to focus on peace.
