Swaying with the Wind: a Charity Knitting Pattern Collection
Love to knit?
Long to make a difference?
It’s time to put the two together!
Introducing Swaying with the Wind: a Charity Knitting Pattern Collection.
Now you can get immediate access to knitting patterns you can use for charity… and the charities that will take them!
Let Me Guess:
- You’re done with excuses, right? You’re ready to make a difference in your world now, aren’t you?
- You don’t want your knitting skill level to hold you back anymore… right?
- You don’t want to get bored with knitting, but you also want to be able to relax with it and not get a headache.
Am I right?
I used to struggle with this, too.
Over the years, I’ve slowly been improving my knitting skills so I could do the kind of knitting I wanted.
Once I learned more knitting techniques, I had that familiar two-fold struggle. I wanted to move beyond garter stitch and enjoy my knitting process. But I also wanted to knit patterns I could easily memorize, so I could relax with my knitting.
(I love to knit while watching TV, listening to music or a podcast, or while watching my daughter’s swim practice.)
And I had the struggle you probably have had as well: the struggle to figure out who will take what you want to knit.
All of this is exactly why I've created Swaying with the Wind for you!
Here’s what you’ll find in Swaying with the Wind: a Charity Knitting Pattern Collection.
8 how-to knitting videos, so you don’t have to hunt down separate knitting technique tutorials for your project.
6 patterns, with a total of 18 variations, so you’ll be able to knit for nearly anyone, and you can have enough variety to keep things interesting.
Finally, a list of charities that will take every project in the collection, so you don’t have to worry where you’ll send your project when you’re done. And most importantly, so you can really start making a difference with your knitting!
This isn’t just another book of patterns. These patterns were designed especially with charity knitters in mind.
Also, where else can you get a book of patterns with tutorial videos just a click away, within the book itself?
And, how many pattern books tell you exactly where you can donate the projects you make with them?
This eBook is perfect for you even if:
Imagine what you could do if you didn’t have to hunt for patterns every time you want to do some charity knitting. Imagine not having to look up how to do an increase or decrease, or how to join knitting in the round, or a particular type of bind-off, whenever you were in the midst of following a pattern.
And imagine how great it would feel not to stress out about where you could offer the project you’ve created. Imagine knowing exactly who would take it, because that information is right at your fingertips.
Don’t you want to live this kind of charity knitting life?

About me, Nicole Haschke
I've been a part of the Knitting for Charity website and Knitting Nuggets Newsletter since 2011. I'm now the sole writer/publisher of the posts and articles you find in both places. In short, charity knitting has been my life for the past 7 years! I've gotten to know countless charity knitters, founders, and directors. I know what charities are out there and what they need.
I'm not exactly an expert designer, but I had amazing help testing these patterns thanks to some wonderful test knitters.
And as for the videos? I've been Facebook Live-ing similar tutorials for the past several months, and I've been knitting for nearly 12 years. I'm excited to help you learn the joy of knitting!
The answer to the question you're asking.
Why should I buy this eBook when I can just find free patterns online?
That’s a great question, really. And it deserves an answer.
Yes, you can find lots of free patterns online. Lots… and lots… and lots.
But isn’t that part of the problem? There are so many knitting patterns available for free online that it can get overwhelming. Wouldn’t you agree?
And sometimes it’s hard to find patterns that fit your skill level. I hear time and again from beginning knitters who really struggle to find patterns they can knit easily.
Not only are the patterns in this eBook easy, but they come with videos that address every technique involved in every pattern. Have you ever seen a free pattern online that did that?
Finally, while you will find tons of free knitting patterns online, you won’t often find them linked with a charity that will accept them. So if you want to knit a pattern for charity, you’ll have to find (on your own) a charity that you can send your finished project to.
Thanks to this eBook, you don’t have to do that! Charities that will accept these projects are included right in the eBook.
So by purchasing this book, you don’t need to worry about learning new skills and tracking down tutorials. You don’t have to take the time to scour the Internet looking for the right pattern. And you won’t have to spend time figuring out who will take your projects, either.
Doesn’t that sound like a great deal?
One final comment, for those still on the fence:
So here’s the deal:
You can spend all your time looking for patterns. Tracking down tutorials. Figuring out who you might be able to send your project to.
Or… you can purchase this eBook. It’ll free you to just sit down and start knitting, whenever you want. And you can experience sooner, rather than later, the joy of making a difference in the world by knitting for someone in need.
It’s up to you. (But I’d rather you experience the latter!)
