Eco-friendly wipes, soap saver, scrubber and dishcloths knitting patterns

Hi, my name is Sonya and I create the patterns for The Road to Knitting but when I’m not working on patterns for here I make products for our sister company Jefferson Crafts! Jefferson Crafts sells “beautifully crafted eco items for your home”. Our ethos is all about getting people live more sustainably so I thought why not share the eco love with my Road to Knitting fans? I have decided to put all our current knitted items onto one pattern pack for you.

The first pattern in the pack is for reusable make-up wipes, I knitted these out of cotton but used a moss stitch pattern to give them a gentle exfoliating finish. I made some coloured and some plain but actually they all wash well so the choice is yours. These little pads can be used with any make-up remover you like and then popped in with your general washing, I think the make-up remover must help in the washing to get them clean enough without needing to soak them. This cuts down on consumption of cotton wool or make-up remover wipes (which actually contain plastic so don’t biodegrade well).
