Perch a Pigeon in Public

So tomorrow is World Wide Knit in Public Day! Believe it or not, I rarely knit in public myself, but I think it’s a great way to show fiber pride, educate people about the awesomeness of the craft, and recruit new knitters.

If you’re looking for a project to knit in public tomorrow, I have just the thing! Tiny Perching Pigeons is a free pattern that I designed a few years ago, originally for the purpose of knitting in public with the awesome people of Stitch London.

These guys knit up really fast, and if you’re so inclined, they’re a really fun project to leave behind for others to discover.

Speaking of leaving knitted presents for strangers, did you know there was an entire Ravelry group devoted to knitting tiny bunnies and hiding them around the world? They have more than 600 members!

You can find the free pattern for Tiny Baby Bunnies here.

If you’ll be knitting mochis, please take pictures and share in our Flickr group!

  1. Hm, I think some people are able to knit faster using continental style (holding the working yarn wrapped over your left finger instead of throwing the yarn for every stitch). But I’ve always done it the regular way, and I think I’ve just gotten faster with lots of practice!

  2. I am going into to town, and i announced to my mum that it is knit in public day! she said i should knit in town, and thats what i was gonna do, even if she was joking!!!
