A Random Act of Kindness is a quick knit with big heart designed to inspire kindness to one another. It is a textured triangular scarf knit on a bias in dk weight yarn, making it a fast knit perfect for gift knitting or as an act of kindness to yourself. This is a functional yet versatile knit, perfect as an accessory to dress up an outfit or as a garment to keep one warm during cooler weather.
As with its sister-shawl, Pay It Forward, A Random Act of Kindness was created to spread sweetness. It is a marvellous project for gift-knitting or giving to someone who could use an extra bit of warmth and kindness. In addition, part of the proceeds will be used to help others through art, mental health and youth support initiatives as well as in the form of loans through Kiva. See my Kiva lending page here
Furthermore, another way I want to pay it forward is to offer this pattern at a pay-what-you-can rate to those who otherwise might not be able to afford it. If you are unable to contribute proceeds at this time, please message me and I will send you the pattern for free. I have set a number of copies per month to pay it forward in this way.
If you are not able to afford this pattern at this time, please message me and I will send you a copy.
