I’m Lindsay Lewchuk! You can read more about me on the website “about” page & my unique challenges in the blog post “Half A Life” as well as the Patternfish January newsletter “From the Ambassador’s Desk – Knitting and EI” and an older article from my collegiate days, “NCSU Valedictorian Never ‘Attended’ Class“.

Puddles is my self-taught service Great Dane, companion, and daily joy. He “danes” to make appearances frequently around Knit Eco Chic’s business activities. I hope he brings as many smiles to your day as he does to mine.
Goofy Puddles in Great Dane snood

And yes, organic cotton is Puddles eco fiber of choice!  He loves his Great Dane snood, but prefers to fashion it as a cowl so that his ears are free to bring delight.

I use animal-fiber free eco yarns for several reasons. First of all, I use animal-fiber free eco yarns due to my own allergies. However, I also firmly believe it is good social conscious philosophy to use yarns that support the people who create them and the environments/ bio systems in which they are made!

The best way to reach me for pattern support is email: knitecochic@gmail.com

Please include the name of the pattern you are working on as well as the size you are knitting (if it is a sized item)

Do you love to connect over social media? I do and I would love to connect with you! Help me easily find you by:

  • Tagging your FOs with #wearyourknitting and show off your hand knits in action!
  • Tagging #knitecochic for WIPs and other progress pictures featuring patterns by yours truly.
Thank you! Puddles and I love all of you too :-).

Ya! Eco knitting is still flying low on the radar so I’m looking for knitters who are interested in spreading the eco knitting word through Knit Eco Chic patterns.

If you are interested in being a brand ambassador, drop me a line at knitecochic@gmail.com. Be sure to include your location, what knitting groups you knit with, what eco yarns interest you and what Knit Eco Chic patterns call your name.

Being a Brand Ambassador is a mutual beneficial relationship. You get super perks, but there responsibilities too.

I do!

All my active patterns are available through Ravelry’s In-Store Sales program. I also offer individual wholesale on a case by case basis.

Independent Wholesale Pattern Inquiries
Please email Lindsay at knitecochic@gmail.com subject line wholesale.  Be sure to include information about your LYS or retail location.

My FOs are available through Etsy and Ecohabitude. If there is a FO you are interested in that is not currently posted, please message me.

FO: finished object (cowl, scarf, shawl, garment, baby hat, Great Dane snood, etc.)

EU customers please purchase your patterns through the Knit Eco Chic website, Ravelry, or Patternfish.
