The Stash Spring Kindness Project


The Stash Spring Kindness Project is a new project designed to spread kindness and joy through random acts of yarn.

How nice would it feel to be walking down the street and have a smiling stranger hand you a colorful, hand-made flower?  We dream of combining our love of yarn and fun to spread smiles and kindness with this project.


Buy a kit through the shop or use your own stash to knit and crochet flowers from our selection of patterns. Give the flowers + a Kindness Card to someone who needs a smile in your community and spread the Kindness!

Our first batch of Kindness Kits will debut at Vogue Knitting Live in Seattle April 5-7, 2013. Stop by our pop-up shop in Booth #206 to get yours!

After the event, kits and Kindness Cards will be available for sale at Stash.  A portion of the proceeds will be donated to a local charity.


Buy a kit or work from your own stash using the patterns kindly provided by the designers below.  Then share photos of your kits and flowers using the hashtag #Kindness on Ravelry, Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest! We’d love to see your random acts of yarn in the real world!

Follow our Kindness Pinterest board here.

A huge THANK YOU goes out to our generous Kindness Sponsors who got behind the project right from the start.  We couldn’t spread the smiles without you!

  2. I really like this flower pattern too-it’s SUPER easy and takes hardly any time at all:
