Want to knit your way to a worthy cause? Inspired to take action, but don’t know where to start? This project is one of 5 in the Change Makers e-book. Are you ready to be a #changemaker ?

Capitol Cardi is a top-down, seamless, curvy cardi for a cause. It was inspired by time spent at the Oregon State Capitol lobbying (and knitting!) for progressive legislation that supports equality. Wear it over your favorite activist logo t-shirt (note the curvy front won’t block your message) or throw in a little waist shaping hack and wear it with a vintage dress. Either way, Capitol is the cardi for the activist knitter!

About the project:
Change Makers is a collaboration of makers FOR makers. Inside you’ll find 5 knitting patterns with recipes & essays to inspire you, and all proceeds are donated to The National Women’s Law Center and the Southern Poverty Law Center.
