The Knit for Peace Mysore holiday is the perfect way to discover India in comfortable surroundings and friendly company. Esteemed crochet and knitwear designer Jane Crowfoot will lead daily crochet and knitting workshops.

 Whatever your level of knitting or crochet, the beautiful setting of the Green Hotel will provide a starting place for a wonderful adventure. The heritage hotel was set up over 25 years ago by UK charity, the Charities Advisory Trust, to save a royal palace and a historic garden; it now provides employment to those from poor communities. Time Magazine (Asia edition) has even described it as the ‘best place in Asia to improve your karma’. The hotel gives all profits to charities in India.

 In the mornings guests will knit and crochet, under the pergola in the prize-winning gardens, with tutor Jane Crowfoot there to teach and inspire. During the afternoons, and on weekends, guests have the chance to shop and sightsee (temples, palaces & wildlife). They can also take the opportunity to visit local charitable projects supported by CAT and the Green Hotel.

Knit for Peace distributes hundreds of thousands of knitted items to those in need at home and abroad, they also raise funds to support knitting groups in disadvantaged communities both in the UK and overseas. The price of the holiday includes a donation to the charity.
