NEW YORK (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Meat is murder, unless it’s made of cozy yarn.

When Stephanie Casper was given an assignment to create a campaign for a yarn company while studying advertising at Pratt in New York, she never realized she’d launch a small business as a result.

In order to demonstrate fun ways yarn could be used she made “Knit Meats,” slabs of T-bone steaks, sausages, hams, and chicken made completely out of yarn.

Casper says, “I wanted to show that you don’t have to make just a sweater using yarn. Knitting can work for anything. It was a very successful idea, and now I sell them on Etsy.”

Vegans and vegetarians have jumped on the Knit Meat bandwagon since, in Casper’s words, “It’s meat they can actually keep in the house.”

Her creations even landed her a job out of college with a creative agency that wants to use her warm and fuzzy creations for campaigns.
