August 1 marks the beginning of National Peach Month, and we’re here to help you celebrate! Peaches pack a lot of great health benefits: they are high in vitamins A, B and C and a medium peach only contains about 37 calories. Plus, the juice from peaches is a great moisturizer and can even be found in some cosmetics.
Of course, you don’t have to eat a peach to celebrate National Peach Month! Aside from eating peaches, there are still plenty of other ways to celebrate! Check out some of our favorite peach patterns below for both knitters and crocheters. Each one of these free patterns uses a pretty peach color yarn in the design.
Plus, for those of you that would also like to bake or cook with peaches this month, scroll down for a few of our favorite (free!) mouth-watering peach recipes from our friends at RecipeLion!
