I’m wondering if any of you would be interested in participating in another charity afghan that would be made in 12 inch squares…in all white yarns.
The blanket would be given to a charity I know of in Charlotte, North Carolina this Christmas.
A church in Charlotte does a “White Christmas” charity drive every year. All gifts are wrapped in white, and given to the poor in the community. I think a white blanket would make a nice gift to a needy family, and they would always remember that they received it at the White Christmas service.
All the squares would need to be knit and mailed to me by November 1st, to give me time to seam them all together in time for the charity program in December.
You can use any washable worsted weight WHITE yarn in your stash. You can use any design for your square. Just be sure to begin the square with 3 rows of all knit stitches, then begin and end each row with 3 or 4 knit stitches, then end the square with 3 more rows of all knit stitches. (This will create a nice garter stitch border around the square.)
Here is a pattern I have made that measures 12 inches:
You can use that design if you want, or just change the inner stitches for the design you want.
We need 35 squares. You can knit one or two squares, depending on how many people sign up for the project. Just let me know how many squares you are willing to make.
