Our Hewitt's Creek knitting club will be collecting knitted squares this year to give to patients of Hospice and the RVH. If you would like to knit up some squares, we'd gladly accept them here at the school OR we're also looking for donations of all types of yarn. We will be looking for some crocheters in the spring who will be able to assist us in joining up our knitted squares to form the blankets. This is an outreach project and a community project.
**** ANY TYPE OF YARN CAN BE USED...AS LONG AS THE SQUARE MEASURES 7 in. by 7 in. & is in the GARTER STITCH
example: 1 pair of 5mm knitting needles
Shetland Chunky (100g)
Cast on 30 stitches ( this should measure 7 inches long)
****KNIT IN GARTER STITCH (all rows are knitted) until the square measures 7 inches wide.
Please drop off your squares and/or yarn in our front lobby!
Thank you very much!
