What is a global knitting
project? A global knitting project is one where knitters from around

the people receiving them.
8" x 8" (20cm x 20cm) squares needed.
This is a fun knitting or
crochet project that can be shared by young and old alike.
It's especially perfect for young knitters who are just learning to knit and lends well
to a school classroom as an aid to teaching community/global awareness and

Bits of scrap yarn can be knit
into squares and sent along to us to be sewn together
for such things as blankets and scarves.
Why Should You Participate?
How To Participate in Saving Lives
Where will the Blankets Be Distributed?
The squares you send to use
will be sewn together into blankets and scarves. These will be

homeless shelters, children's hospitals and any other organization or individual who is in need.
Want to participate but you
do not knit? We gladly accept donations of yarn and other
supplies or monetary donations so we can purchase these items.

that it did not turn out as planned. I am taking steps on the next project to ensure this does not
