Reminder: Join us in knitting/crocheting a blanket in memory of Pat Gallagher

07/10/2022 8:25 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Pat’s husband Steve has gifted the Chapter with a square that Pat knitted. We will be using this square as the middle square of a blanket which will be donated to an organization we think can use it the most. We ask any interested chapter members to knit or crochet a square to add to the blanket. We will be collecting squares at the end of September 2022. Squares will be sent to Helen-Ann Brown Epstein, who will connect the squares to create a blanket. If you are working on a square, email Helen-Ann or Abby Adamczyk and we will let you know where to send it.

Choose any pattern that you want to try. Squares can be as simple or complicated as you would like. We have included a few simple patterns below. If you are new to knitting, that’s great! This is a perfect project to get started! Check out the tutorials linked at the end of this post. Maybe you’ll make more than one!

Requirements

  • ·         Acrylic yarn
  • ·         Worsted weight yarn (or equivalent)
  • ·         Squares that are about 8-inches square or 4-inches square
  • ·         Completed by the end of September

Sending in your square(s)
