Help to Keep Britain Warm with Knit for Peace

Knit for Peace charity have invited people to take part in their Keep Britain Warm campaign and need your knitted squares!

 

Knitting squares is one of the best ways to use up scrap yarns. So why not get rid of those odds and ends, whilst donating to a charity!

As an alternative to knitting squares for blankets, Knit for Peace have suggested using your squares to make dressing gowns. They have created a pattern for you to follow and assemble a gown – you can find a link to the pattern at the bottom of this post.

We think this is a wonderful opportunity for knitters to craft together for a good cause. Why not begin the project with your local knitting group? Or perhaps you could meet up with your friends and make your squares over a cup of tea and cake? (Knitting is always more enjoyable if there is cake involved!)

You can be creative with your squares, have fun with different patterns and colors! The only restrictions are that the squares should measure 12cm x 12cm and only use yarns that are DK/8ply or thinner. This will prevent the garment from being too heavy.

If you are based in the UK, you can send your finished squares or garments to;

Knit for Peace,

Radius Works,

Back Lane,

London, NW3 1HL

If you are in the USA, you can find information about where you can send your knitted squares at Warm Up America.

You can find out more about the wonderful work Knit for Peace has done here.
