Blanket squares for Africa

March 8 - June 8

To show solidarity with another Agency dedicated to our Patron Saint we lend a hand to the St Nicholas Centre which gives basic food and shelter to orphaned and abandoned young people in Nakaru, Kenya. The Diocese of Nakuru is also ‘twinned’ with Chichester. Please can you help us with ourlatest project?

Blanket Squares for Africa?

Yes, because at night the temperatures drop and the children and staff at the Centre have no blankets on their beds! So please find your No.8 knitting needles, find those oddments of double knitting wool and follow;

Cast on 61 stitches;

Row 1 knit straight across

Row 2 knit 29 stitches; knit 3 tog. knit to end

Repeat these 2 rows till only 1 stitch remains

Knit I and cast off. Sit back & admire your work!

No needles or wool? We can provide both, just shout. Happy to receive any spare wool ;even happier to receive offers to either crochet or sew the squares together . Spread the word; the more hands to the wheel, the sooner these young people can sleep in comfort!
