2021 Blanket Project!
One of the positives to come from the 2020 lockdown here in Devon was the incredible sense of community ...both in the immediate locality, but also online. This got us thinking...how about a joint community project, one that could see us through the summer when life may still be a bit restricted. Then we got thinking about our (slightly embarrasing) enormous yarn stashes... and hey presto!...the BLANKET PROJECT was born. Since then we have had to cancel last year's show, but we will be running the blanket project for 2021, so if you have started knitting blanket squares, please do continue.
So...what is the Blanket Project?
We're asking you to knit, crochet, weave or felt 6 inch squares in DK (double knitting) yarn which we will then join together to make 3 amazing blankets to raffle during the show for local charities.
Some fantastic knitting and crochet designers have donated the patterns
for you to use for your squares, or you can make up your own.
The important things to remember are:
Your squares must be 6 " square blocked.
Please use natural fibres only
Use DK yarn or equivalent (eg. 2 strands of 4-ply)
So far we have these fantastic patterns to choose from, and there's more coming soon:
