This cosy project is perfect for beginners and for those of you stash-busters looking to make use of your leftover yarn!
We got together with our pals at Knit Aid to show you how to create a super simple, super cosy blanket from knitted squares. Knit Aid is an awesome social enterprise helping knitters help others in need. At the moment they are working particularly hard on getting lots of generous knitters from around the globe to send them knitted squares, which they then sew into blankets for refugees across Europe.
Do you live in / near London? Join our Knit Aid + WATG Valentine’s Day Knit in! We’ll be furiously knitting up lots of squares for donations, which will then be sewn up into blankets to be sent to refugees across Europe:
