Knit for Peace invites you to take part in our Keep Britain Warm campaign!
We are asking people to knit or crochet squares and make them up into dressing gowns as a warm alternative to the usual blankets.
This project is a great opportunity for knitting groups to get together and to create something beautiful from scratch. Why not start up a group and each knit a square which can be sewn or crocheted together? There may be one person who would like to crochet a border around the edges to bring the whole project together. For those fast knitters perhaps you may wish to take on this project yourselves.
To help you create these dressing gowns please find our pattern example here.
We also need: gloves (fingerless or ordinary), scarves, ponchos, blankets, jumpers, shawls and cardigans.
Please help us spread the word. Follow Knit for Peace online and subscribe to our newsletter. Send your completed dressing gowns or squares to Knit for Peace, Radius Works, Back Lane, London, NW3 1HL.
