I prefer crochet for the white Squares, but if you can only knit
Please use a very WHITE yarn -- not off-white.
This blanket is meant to make a visual impact. It can do so if the squares are consistent. As tempting as it is to want to be more creative, save those for personal gifts. Also, those plain stitches and solid colors make us focus on the Stitches and the purpose of honoring the NeverBorn and not creating a needlework masterpiece.
Please use the exact number of stitches and rows that are below:
US #8 knitting needles
When you finish a square it should measure about 15” x 15” maybe a bit more.
If you will be able to do more, let me know how many you can do. I’m trying to keep track of the pledges to complete a certain number of squares.
Please contact me when the first one is done, but wait to mail multiples together. firstname.lastname@example.org
When you are finished with all the squares, mail them to: Memorial Blanket, 1132 Kissinger Ave, Tontitown, AR 72762
