Knit for Peace crocheted refugee blanket

april2015 019

A Granny Greens crafter moved back to the US and gave me two large granny squares unfinished. I took this one the teal centre and upscaled it to make a blanket approx 60″ square for a Syrian refugee. I’m sending it to Knit for Peace which is sending knitted and crocheted items before the arrival of winter to some of the large camps in Kurdistan where there are 1.8 million refugees. They are particularly in need of adult sized blankets. ‘We particularly need warm adult clothes, children’s cardigans and jumpers, baby teddies and jackets, bed socks, scarves, adult hats and of course large sized blankets. We have at the moment a lot of baby hats and baby blankets.’ So hold the baby blankets and hats… also needed are donations to offset the cost of transport to Kurdistan.
