For the Early Birds…. Chernobyl 2018!

We are already having wonderful folk asking about next year’s Chernobyl project and yes we are both DELIGHTED to say it will be going ahead!

This year we look like we are aiming for approx 115 blankets in 2018, but this may change. It is a good place to start with!

Here is a link to last year’s project if you wonder what this is about….

And pictures of the children here….

So early birds, this is the crafting info…

  • Yarn is Stylecraft Special DK – just this please, inc for any embellishments. 
  • Squares to be 12 inch ideally, or 6 inch if that is too much.
  • Knit and crochet equally welcome. Beginner or more experienced crafters also equally welcomed.
  • Please use a 4mm hook or needles. No blocking please, and please ensure you are knotting off very thoroughly when colour changing or finishing, leave a 6cm end and use a needle to sew it in.
  • We are asking folk to avoid using a magic ring (crochet) to start as find that these don’t seem to always stand up to the pressures of wash and wear.
  • Squares to be single colour, multi colour, textured, whatever you like, they will be wonderful, thank you.
  • Please no posting from the early birds until January!
  • If you’d like to make a whole blanket, please use these colours too, makes thing easier at the giving stage!
