If you are isolated at home why not join us in making sure that something good comes out of the current situation? We are planning to keep ourselves busy by either knitting or sewing squares which will then be made into lap blankets or quilts for the residents of homes such as Hunters Down.Please use the following instructions for your squares. We chose three simple stitches for our knitted squares. In different colours they would make a cheerful blanket. In double knit yarn and with 4mm needles cast on 40 stitches Centipede Stitch Knit four rows Row 1 knit Row 2 knit 6, purl1 knit 2 .*purl 4, knit 2 .repeat from* to last 7 stitches.purl 1 knit 6 Repeat rows 1 and 2 five times Row 13 knit Row 14 knit 6, purl 4”knit2 purl 4.repeat from* to last 6 stitches.
