Julie's Creative Lifestyle

Crocheting for Charity

Monday, May 4, 2015



Hello friends!  Many of you know that the crochet/knit group that I belong to at my church we crochet and knit all year long for our annual Fall and Christmas Fair we have each year.  I have belonged to this group for about 12 years and the sister that runs the group has organized us to knit and crochet squares for a charity called KasCare's Knitting For Charity Project, knit-a-square.   


We are all busy knitting and crocheting these squares that will eventually be made into blankets  to help keep a cold AIDS orphan warm.  The squares will then be collected and packed in a box and then sent to Africa.  Once the squares are sent off then they will make the squares into blankets.  To learn more about this charity you can click HERE

The photos of these squares are some of them I have already made.  I have crocheted about 5 so far and I'm still making more of them.

For the size of the squares I crocheted I made them 8 inches x 8 inches using the half double crochet stitch.  To make the half double crochet stitch you can click HERE.


I'm happy to be crocheting these squares and I feel good to be involved doing this charity work.
