Knit a Square - from LION Yarn

I have started knitting a few squares, but after I finish my shrug, I will be working on these more. It is great practice to do some fun cable knitting to make these squares!

Knit-a-Square asks that volunteers knit or crochet 8x8 inch (20x20 cm) squares and send it along with 3 yards (2 m) of coordinating yarn for sewing squares together. They ask for warm, wooly yarns in bright colors to stimulate the children. We recommend Wool-Ease or Lion Wool, which come in bright colors that are great for kids.

Felted squares are also welcome and can be made from the Lion Wool. Knit-a-Square also welcomes wool scraps for stitching up squares and finishing off blankets.

For more specific instructions and to learn more about Knit-a-Square, please visit Click here to find out how to start your own Square Circle group and contribute squares to this organization.

Squares can be mailed directly to:
