And that’s not all. There’s still plenty of room in our charity window for more! Last year, we collected enough afghan blocks to make over 38 afghans — and there’s still time to beat last year’s record. Here’s how you can help:
- 7″ x 9″ afghan blocks. Please use machine washable yarn. Please make sure all ends are woven in, and the blocks measure 7″ x 9″.*
- All blocks must be dropped off in person** to Lion Brand Yarn Studio, 34 West 15th Street, New York, NY 10011
- Now until November 30th, 2011
- Click here for patterns on the Warm Up America! website or here for Lion Brand’s very own Warm Up America! afghan. You can also use LionBrand.com’s StitchFinder to pick out your favorite stitch and start making your own creation.
LBYS is offering 10% off all yarn, hooks, needles and supplies needed to make the afghan blocks. To get the discount, let us know at the register that you are knitting or crocheting for Warm Up America!
