We need your knitting and crocheting skills to help make these fabulous homemade gifts.
Join fellow knitters and crocheters to make handmade goodies for a great cause! Whether you're experienced or interested in learning, we hope you'll join us at a Handmade for the Homeless! Our goal is to contribute as many warm winter items as possible to distribute to the DC area homeless.
What Should I Bring?
Please bring your own needles/crochet hooks. All levels of knitters and crocheters are welcome. Don't know how to knit or crochet? We'll teach you!
If you are not already working on a warm winter item and are looking for a great project or just starting out, please bring:
- #8 or #10 knitting needles (circular or straight) or a size H crochet hook
- at least 6 oz of any color(s) "worsted weight" yarn
- Patterns (we'll share if you don't have one)
*Additional hat patterns using #17 needles or a size N crochet hook are also available.
If you have questions about this event please contact Sheryl at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you can't join us in person, join us in spirit by knitting or crocheting:
Gloves and Mittens
Socks or slippers
Other items to keep people warm and toasty in the cold winter months
Knitted and other donations can be brought to the 16th Street J. Contact Erica Steen at email@example.com to make arrangements. Thank you!
