Late last year, I heard of a charity, called Project Night Night, thru a twitter post from a fellow crafter. This charity put together totes of security blankets, books, and stuffed animals to be given to kids that had the misfortune of living in shelters or orphanages. I loved the idea of giving kids a little something to hang on to. So, I decided to make a blanket to donate it to such a worthy cause. This blanket is a very simple design of double crochets. 10 rows of dc for each colored section. I think it could have used another colored section, but I ran out of yarn. :( I finished it up with a simgle crochet all the way around. I didn't get to make a tutorial on this, but I thought I'd share the blanket anyway as well as spread the word about the charity.
If you want to help out, but do not crochet, you can sponsor a package, or even donate giftcards that have only a few bucks left.
