Afghan Rectangle for Warm Up America!

This Month's Organization:

Warm Up America! a national non-profit that since 1992 has provided hand knitted and crocheted blankets, clothing and accessories made by volunteers across the country and donated to people in need.


Instructions can be found on the Warm Up America's website.

  • The 7″ by 9″ template was selected because it is a convenient size to form blankets of varying dimensions. We also needed uniformity of size to be able to join sections knitted and crocheted by different people across the country. That is why it is so helpful that sections sent in be as close to 7″ x 9″ as possible.
  • What yarn to use? A medium weight, machine washable and dryable acrylic yarn is the ideal yarn to use for WUA! blankets and accessories so completed items are easy to clean.

Project Type:

Crochet, Knitting.

Supplies You'll Need:

Yarn, crochet hook or knitting needles.

Deadline and Drop-off Instructions:

Drop-off your finished project off by December 31, 2020, during regular hours at any Greene County Public Library location. To ensure that your item remains clean during transit, please enclose it in a plastic zipper bag.
