AFGHAN/BLANKET LINKS

Community Service Projects

The members of The Greater St. Louis Knitters Guild make a variety of beautiful and creative knitted items that are distributed to people in our community through a number of organizations that recognize who can most benefit from the warm items. Many generous people donate yarn and needles for our projects. Members have access to a pamphlet of charity patterns when they join our guild.

We have links on our website to free charity knitting patterns here.  If you have any questions, please contact our Community Service VP at info@stlouisknittersguild.com please include "charity knitting" in your subject line.

Below are some links to free blanket and afghan patterns.  If you have any problems with website links not working, please email our webmaster at info@stlouisknittersguild.com .  Thanks!

Project Linus
The goal of Project Linus is to provide a "blanket of security" to children facing substantial distress in their lives. Washable yarn is knitted, crocheted, quilted, woven or sewn into blankets which are then distributed throughout the local community for children undergoing difficult situations, especially aiming toward pediatric cancer patients. Children come in all sizes, so we welcome all sizes of blankets.

SUGGESTED SIZES FOR BLANKETS/AFGHANS:

Preemie blanket: 15" x 18" to 24" x 24"

Newborn blankets" 25" x 30"

Toddler blankets: 35" x 40" to 45"

Child's blankets: 40" x 60"
