Red Squares

I've taken a little break from my Fair Isle knitting to make some red squares.

The squares are to be made into a blanket as part of an illness awareness project on Ravelry.  A different illness is featured each month and this month it is stroke awareness.  My daughter, Grace, is hosting the month and she is responsible for collecting the squares and making them into blankets.

The squares have to be red (apparently this is the colour for stroke awareness) and they must be 6 inches square and made from acrylic yarn and can be either knitted or crocheted.

I'm hoping to make quite a few more squares this week.  It's fun planning different designs and it's a good way to try new patterns.

Full details of this project can be found on the "12 Months of Awareness" group page, on Ravelry, here.

I hope some of you will be able to help.  Grace can be contacted through Ravelry, her user name is Smiles-a-lot.  Thank you.


  1. Thank you, Mindy. I'm really enjoying choosing and making the different patterns.

  2. Love the squares! Looking forward to adding them into the blanket

    Also I'll be hosting Mental Health awareness month next month which is green squares.


Thank you for visiting Yellow Pink and Sparkly. I'd love to hear from you, so please feel free to leave a comment.
