#TogetherWeCrochet Blocks for Warm Up America!

The WeCrochet team has been using up our leftover yarn and making blocks for Warm Up America. If you’ve been following along with our blog and our emails, you’ve probably noticed that we are working to create afghan projects or 7×9″ squares to go to those in need in our communities. #TogetherWeCrochet to keep us creating and collaborating!

The Warm Up America offices are temporarily closed. For now, hold onto your blocks and we’ll be ready to send in a lovely box of blocks when they reopen.

Stacey, Knitting Outreach Coordinator

5 rectangles of crochet in the granny stitch in a range of blue and white colors

Stacey has been using the Granny stitch (3 double crochet, and a chain) to create her 7×9″ blocks for Warm Up America! We love her blue color palette!

Kerry, Crochet Outreach Coordinator

A collection of crochet rectangles spread out on the table in 14 different colors

Kerry has discovered if you get the gauge JUST right, you have just enough yarn in a Brava mini 25g skein to make a 7×9″ block. She has committed to working her way through an entire Brava Mini-Pack! That’s 24 blocks going to Warm Up America! Go, Kerry, Go!!!!

Kerry’s Block Pattern:
Yarn: Brava Worsted (will work with a 25g ball from mini-packs)
Hook: H (5.0 mm), or size needed to obtain gauge
Gauge: 14 sts and 12 rows = 4″ in HDC

Ch 26
Row 1: HDC in 2nd ch from hook, HDC in each ch across, turn. 24 HCD.
Row 2: Ch 2, HDC across, turn. 
Rep Row 2 until block measures 9 inches long, cut, and fasten off.

3 yellow rectangles of crochet in Tunisian simple stitch and treble crochet stitch

Sarah took advantage of the opportunity to make small blocks and learn a new skill! Check out this awesome block from Sarah in Tunisian Simple Stitch!

Heather, Crochet Marketing Coordinator

A rectangle of crochet in gray and mint next to a cute tape measure, owl-themed scissors, and crochet hook

Heather created an awesome mix and match block out of bulky yarn so it went fast! This is a great way to use up any yarn leftovers you have around the house!

Sara, Crochet Brand Director

Six crochet rectangles in varying colors and patterns, one with a purple heart, in front of a llama-shaped planter filled with crochet hooks.

Sara’s been trying out different stitches, patterns, and techniques for a few of her blocks. So far the intarsia crochet heart (color chart is in WeCrochet Magazine, Issue 2) is the favorite!

    Are we seeing the blocks together?

    Hi Kim! You do not need to sew the blocks together. Hold onto them until the Warm Up America offices reopen, then you can send the individual blocks to their offices (just weave in the ends). Thank you!
