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
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
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
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.

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
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
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!
