WUA Crochet and Knit Patterns

Featured crochet pattern image and linkFollowing are basic crochet and knit patterns for making individual Warm Up America! afghan sections.

tip Tip!

To crochet or knit "perfect" Warm Up America! sections, cut a 7" by 9" cardboard template. Use the template as a guide; it's easier to handle than a measuring tape and great for kids.

IMPORTANT SHIPPING INFO

When possible, we encourage Warm Up America! participants to work with family members, neighbors and friends to complete afghans and distribute them in their own community. When this is not possible, the Council will gladly accept sections, strips or completed afghans. We distribute the completed blankets to social service agencies that contact our office.
