I am so excited to announce that in the month of October, Hortense from Knitting With Chopsticks and I will be hosting the Charity Cozy Fall Makealong! Both of us have personal stories that led us to host this event to create awareness and to raise some funds for the charity Cure Childhood Cancer.

How the Charity Cozy Fall MAL will work:

Each weekday from Oct. 4th to the 29th, we will be sharing free square patterns (one knit and one crochet square) from different designers. Make sure to come to this post and check back each day to see the squares of the day below under the “FREE Crochet Square Patterns” and “FREE Knit Square Patterns” headings.

The blanket that you’ll be making will be a truly special one. All the squares can be donated to a charity from the list provided. That’s not all, you will have the opportunity to donate to Cure Childhood Cancer by purchasing a complete bundle of all the squares at a discounted price. Fifty percent of proceeds from each bundle sale will be donated to Cure Childhood Cancer.

Cure Childhood Cancer’s mission is to help fund research for childhood cancer and support the kids and their families going through these tough times. From meals and counseling to financial assistance, CURE is committed to walking alongside families throughout their cancer journey. You can find more information over on their website here.

  1. How do I access the $6.00 discount when buying both the knit and crochet pattern bundles? It doesn’t seem to recognize that I am trying to purchase both via separate order forms.

    1. Hey Lynne, sorry I’m seeing this a little late. You could contact Hortense to find out how to resolve this issue since she set up the bundles, you can email her at [email protected]. Thanks for your support!
