A fun charity makealong for Cure Childhood Cancer featuring 20 free crochet square patterns 20 free Tunisian crochet square patterns, and 20 free knitting square patterns.
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. 3rd to the 28th, we will be sharing free square patterns (one knit, one crochet, and one Tunisian crochet square) from different designers. Make sure to come to this post and check back each day to see the crochet squares of the day below under the heading FREE Crochet Square Patterns. Check out the FREE knitting squares of the day HERE and the FREE Tunisian crochet squares of the day HERE.
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. Thirty 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.
