My grandmother and I are working on some rectangles for this, I think it's a brilliant idea!! She's bragging that she's already got about 10 done so far. It's a great way to practice perfecting your tension! As a novice knitter, I need all the practice I can get!

Trying Out New Stitches
If you are interested in trying out new stitches and helping others.... this is a great project for you!!!

The 6"x9" acrylic rectangles can be made in almost ANY stitch!!!
Thought you would like to see how that cable looks but didn't want to do a swatch? How about that neat triangle pattern?

Give it a try
and then donate the 6"x9" rectangle
to
help thank those wounded in service to our country!!!!

The only stitches that do not work well are ribbing and very lacy stitches. Let your imagination fly!!!

Thank you so much for this info! I am new to this site (this is my very first post!) There is no one more deserving than our military heroes! Though I do not have a family member in the service, I am active in my local VFW and have been doing a bit of volunteering for our local Blue Star Mother's chapter. Though I am not a very experienced knitter (working on it!) I have just created a pattern to make a BSM square - haven't started on it yet (need to finish a blanket for an upcoming baby shower first ) but am excited to try it out! I will DEFINITELY do up some squares for this worthy cause - GREAT take along knitting!
