All the World's a Square
BY BERND KESTLER
@ VOL 102
ON APR 24, 2013
The Granny Square project is an initiative asking crocheters from around the world to crochet and send one or more "Granny Square" motifs to Japan to make the world’s largest ‘Granny Square Blanket’. Bernd needs at least 7,150 squares of 20 x 20 cm. Once completed, the blanket will be submitted to Guinness World Records. But the best is that, after, the blanket will be divided back into regular size afghans and donated to temporary housing facilities in Tohoku, Japan, to support victims of the March 2011 earthquake.
You'll find more info at the "Knit for Japan" website.
