Knit a Square of Hope – Knitting Warriors Wanted

In an effort to bring HOPE to people with mental health challenges or supporting someone’s wellbeing and their family and friends together, we can bring a little inspiration and hope.
The purpose of the T R C is to create a safe, inspirational space for everyone to belong, to tell their stories and bring love and kindness into our community. We need your help to raise funds to keep open and we need Knitting Warriors who can help us create blankets of hope.
This basic knitting pattern (plain squares) is great if you are learning to knit that uses the garter stitch.
If you already knit, feel free to use your own pattern variations such as moss stitch, stocking or other closely woven stitches.

What you need for this basic square knitting pattern
Light worsted yarn DK (UK 100 grams (3.5 oz) in any combination of colours
4.50mm needles or size needed for your tension
Yarn sewing needle

Knit a square knitting pattern instructions for an 8″ (20cm) square.
Cast on enough stitches to make 8” (20cm), which should be anywhere from 35 to 40 stitches.
Try to make your stitches neither too loose nor too tight to help ensure uniform squares. This may vary slightly depending on your tension.

Note: Check your gauge (tension) after 3 or 4 rows. This will save you some frustration if the square is too wide or not wide enough. Adjust accordingly by starting with more or less stitches.
Row 1: knit
Row 2: knit
Continue knitting rows 1 and 2 until your square is as long as it is wide.

To ensure your square is 8″ (20cm), either use a tape measure or form a triangle by folding one corner of your square over to meet the opposite corner as shown – if all sides are equal then you have a square!
Cast off/bind off. Leave a 20″ (50cm) tail (for sewing the squares together).
Sew in all other loose ends of yarn.
To create stripes in the square, wait until the end of a row, then change to a different coloured yarn.
You can do this as often as you like. Experiment with different colours to get interesting new looks.

The Five Ways to Wellbeing are simple actions to practice each day to maintain or improve our mental health and wellbeing. The New Economics Foundation developed the set of evidence-based actions in 2008. The project examined research from across the world on proven actions that can help us to feel good and function well.

  • Small improvements in wellbeing can increase our ability to lead a more fulfilling life.
  • Each action in the Five Ways to Wellbeing can make a positive difference to your life.
  • The Five Ways to Wellbeing are free and easy to incorporate into your life.
  • You are probably doing some of these actions already without being aware of it.
  • To get the most from the Five Ways to Wellbeing, try to combine all of them on a daily basis.
