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.
