Wrap With Love
 
 
We're still participating in the Wrap with Love program. Keen knitters and crocheters can drop their knitted and crocheted squares into any of our 3 libraries, to help provide more than 30,000 people with love and warmth, in Australia and around the world.
A Wrap With Love personal wrap comprises 28 squares, 25 cm x 25 cm (10 inches x 10 inches) sewn together in 4 rows by 7 rows to size 100cm x 175cm (40 inches x 70 inches) completed. A Wrap can be knitted, crocheted, machine knitted or woven , with wool, acrylic or lined patchwork.
A 25 cm (10 inch) square uses approximately 50g of 8 ply wool.
Knitting pattern – use size 8 (4mm) needles and 8 ply yarn. (A combination equivalent to 8 ply is also acceptable). Cast on 50-55 stiches and knit each row in plain stitch. Please do not use stocking stitch as this curls and is not easy to sew with other squares.
Some people just knit the squares, some knit and sew together and some just sew together, so drop off whatever you do to us and we can send them to Wrap With Love who will finish them off.
If you’d like to have a physical copy of the pattern, drop into the library and pick it up.
If you're unable to drop your squares into the Library, or need some 8 ply wool to continue making the squares, please contact us on 6648 4900 or email us to make alternative arrangements.
