This project has been added to your afghan patterns.

AllFreeCrochetAfghanPatterns is partnering with Project Linus and Lorna's Laces to host a Security Blankets Charity Drive for sick and traumatized children in need of warmth and comfort.
From November 16 to December 17, 2018, we will be collecting your beautiful blankets to donate to Project Linus.
Children find solace in snuggling blankets, especially those handmade with care and compassion. And kids who have been through an illness or other traumatic experience are extra in need of comfort. So become a "Blanketeer" this holiday season and nourish the little heart of a grateful child with your handmade security blanket!

PLUS, when we receive your blanket, you’ll be entered to win a stellar hand-dyed yarn bundle from Lorna’s Laces!
