Join fellow knitters and crocheters to make handmade goodies for a great cause! Our goal is to contribute as many warm winter items as possible to distribute to individuals experiencing homelessness in the DC area. All levels of knitters and crocheters are welcome. Don’t know how to knit or crochet? We’ll teach you!


What should I bring? Please bring your own needles/crochet hooks. If you are not already working on a warm winter item and are looking for a great project or just starting out, please bring #8 or #10 knitting needles (circular or straight) or a size H crochet hook. Don't forget the patterns you’re working on or want to start.


What do you supply? We provide lots of beautiful yarn, several patterns including hat patterns using #17 needles or a size N crochet hook, and experienced knitters and crocheters to teach anyone who would like to learn. If you can’t join us in person, join us in spirit by knitting or crocheting hats, scarves, gloves and mittens, socks or slippers, and other items to keep people warm during the cold winter months.


If you have any questions about this event, contact Chana at chanaengel@gmail.com.
