Festival of Trees Christmas appeal

Christmas tree

Here at the St Paul’s Centre, we're working alongside St Paul’s Church to produce a Festival of Trees across the weekend of the 16/17th December.

We have decided to make a large knitted / crochet tree and are asking for your support as we require 650 green knitted or crochet 6 inch squares for the tree.

To make squares, it is suggested using double knitting wool and casting on 32-35 stitches using size eight (4mm) needles. Everyone has a different tension so this is just a guide.

Please finish one of the ends of the square in to the square but leave one long end so we can attach it to the tree. You can use any shade of green for these squares as they will be mixed up when attached.

After the event, the squares will then be turned into blankets or muffs and donated. If you are not able to knit, but would like to support, donations of green wool would be welcome.

If you require any further information, please email info@stpaulscentrespennymoor.org.uk or call 01388 813404.
