Ready for your group of friends: 18 panels of fleece fabric, 40x64" (sufficient to make nine blankets). Groups or individuals can easily sit around a card table and work together to cut and tie knots for each blanket. All you need are scissors. Simple instructions here.
These materials will make a great party activity for a birthday, a shower, a rosh hodesh group, a classroom. A fun activity for older children, families, and adults.
You can donate the finished products to a shelter near you or Project Linus, with chapters all over the U.S., will pick up blankets and distribute them to babies and children in need.
