6" KNITTED UMC BLANKET SQUARES
Copyright Beverly A. Qualheim - 2014, 2016 - All Rights Reserved
 
  
25 ~ 6" squares are needed for each 30" blanket 5 sq X 5 sq to include with our UMC MINI-KITS
Size 8 US (5 mm) knitting needles
Scraps of 4 ply soft, worsted weight (10 ply in Europe) - in pastels or cheerful, bright colors please!
INo matter how many squares you can make and send, we will combine them with others and make some beautiful blankets!
Gauge: 4 sts = 1"   8 rows = 1"

UMC knit squares


Cast on 24 stitches 

(knit 2 rows and then measure to see if this is 6" across - if not, add to, or reduce number of stitches)
Rows 1- 48: Knit each row until square is 6".  (24 ridges)
Bind off and leave a 18" tail for us to sew them together.

These squares will be made into warm 30" stretchy blankets for babies born at UMC hospital in Vegas. Many babies born there do not have even a blanket, so we are making these as a gift of love to each of them from those of us with willing hearts and hands to help. Thank you!
