Calling all knitters!

Born to Knit is back! Today is the official launch of the 2012 Born to Knit campaign.

We are very excited. To celebrate the success of the previous campaigns, we have decided to create borntoknit.com.au. A website dedicated to the Born to Knit cause. Explore this new Born to Knit site for more information, and get involved!

By 1st October 2012, we aim to have  6,500 blankets that will keep vulnerable children warm and help to save the lives of children. Donated blankets will be distributed to children through our programs in Australia and countries such as Cambodia and Laos.

To make this possible, we are calling all past and present supporters of the campaign to start knitting. We invite you to get involved in the campaign and help a child stay comfortably warm and protected this winter.  Your blanket will help to ward against pneumonia, one of the biggest killers of children under five in the developing world.

How to get involved:

– Start knitting!

– Purchase a Born to Knit Kit from our online store

– Make a donation by purchasing a virtual square

– Spread the word and tell your friends and family about Born to Knit

Happy knitting everyone 🙂

Warm Wishes,

The Born to Knit team @ Save the Children Australia

    It would be handy to have an idea of the best dimensions for the blanket squares. Maybe this info is on the website, but i haven’t managed to find it 😳

    Off and knitting – I don’t know how this fits with your method of sewing the squares together but the last two years as I knew I could knit complete blankets I knitted 4 strips of 4 squares – thus eliminating a lot of joining work. The four strips were just stitched together. I thought if people thought they could knit four squares – why not knit them as a continuous piece and save your volunteer sewers some time also. Thanks for this chance to feel we can help in some way. Jan
