Give the Gift of Education…By Crocheting!
Education is an invaluable gift, and one that many people take for granted far too often. It's also, unfortunately, something that may be difficult to attain for some individuals as a result of rising tuition costs. How can kids with dreams pursue their passions if they can't afford an education?
That's why Caron United has partnered with the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation to help provide college educations for children who have lost a parent in the line of duty-and they need the help of crocheters like you! The two organizations have teamed up to create the World's Largest Stocking, one crocheted square at a time. For every skein of Caron United yarn you purchase to help crochet the stocking, fifteen cents will be put towards the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation's college fund.
How it works:
1. We've been releasing a new stocking pattern every month to keep you occupied until the holiday season! Check out the latest here, then get to work. (Find other patterns by searching for "Caron United pattern")
2. Download the pattern instructions and purchase your Caron United yarn! Shop at Jo-Ann Fabrics, Michael's, Walmart, or www.yarnspirations.com/CaronUnited to buy.
3. Get started on your 3-by-3-foot blanket square, and have fun!
4. Mail your finished blanket square to:

Not only will you have a blast helping break a world record, but you'll also feel good about crocheting for a great cause!
