There will only be a US version this week.


Love to crochet or knit? Join our group Yarn Addicts for more fun swaps.


This week's swap is going to be a little different.

Your square this time should be made in a Valentine theme. Think shades of red, pink and white. Maybe some hearts. Or however you interpret Valentine's Day. It's senders choice but it should fit a Valentine theme.


Hello all! Let's make patchwork blankets <3 this will be a series of swaps where you will send and receive 12 inch squares and hopefully by participating in enough you will be able to stitch them all together to make a blanket <3


image You will make and send one 12 inch square. There are many patterns on Ravelry if you need ideas!

image Save the squares you get so you can join them into a blanket! (or pillowcases) there are a lot of different joining methods that can be looked up on YouTube if this is something new to you <3 remember to wash the squares before joining so any size discrepancies are known before joining!

image Squares are senders choice! Use any colors you wish, add whatever appliques or make it how you want! This also means that you can start on your square when you sign up :)

image Please be sure the yarn you use is in good condition. You want this to be a comfortable yarn for your recipient, so maybe using vintage red heart or the likes wouldn't be the best choice. No smoke smelling yarn!

image This is open to crochet and knit and would probably work best if everyone tried to use worsted (weight 4) acrylic yarn to make joining and washing easier and to avoid any wool allergies <3


If you end up finishing a blanket please post a link so we can all see!

I've started a group for all yarn crafters please check it out and join so I can get some swaps going!



I will angel if needed. Please contact your partner first and try to work things out. Be kind. Be patient. Be understanding. If you can not work things out, and you have rated your partner a 1, then message me.

If you have a question about this swap please send me a message as I don't always remember to check for comments.
