THE BLANKET PATTERN: THIS IS THE SQUARE TO BE USED IN THE 9000 SQUARE BLANKET

The blanket project, launched by a group in Lindsay,Ontario, Canada, centres around the creation of square-foot knitted or crocheted pieces that will all be pieced together. The group hopes to gather 10,000 squares from crafters across the country — each square representing someone who died as a result of COVID-19.
