Millers Morning Tea

Join us in your favourite Milers store for our Morning Tea 7th of August.

We have partnered with Wrap with Love, an Australian charity that creates and distributes warm blankets to those that need it most. 
Since 1992, Wrap with Love has kept more than 414,000 people warm through the help of volunteers that knit or crochet squares that are later sewn into wraps.

Will you help us to wrap even more people in Australia & around the World?

Join us for our Morning Tea and bring your own knitted square to be sewn into a warm blanket by Wrap with Love. We will be receiving squares for the month of August.

INSTRUCTIONS FOR MAKING SQUARES
Squares for Wraps are to measure 25cm x 25cm (10 inches x 10 inches).

Knitted Squares
To knit a 25cm x 25cm square use No.8 (4mm) needles with 8 ply yarn, cast on 50-55 stitches, and knit each row plain (ie garter stitch).

Note
Test your tension to measure 10 inches.

Do Not Knit Stocking stitch
Do not knit one row plain, one row purl (ie stocking stitch) as your square will curl up.

No Knots
Start each ball of yarn at the beginning of a row and sew in ends. Do not cut ends off short as your square will unravel. When starting or finishing a square, sew in all ends.

Crochet squares
Crochet squares to measure 25cm x 25 cm as for knitted squares – any pattern will do. Some people crochet the whole Wrap in one piece.
