KOGO ~ Knit One Give One

KOGO is made up of a group of wonderful volunteer knitters and crocheters based in Melbourne, who make blankets, hats, scarves, toys and lots lots more for those in need.

A friend of mine has knitted for KOGO for years, and it’s often been on my “To Do List” to make something, but I never quite got around to it.Β  But then another group I belong to suggested making a Granny-Square-A-Day, then sewing them into blankets for KOGO.

So, I’m getting started….

This is based on a blanket I’ve been admiring on Purl Bee for ages. It’s called Bear’s Rainbow Blanket, and it’s so gorgeous.

I’m using up leftovers from my pink stash, so hopefully a little baby girl somewhere will like this πŸ™‚

  1. I love the idea of a granny a day – so doable. And these look really lovely. I love the way you have photographed these. I still have to master taking great photos of my crochet.

    • Thanks very much Mississhippi! Photography was actually my first love before I discovered crochet – now I love crochet way better πŸ˜€ And yes, one square a day makes it seem much more doable. x

  2. What an awesome idea!! I knit and crochet hats for the cancer center at our local hospital. It always feels good to help others out in time of need! I love your squares!!

    • Thanks Lisa! I’ve never actually crochetted a hat, but keep meaning to give it a go. I think it’s lovely that you make and donate like that – I’m sure people appreciate it. x

    • Thankyou! Yes, pink is definitely my favourite colour. I don’t have any children, but I have three nephews – I keep hoping for someone to have a little girl so I can make them girly things, but I’ve just about given up!

  3. I love your squares ,,,that blanket has been on my ‘must do’ list for awhile. You are so lucky to have found some nice groups to join…not much on the Gold Coast. Its been so hot here too that I havent touched my crochet for a few weeks…I think I need to find a summer, cotton project xx
