KnitPro is excited to announce its first ever knit and crochet along in aid of global charity Knit For Peace, called the KnitPro Designer-along.

KnitPro has worked with a number of high profile designers and magazine editors who have created 12 gorgeous blanket squares.  They include Debbie Bliss, Arne and Carlos, Erika Knight, Jane Crowfoot, Lena Fedotova, Debbie Abrahams, Simply Knitting, Simply Crochet, Crochet Now, Inside Crochet and Let’s Knit.

Each week for six weeks one crochet and one knit design will be released.  The patterns will be downloadable from the Knit For Peace website in return for a donation of £1 – all of which will go to the charity.  Each launch will feature a giveaway of products from the new KnitPro collection.

At the end of the six weeks KnitPro will also be releasing all the designs in an e-book with ideas for blanket layouts using the squares and instructions for different borders.

“Knit For Peace is an amazing organisation that works with groups of women in countries all over the world including India, where our factory is based,” explains Shirish Jain, Vice President of Marketing at KnitPro. “We wanted to create a flexible knit and crochet along to appeal to as many people as possible and we are delighted that so many well-known names have shared our vision for helping this charity.”

“ We are very excited about this project with KnitPro and are really looking forward to seeing all the designs as they come out. I am planning to Knit-along and make a blanket for my grandson!” Dame Hilary Blume, Director, Knit for Peace

The KnitPro Designer-along will launch on 26th September 2016 and run until the end of October.
