Youth Bags 2020 - 2021

Youth Bags

For our newer members, every second year we make up 50 cotton bags of items we hope are useful to disadvantaged youth in our community.  Early in December 2021 we will fill them and deliver them to Chilliwack Community Services Youth Services and the Cyrus Centre. The bags are approximately 16 inches by 18 inches with a drawstring fastening. The numbers in the chart to the side indicates what we hope to collect over the year. Below is a toque pattern if you are a knitter and would like to help out..

9.5 inches / 24 cm.

Round 2: K2 P1

Round 3: K2tog, P1 to end of round. 48 stitches remain.
