This 7" x 9" block is worked in basic single and double crochet stitches, using knitting worsted weight yarn. I created it for an event in support of the Warm Up American! Project, an organization of volunteers who hand-craft afghans and other items for people who have lost their homes, fled abusive relationships, or are in hospices, shelters, hospitals, or nursing homes. Individuals make one block or several, then have "joining parties" in their communities to sew the blocks together, or send them to a central location to be joined with blocks from all over the US.
A finished Warm Up America! Afghan is made up of 49 blocks, 7 blocks wide by 9 blocks long. For more information about Warm Up America!, as well as several other simple block patterns, please see: http://www.warmupamerica.com
