The World’s Biggest Knit/Crochet Stocking
The World’s Biggest Knit/Crochet Stocking is a joint effort of Caron and Children of Fallen Patriots (Fallen Patriots). Over the past year people from across the United States, Canada and even Ireland have donated their time in making 36”x36” squares to help create the stocking. People were encouraged to create their squares out of Caron United yarn, and Fallen Patriots receives 15¢ of the proceeds from each ball of Caron United that is sold.
Fallen Patriots provides college scholarships and educational counseling to military children who have lost a parent in the line of duty. The goal of Fallen Patriots is to ensure that EVERY such child receives ALL necessary college funding. 100% of the money raised is given to the children.
After this event Caron will be disassembling the stocking, cleaning the blankets and donating them to those in need.
