Q: What is it?
A: We’re attempting to make the World’s Biggest Stocking in Caron United yarn to support the Children of Fallen Patriots Foundation, a non-profit organization that provides college educations to military kids who have lost a parent in the line of duty. We’ll be accepting donated 3 ft. x 3 ft. knit and crochet blankets, and those blankets will be sewn together to create the stocking.

Grab your Caron United yarn, download one of our free blanket patterns from the Stocking Tracker, and get stitching! Once you’re all done making your 3 ft. x 3 ft. knit or crochet blanket, send it to us in the mail and it’ll become part of the World’s Biggest Stocking.

    When is the reveal?

  2. Hi where can we see pictures of the completed stocking?

  3. At the time I received ny yarn I began at once and about half way through I realized I was not knitting to YOUR GAUGE and ripped out and started over and got interrupted. I could NOT FIND THE DATE OF SUBMISSION UNTIL A WEEK AGO — TOO LATE FOR ME!! Will you do this again next year? It is so worthwhile . . . can I knit it ahead now or will you change everything and invalidate what I do. Please answer me as I tried contacting you before and it came back. I AM VERY FRUSTRATED AND I REALLY WANT TO DO THIS! Judith

  4. I am working on a square is there a cut off
    Time to send it in?

  5. What if you are not on face book?
