KNIT OR CROCHET SQUARES FOR GOG
If you would like to contribute squares to GoG, we would prefer squares that are made from 8 ply yarn and are 15cm x 15cm square (approx 6inches). These can be either crocheted or knitted. If crocheting squares, continue crocheting a ‘granny square’ until the size reaches 15cm. If you are knitting squares, the number of stitches and rows varies, but generally for 8 ply yarn, you would be required to cast on 44 stitches and knit 60 rows.
KNIT OR CROCHET A BLANKET FOR GOG
If you would like to crochet or knit a blanket/rug for GOG, our preferred size is approx 1m x 1.2m, however we do accept 1m x 1m square and 1.2m x 1.2m square. We sometimes have requests for larger blankets, so if you prefer to make larger rugs please let us know.
CROCHET FOOTY BLANKETS
Footy team coloured blankets and beanies are very popular among men and women, young and old and so GOG often puts calls out to it’s members for team colours. We are always after colours for NRL, AFL, Rugby Union, Soccer, Basketball teams, etc. Here are a sample of previous blankets below.
‘GOODIE DOLLS’ PATTERN
Please let me know if you have any issues with the pattern or notice any glaring mistakes. Many Thanks!
This is a simple but very effective slipper pattern that is quick and easy to make for beginners and advanced crocheters alike. Have fun with this by adding bows, flowers, tassels or even pompoms as I did! Slippers in sizes suitable for men and women are always appreciated!
Many thanks to Gordana from Wool Story for sharing the video and pattern!
The following is the child size pattern for the Mobius Scarf that has been very popular with members as well as patients!
We have used Anneke Wiese‘s pattern as inspiration. She has an awesome tutorial here https://www.ravelry.com/…/library/strawberry-twisty-cowl
To make it work for our purposes in ICU, chain about 200 (depending on wool thickness) so you end up with 100DC & 100 chain spaces.
I recommend doing your chain on a hook much larger than the one you use for the shawl.
To give you an idea: I work my chain on 8mm hook, crochet with 5mm hook for the pattern.
The following is a PDF of the instructions on how to do the twist!! 🙂
EASY CROCHET RIBBED BEANIE!
The following videos make a crochet beanie that looks amazingly like a a knitted ribbed beanie!
The first is very simple pattern that requires no decreasing at the crown. The second has decreasing stitches. They are both very quick and easy to make.
Special thanks to Jonna Martinez and Bethintx1 for sharing these great videos on Youtube!
This is part one of three videos. Part 2 and 3 should automatically play after part 1.
SIMPLE FINGERLESS GLOVES!
These gloves are perfect for keeping hands/arms warm while also keeping cannulas covered. This helps to ease distress in patients with Dementia or Altzheimers.
Elizabeth Stitch Fingerless Gloves
These Elizabeth Stitch Fingerless gloves are similar to the above pattern, but have an added pretty Elizabeth stitch pattern over the hand. They are quick and simple to make and make great cannula covers! The cuff on the one pictured below is 40 stitches long to get it elbow length. Thank you to Jamey of Dabbles & Babbles for making them free and available and Amanda for sharing her version of the pattern with us.
