Little Squares for Little Sprouts

Help us keep vulnerable babies safe and warm - one square at a time!

You can help to ensure that every Little Sprouts box has a wonderful, safe baby blanket by creating peggy squares, grannie squares or charm squares for baby blankets OR by donating wool or fabric.

All yarn needs to be 100% natural (wool, bamboo etc) and all fabric needs to be 100% cotton. This is very important to ensure safe sleeping.

How it Works

Simply knit, crochet or cut as many peggy squares, grannie squares or charm squares as you can and drop them to us or send them to us!

Our wonderful Craft Angels will turn them into amazing blankets for babies in real need!  They will all be given away for free to babies via our fantastic Charity Partners.
