Hi Debbie, the old cuddles were much smaller so I used 3 row of 3 squares = 9 squares. Sorry for the confusion ! I'm making a cuddle right now in the new larger size and using single crochet. I think if you make the squares in single crochet the cuddle will be nice and warm. I'm using a 6.00mm (US J) hook and bulky yarn.
Tunisian crochet uses a long crochet hook. It's a cross between knitting and crocheting. Here's a youtube video that explains how to do it. You would need a special hook for this.
Hi Debbie, I don't live quite as far north as Pickle Lake though my parents did live on Moose Factory Island for a while when Dad worked for Northern Affairs ( I was already working so didn't live there just visited )
I'm in Sault Ste. Marie, just across the river from Michigan. We travel in the states but I haven't been to Ohio.
Have you found any crocheters in your area ? I'm busy making squares with donated yarn. A friend asks everyone she knows for yarn for KAS so every once in a while she has a "few" boxes for me !

Welcome to the forum ! Glad you finally made it !! I also crochet but unfortunately live in northern Ontario Canada so it would be a bit of a hike to get together :-( But we can talk on the forum :-) I'm always willing to chat about crocheting.
There are probably a few people from Ohio that will respond to your request from the US group.
Just noticed that your blog is not appearing in public Debbie. If you click on your page then Blog Post, further down the page is a privacy statement if you click the "Everyone' statement then more members will get to see it. Good to see you joined the USA Group - they're a lovely bunch!
This item will allow Knit-a-Square to pay our wonderful co-team workers – the Gogos (grandmothers) – to sew the squares received from across the globe into blankets for the children. $5 US will pay for 4 blankets to be stitched together.

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
