Welcome to Project Linus of Charles County, MD

Our Mission

First, to provide love, a sense of security, warmth, and comfort to children who are seriously ill, traumatized, or otherwise in need through the gifts of new, handmade blankets and afghans, lovingly created by volunteer “Blanketeers.”

Second, to provide a rewarding and fun service opportunity for interested individuals and groups in local communities, for the benefit of children.

Knit & Crochet Along 2022

The fourth annual Project Linus Knit & Crochet Along registration is now open. Downloadable patterns and instructions will be divided into 8 weeks to create either a knitted or crocheted blanket. Much like the Mystery Quilt, you will receive a new "clue," or pattern segment, each week for 8 weeks beginning Saturday, March 5, 2022. The completed blanket is yours to keep or you can (as you know) donate it to Project Linus.

The cost is only $20 for either the crocheted or knitted pattern or you can sign up for both for $40. Please designate our Charles County, MD, Project Linus Chapter on your registration as the recipient of your $20 registration fee.

To register, visit https://www.projectlinus.org/knitcrochet/. Look forward to seeing your beautiful creations!
