Our Mission

At GARAS (Gloucestershire Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers) we offer support to those seeking asylum in Gloucestershire, welcoming them when they arrive, advocating for them in their daily struggles, supporting them if they face being sent back as well as helping them adjust to their long term future if they are recognised as refugees.

Knitathon

You are welcome to attend a Knitathon on 14th November 2015 10am-3pm St Edwards Church Stow in aid of GARAS.

The pattern for the scarf

You will need 1 pair of 5mm knitting needles (old size 6) and balls of aran-weight knitting wool – different colours if you like.  (NB The majority of our clients are men, so you may like to choose masculine colours for the wool.)

To make the scarf in stocking stitch:
Cast on 50 stitches.  Row 1: K50. Row 2: P50
Continue alternating K and P rows until the garment measures ten inches.  Change to the second colour and continue until you have ten inches of this colour.  Continue in alternating ten-inch blocks of colour until the scarf measures about 5 feet.  Cast off.

To make the scarf in garter stitch:
Cast on 50 stitches.
Row 1 onwards: K50
When the garment measures ten inches, change to the second colour.  Continue in alternating ten-inch blocks of colour until the scarf measures about 5 feet. Cast off.
THANK YOU AND HAPPY KNITTING!
