Knit n’ Crochet Club

As the Spring 2016 semester wound to an end, the Albert Dorman Honors College’s new Knit n’ Crochet club prepared to donate their projects.  The service-based club strives to provide comfort to those in need through homemade knit and crocheted items.  Throughout the semester, members worked during meetings and in their free time to craft projects ranging from scarves to hats.

Knit Hats

This past semester, 53 students knit and crocheted hats to donate to cancer patients at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center.  Prior to that, members also donated their projects to the Salvation Army.  Depending on the speed of the knitter or crocheter, a project could take anywhere from 3 to 10 hours.

All students are invited to join!  Prior experience is not required as members are taught how to knit or crochet.  Last semester, the club met during Wednesday and Friday common hours.  Information for the Fall 2016 semester will be announced at the start of the fall semester.
