Chain Reaction Afghan Project Information

Welcome to the Chain Reaction Afghan Project, a celebration of collaboration! We created an afghan made up of squares created by your favorite crochet designers, combined with squares designed by you! You can see our contest rules page for more information. The whole afghan was assembled and shown in the Summer 2011 issue. The completed afghan will be auctioned for charity.

But our afghan is just the start of the Chain Reaction. You can carry it forward by making your own afghans for donation. For every afghan you donate, alone or as a group, we will donate $5 to Warm Up America (for up to a total of 500 afghans). Every afghan must feature squares from the Chain Reaction Afghan Project. All other choices are your own: the yarn, the number of people who participate, the size of the afghan. When you are done, send an email to us that includes a picture of the afghan, the name of the group you donated it to and why, and information about the crocheters who made the afghan. Please put Chain Reaction Afghan Project in the subject line and send to

Now, those twenty square designs have been collected together into one eBook! Plus, you will get the instructions for creating the final afghan.
