Comic Con Geurilla Yarn Bombing

I am starting squares soon!! I have a couple of projects already on a time deadline so it may be a week or two but I am so doing this. I think I will dedicate one skein of at least one color. How many squares do you think I can get out of a Super Saver Red Heart skein? We’ll see!!


I haven’t finished making up the advertisements to go with the Comic Con project, however the ball needs to get moving! I will need 2,700 squares and ANYONE/SKILL level can help. I need 450 squares in each of the colors listed below. I chose a specific brand and colors for this project to keep it all cohesive. Who doesn’t have a skein of Red Heart laying around, right?


RED: Hot Red ID# 0390 (Super Saver)

YELLOW: Bright Yellow ID# 0324 (Super Saver)

ORANGE: Pumpkin ID# 0254 (Super Saver)
