Helpers required to  knit blankets for Sands Memory Boxes

Sadly demand for our Always Loved, Never Forgotten Memory Boxes remains constant and our stock of hand knitted blankets needs to be maintained.  The blankets are a very special part of the box as each is handmade and we have been told how much comfort they bring to parents after the death of their baby.  The pattern is very simple and can be knitted with or without the lace edging.  Please note that for a number of reasons we only use white blankets.  If you would like to knit for Sands please find the pattern below.

For further information or to be emailed/posted a copy of the pattern please contact Julie on 0203 598 1921 or

Please send the finished blankets to Sands Memory Boxes, C/O PO Box 234, Boston, PE21 1EU
