Can you help me find patterns?

.

I am wondering if any knitters or crocheters out there would like to volunteer a few hours searching on Ravelry and via Google to help me locate patterns to send out with donated yarn in knitters and crocheters re-stash packs. Knowing that most people in affected areas do not have books or access to the internet we need patterns to go with the yarn.

I am only looking for FREE patterns as we absolutely do not want to break copyright - unless a designer willingly donates reproduction rights to us. We need projects for all different yarn weights (4ply, 8ply, 10 ply, 12 ply) and amounts (single skein projects, 2-3 ball projects, 4-5 ball projects etc), things for kids, teens, adults, men and women, clothing, toys, homewares, anything.

If you can help out, let me know soozs[dot]com[at]gmail[dot]com

Many of the pattern companies like Lion, Berroco, Interweave all have free patterns on their web sites.

As long as the patterns aren't sold they can be used. Perhaps the yarn companies themselves would donate some yarn for your cause.

May you have all the support and sympathy that you all need and deserve.
