Cancer Comfortghans

Generally, children enjoy blankets made from bright, bold, colors. When making blankets, please use the rainbow colors: Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo, and Violet.

The list below are the color numbers for Red Heart brand yarn, manufactured by Coats & Clark. You can use whatever brand yarn you wish, but please use solid colors--these are easiest for us to work into blankets.
