I am with an organization full of agencies who work with the homeless. Any size, any color, any pattern will work. If you are very concerned about size, think "wrap". Take a blanket that you can wrap around your boy friend, husband or large son and duplicate the size.The thicker and heavier the better as many homeless are under bridges, near water and ice during winter, even though shelters are open in most places. If you want to make a less labor-intensive blanket, just knit without a pattern - make it the same front and back and use a yarn that is easily washable and wears tough. If you are creating blankets for shelters for the homeless, ask them what the optimum size is they want. Your skill and product are extremely needed. Thanks.
Forgot to say that a square works best, but you can use a blanket you already own in a rectangular shape as a pattern. Don't worry about it being perfect in size, thickness, or pattern. The homeless don't care. Bright colors work to lift their spirits.
