Here at Country Homes & Interiors magazine, we're launching our first ever online craft club to teach people how to crochet - and raise money for Mencap at the same time. The aim is to get as many of you as possible crocheting and donating 'Granny Squares'. These will then be designed into gorgeous accessories and auctioned for Mencap.

To make your Granny Squares as lovely as possible we have joined forces with crochet experts and wool yarn retailer Rowan. It has created two exclusive Granny Square patterns using 100% wool in spring colourways and provided a 'How to crochet' guide for us. Just download the really easy to use instructions and start crocheting.

Please send your donated crochet squares to Country Homes & Interiors, IPC Media, A Time Warner Company, Blue Fin Building, 110 Southwark Street, London, SE1 0SU.
