“The Seamen’s Church Institute invites you knit or crochet a garment to warm mariners’ hearts and bodies this winter.”
Christmas at Sea – The Seaman’s Church Institute
Christmas at Sea provides gifts to international mariners working at sea and mariners working on inland waterways in the United States. Any project made from a pattern published by the SCI
(Seaman’s Church Institute) is accepted. They prefer washable wool or wool-blends. Most patterns require worsted weight yarn. Please avoid light colored yarns and pastels. They request you do not send projects in the following colors: rose, pink and lavender. Embellishments such as pom-poms, tassels and fringe are not accepted because they present a safety hazard. You can send your finished projects to The Seamen’s Church Institute at the address provided HERE.
The patterns are available as PDFs and can be found at the bottom of this page: Christmas at Sea
Gifts are distributed during the winter months and created and collected year-round.
