Welcome to our KAS community of over 10,000, who lovingly send 8” squares to make hand-made blankets for the South African AIDS orphans.
- a knit pattern by Zanny Lovemore Blew (Australia)
The square designed by Ronda’s sister, Zanny, is an easy pattern to knit. It uses simple knit and purl stitches and is a great beginner’s stitch.

A few months back we decided we needed to take some updated photos for the purpose of marketing Knit-A-Square. As we are mindful of not to be seen to exploit these orphaned and vulnerable children while promoting the purpose of KAS, we approached Julia at Kido’s and asked her whether she could obtain written and signed permission from the guardian/s of some of the children who attend her Day Care, for us to photograph them for our marketing purposes.
They were only too happy to assist, so in due course Wendy and Wandi set off for the photo shoot/distribution.
The children were apparently really patient and enduring as they were moved around from one location to another within the school grounds, and were asked to pose with the various KAS items they had been given.
I was in Cape Town at the time, visiting my daughter, so could not be there myself.
