Square Circle Forum

Happy August, everyone!

This is the one month in the year when I can take some time to breathe and relax - and do LOADS of knitting and crocheting!

It also means I am able to host a theme and spend a bit more time on the forum.

The KAS pattern book has a good selection of knitted and crocheted squares with different patterns and textures, for a starter. The wider Internet is alive with a rich variety of choices, if, like me you have a little more time this month and want to try some thing new.

So this is the month to rake through your stash and find all those weird bits and bobs of eyelash, fuzzy and pom-pom yarns that you never know what to do with!

Of course, this will then create space to buy some lovely new yarns...

Hopefully, that's whetted your appetite and got your creative juices flowing!

Let's see how many people are brave enough to try out at least ONE new stitch or technique this month.

As you upload your photos onto the main site, I will add them to our photo album for the month, which you can view here:

Happy creating!

Wonderful! 

Love your colours, it's a lovely stitch, isn't it? 

Simply beautiful, Marion!! Thanks.

The magnificent butterflies look as if they landed on doilies. Such a gorgeous set Marion.

Marion - these are lovely - are they crocheted?

Yes, I found a tutorial by Hopeful Honey which was easy to follow.

What a fabulous intro, Heather!  I love your examples and the inspiration you have provided.  A new stitch or technique?  I'm game!  I'll see what I can find.  Stay tuned :)) xo

Ooh Amy, these are so pretty!!! Especially LOVE the variegated.  :))

5 very soft and thick squares using chunky yarn.

Beautiful colours, Joan - wish I could find variegated yarn like this!

I had this yarn as a gift for my birthday Lesley. It is Mariners chunky. They sell it on Amazon but unfortunately won't even post to France. :(. They are missing out IMHO.

Thanks, Joan - I'll check it out next time I'm in the UK (definitely must take a bigger suitcase!!!)
