Square Circle Forum

Welcome, everyone, to the August 2015 theme!

I'm excited to be hosting for the first time.

Do you have any of these colours in your stash?

You do? Then you can begin a square for this theme immediately!

This month we are focusing on the international community of KAS.

Squares are sent from all over the world and are joined together, with love, to warm hundreds of children.

The August theme will explore the different flags of the countries across the world.

Most of the flags use bold, plain colours and simple, straight-line stripes.

This theme provides something for everyone!

Those of you who love to make our 'backbone' square - the Plain Jane - can delight in the bright, crayon-box colours, whilst those of you who really love a challenge could get your creative juices running around some of the more complex flags, such as Swaziland or Sri Lanka!

Many flags are blocks of straight-line stripes - ideal for either knitters or crocheters.

Here are each continent's flags in more detail:

We last completed this theme/challenge back in April 2012 and KASers came up with some amazing squares - both those which were direct representations of flags and those which were inspired by the colours. Here's a selection from back then:

 

I thought we'd have a mini-challenge running within this theme.

I also thought that it would be interesting to see how many countries are represented through the contributions of forum members to this discussion - watch this space for more details!

Sharon Fennell posted this gorgeous blanket:

"Slightly delayed just missed the end of the month, the union jacks took longer than anticipated - not sure where the month went! Plain squares have been completed in Karen Bennett's tuck stitch. Hopefully the flat edge will help the curl on flags."

Flag theme blanket

I set myself, what I thought, was a modest target for this month......a jumper for KAS and four squares for August......have only completed the front and back of the jumper......have finally completed the four squares in the wee hours of this morning.....camera has distorted some of the colours....as usual.  :)) Where did the month go????
