Square Circle Forum

With many thanks to Debbie Posmontier,

who launched the idea of temperature squares as a monthly theme.

I am pleased to host:

TEMPERATURES AROUND THE GLOBE IN 30 DAYS 

Have you heard of temperature squares?

They are a wonderful theme idea, and it's easy to see why -- they're fun to make, a 30 day project and have the potential to turn into cheerful blankets for boys and girls.

What are temparature squares? 

The basic idea is that you knit or crochet a square for a blanket in a color that coordinates with the temperature. If you use different  colors, you'll get a beautiful variation throughout the day, week or even month . Depending on the climate where you live, each color will correspond to the degrees.

Below  is a sample color chart. I have chosen this one for the children because of its bold colors. Please feel free to use pastels, shades, tones.

Don’t think if it snows and it is far below zero (-18C), your square should consist of one color only (following the chart it should be Pinky Purple)..the day has more temperatures than one, maybe the same day it rises up to -7C (Blue).. and imagine sitting in the sun…..the real feel could be +10C (Green) and the colors of your square will change….and maybe even your mood?

There are so many variations you could do for squares , or maybe you are in the mood to make a blanket….

- You don't necessarily have to make striped squares…..use any pattern you like, e.g. circle in a square, CtC diagonal stripes, diagonal knit squares, granny squares, and so on. The stripes or other patterns and plain janes will represent our global community temperature squares.

- Think of the high and low temp of each day – and also at night - for a single location, or,

- The high and low temperatures of a location combined in the northern and southern hemisphere, e.g. Toronto combined with Bryanston.....

Since we live all over the world, the possibilities are endless and I am curious to see what the temperatures will bring!

Talking about temperatures: Handwarmers are more than welcome!

Have fun Everyone!

A square for all the pink/puple fans (including myself).  Most of Ontario Canada broke records for the lowest temps for Nov.10.  Our area dipped to -18.6 C,  a perfect 'excuse' to use pink and purple :-). Sorry Glo not warm enough for blue :-(

That's okay, Linda.  When you put pink and purple together like this, it's impossible to not like it :)))  What a gorgeous square. xo

Wow Linda, this is a stunning combi of stitches and the colors.....wowza! The -18.6 C is extremely cold, but the colors of the square makes it much warmer :-)

10 pairs handwarmers. not too sure if they fit this theme or not.

Oh Joan, these are just lovely!  I believe they do fit this theme.  We are crafters from all over the world, and it looks like temperatures from many geographic areas are represented here :)  I see mine in the second from the left in the top row ... sky blue :)  We're at -2 this morning ... xo

These are super handwarmers Joan.   I love the variety of colours,

Lovely handwarmers Joan! Of course they fit in the theme, they represent global temps in beautilful tones and warmth for the children. Thank  you so much.

Warm and very pretty hand-warmers, Joan. Thanks

More grannies made by Maggie Rees:

Beautiful collection Maggie. Lovely colors!

Maggie, your grannies are beautiful!  Great colors to brighten up any day ... sunshine, cloudy, rainy, or snowy ... xo

The colour chart itself makes a lovely stripy square.
