Square Circle Forum

"Variety is the Spice of Life"- and this month's theme offers plenty of variety whatever your level of skills in knitting or crochet.

Let  your imagination run riot with  yarn, colour,  stitch  and texture to create squares, blankets, hand warmers or toys, whether a  traditional crochet granny square,  in knitted garter stitch -  we love Plain Janes  - or in the wonderful range of variegated yarn. 

Or try your hand at something new  - there are lots of ideas on the KAS Pattern Book

Do share your pictures of grannies, garters and variegated wonders  on the KAS Square Forum page - under Photos and also under Discussion Categories for the October 2017 theme.   We look forward to seeing them.

Update:  Linda has kindly created two photo albums of the beautiful squares, blankets, toys, hand-wrmers and hats that KAS members have made this month to far  - an amazing and impressive collection with many not featured on the specific October page, so do take a look at the links below.





With apologies, I prepared this introduction ages ago with lots of your lovely squares as examples of grannies, garters and variegated wonders - but I have spent all afternoon trying to post it, and it keeps telling me I am way, way over the no. of characters allowed. I admit I am not very IT savvy, but I have resized images, edited the text to no avail. So instead - here it is in plain words.

I look forward to you all adding lots of colour to this month's theme.

Fabulous, fabulous toys, Deborah. A really good likeness of the 'real' Sammy D. Jr.!!

As always, your attention to detail is nothing short of amazing.  :))

Two sets of striped "garters" from Greta of Earlston Wednesay Club.



I love the top striped squares from Greta very much!

Beautiful squares from Greta, Susan.  :))

The yarn in the top ones is simply deeeeelish!!

Maybe this one could be added to October 2017 Theme. There are small grannies and variegated yarn was used.

Maggie, your vibrant, joyful squares will stand out as beacons in any blanket,

Oooh, another lovely collection, Maggie.....you have some gorgeous variegated yarns in your stash...and the red highlights are a dazzling, finishing touch.  :))

What a stunner, Karla!!!!! A beautiful message to a lucky child and your sweet embellishments will be a welcome delight.  :))

A wonderful, unique blanket, Karla, with a heartfelt message. Thank you.

I am sorry but it isn´t a blanket. There are only 6 squares /40x60 cm/ together.

No need to apologise, Karia, as it was my mistake, but it will still make a striking centre for any blanket.

I love this. Can imagine a child choosing to lay their head on this panel.
