"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!!
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. :))
I am sorry but it isn´t a blanket. There are only 6 squares /40x60 cm/ together.
I love this. Can imagine a child choosing to lay their head on this panel.
