"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.
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.
Wow. these are lovely Karla especially with the word love crochet into the squares. I love this.
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.
Wow, I love this yarn. What a great gift.
Beautiful work as always, Chris.
Gorgeous squares Christine. T he yarn colors are beautiful. Thanks, Bev
