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.

Postcript: 

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.

THANK YOU.

This is KNITCO wool from Turkey.   It is some of a joblot of wool I bought unseen on-line.    Some balls are chunky, some are variegated throughout, some start variegated then go block, and other are just 3 block colours (ie one third green, one third red, one third grey)    Very unusual and a bit of fun to work with.

Thank you, Maggie - the muted colour of the two bottom squares   sets off the vibrant blue and yellow so well. 

Thank you Susan.

Great combination of colors, Maggie. Love the yellow one.

Sooo pretty, Maggie.....LOVING all the colour combinations you are using.  :))

Such nice and unusual wool Karen.  You have made some really great squares.

This looks a great stash addition, Karen, and we look forward to seeing more squares.  Happy knitting!

I thought I would try red and black for a change.  What do you think Susan?   Shall I make more of these?

Don''t hesitate, Maggie!     It is always a good idea in using up black or grey wool to combine it with warming colours.  Your squares are so bright and cheerful and make me think of a roaring fire  with red hot coals among the black.  I like the variation  in the two designs too - both very effective. . 

Thank you Karen.  I shall make more of these.

Very striking, Maggie. I like all of your squares and colour choices.
