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.

What a beautiful blanket!
What a wonderful creation. Well done Audrey some lucky child is going to treasure this blanket.

What a magnificent  creative blanket! .  Do please pass on  a very big thank you to Audrey.

Thanks ladies, Audrey will be overjoyed to read your kind words. :))

I do love it when someone creative comes up with a brilliant idea - thank you Audrey for the inspiration and your hard work.

This theme has come at just the right time for me. The last donation I received was just not up to scratch. I started unravelling and in the end I had frogged the whole 100, leaving me with dozens of small balls of yarn. Unpicking someone else's work always make me feel guilty but not as much as sending faulty work to the children. I do feel obliged to make it up again as quickly as possible though so grannies and garters is the obvious way to go. I have quite a pile of squares now but many more need to be made. I will post a photo when they're done but whether they'll make it in October remains to be seen.

What a super blanket well done Audrey xx

An AMAZING blanket from Audrey....a forever gift to treasure.  :))

Many Thanks in advance Christine.

You're a star, Christine!!!!

These were a nightmare to knit. I wouldn’t recommend this yarn, it is King Cole Riot.

These are better :)

Very pretty squares Joan what a pity the King Cole Riot is such a nightmare to work with. Xx
