PLAIN JANE SQUARE
Knit pattern by Carol Playford (UK)
PJ’s are the easiest squares to make, they can be knitted or crocheted. I’m sure all KAS crafters are able to make a PJ square. They are the backbone of Knit-A-Square. It takes 35 of these squares to make a blanket for a child in need and each square is treasured. We would love to see your PJ’s so please upload your photos onto the forum.

A true PJ square is all one colour but they can be made with variegated and self-patterning yarn or striped like the ones below by Bev Jeffery (Australia) & Rebecca Price (UK)
“I’m just a ‘Plain Jane’ square. Nothing fancy, nothing grand! Just a ‘Plain Jane’ square, made by a loving hand. You think I’m not important? Well, think again, my friend! ‘Cause many other ‘Plain Janes’ when they’re joined end to end will keep an orphan warm at night, wrap ‘round them on cold days, and tell them that they’re loved in, oh, so many ways!” Anne Powell (Canada)
