I seem to remember before all the marvellous fund raising started that it was suggested that we should knit squares together before sending them, but then I also remember reading in a discussion…Continue

Yarn weight for hand warmers

Could someone tell me if the pattern for the hand warmers is for two strands of yarn or just one.  I usually use two strands of double knit for making squares on 6mm needles, but am worried that one…Continue

"Some awe inspiring ideas here, well done Bev, Chris and the Mods. I love the idea of Happy Scrappies and Boost the Plain Jane's combined, this could produce some amazing squares."

"Hi Leanne, I use Wool Warehouse as they have very good quality yarns for extremely good prices and deliver very quickly. They do gift vouchers or I'm sure you can send to a different address from your own.  You can also get a discount code…"

Welcome to Knit A Square from the middle of Canada! Sorry I’m a bit late with this, my health’s not been brilliant lately.  Am I ever brilliant? Ahem, I’m here and sincere now.  Greetings!  Please feel free to visit Discussions or join Groups to talk about things or go to Photos to see what some members are up to.  These are in a line on top of the page, just click on them.  As for the photos, talk about yarn artistry! Try not to be intimidated, I’m a plain square person myself but it’s lovely to view the more artsy squares.  KAS is a very positive group and all these squares and sweaters and hats etc. go to help the poorest of the poor, the South African AIDS/HIV orphans who are parent-less and being cared for by many good and kind folk in often desperate surroundings.  Our crocheted, knitted and sewn items can help give a child hope for the future because they are not forgotten, plus  warmth and a smile and often a toy to cuddle.  Glad you’re with us!

Hello Claire, so glad you have joined us. Keeping the children in South Africa warm has brought together a world-wide group of caring knitters and crocheters. 

Looking for patterns?  Check the KAS Pattern Book for garments and squares for the children.  We are focusing on children aged 3-9 years old. 

Please visit “Helpful Hints” [see menu bar above] for information:

- Questions you may have (FAQs),

- How to navigate the forum,

- Postage information and

- Learn when your squares arrived in South Africa!

We have a monthly challenge as well.  This is a fun way to try new colours, ideas or patterns revolving around the theme. If you wish, you may create something new and different......it could be making a plain square using a new colour, a different stitch or trying a totally new way of knitting/ crocheting.  An 8”/20cm square is the perfect size for experimenting. The September challenge is all about Education !  Please join us here to see what others have made for ‘educational’ squares and then add a few of your own :-)

If you are interested in joining any of our challenges, please note: Your parcel does not need to arrive in South Africa before the end of the challenge month.  Many of us use sea-mail and find parcels take between 6-10 weeks to arrive. Whenever your parcel arrives,  it will be appreciated and you are keeping children warm.

As always, making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and still help the children.  Plain Janes, as they are affectionately called, are the backbone of KAS.  Since a blanket is created with 35 squares sent by people around the world, squares are needed all the time.

We would love to see photos of your work. Click on the photo option in the tabs above and follow the prompts.

Enjoy !
