Hello Joan, 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.  As the name implies, we focus on sending 8” x 8”(20 cm x 20 cm) squares to be made into blankets to provide comfort to the many children in need.

Wonderful that you have already sent a parcel with 21 squares !!! I was going to add a comment about the tally but I see Pam has already answered your question :-)

If you are looking for patterns please check the KAS Pattern Book for garments and squares for the children.  We are focusing on children aged 3-9 years old. 

Also visit “Helpful Hints” [see menu bar above] for information about:  Questions you may have (FAQs) and how to navigate the forum

We have monthly challenges that you might be interested in joining.  This month we are focussing on long-sleeved garments for the children to wear during their cold winters.  Click here to read all about it ! 

 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. Since parcels are arriving all the time, please use the most inexpensive way to send.  Whenever your parcel arrives, it will be appreciated.

Making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and 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 !
