Hi Marlene, the sweater patterns are available in the KAS Pattern book [see menu tab above]. Scroll down the page to find the crochet patterns.  The patterns are there for the Go-Over, Hexagon sweater and the Stripes and Triangles...I wasn't sure which one you want to start first :-)

Have fun with colours and please post a photo when the sweater is finished.

Welcome to Knit A Square from the middle of Canada!  Kinda snowy out there and the windchill is -34C but I’m inside so that’s good.  Greetings! We’re very glad to have you with us.  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 by some squares and sweaters, they’re very inspiring.  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 Marlene, 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.

Looking for patterns?  Check the KAS Pattern Book [see menu bar above] for garments and squares for the children.  We are focusing on children aged 3-9 years old.  This age group is in need of warm garments and blankets.

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

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 ! 

At the same time we are running a second challenge: KAS Reaches Great Heights for the Children has us making squares to reach the height of Table Mountain in South Africa.  That is 178,000 squares !   Click here to join us by adding your squares and a photo, if possible, to the total.

 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 from 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 !
