Knitting or crocheting an 8" square or two or possibly even a few is a wonderful gift for the children. They love to receive their blankets, created from squares, which come from kindly, caring folk such as yourself, from over 60 countries all over our world. PJs (Plain Janes as they are affectionately known) are the backbone of all our blankets. These are single colour squares that are in garter stitch(knitting) or single crochet as they are very solid and provide a contrast to a picture/striped/patterned square or two that may be added to a blanket.By clicking on the KASpattern book tab at the top of the page or our other square pattern discussion http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/member-s-patterns-squaresyou can also find lots of patterns provided by our fellow K-A-Sers. If you would kindly check out our wishlist, you can see what items we are currently focusing on. http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/wish-list-2017

Hello Nel, A warm welcome from Anneke, the Netherlands! So glad you became a member of KAS! Your entrance with the lovely toys, all home made - I am sure about that - , and your beautilful blanket is really heartwarming. The children will cherish the toys to the moon and back. Your blanket is wonderful, so beautifully made! You used the blanket stitch, one of my favourites, because the structure of it gives so much warmth.....to a child who has nothing at all. Warm hugs, Anneke.
Beste Nel, Zooo fijn dat je lid bent geworden van het forum! Je maakt werkelijk prachtig werk, en haken is mijn favoriet! En nu zijn we met zijn 3-en, eindelijk weer eens wat nederlands spreken er tussendoor :-) En zeg maar tegen Noorje, dat ik verliefd ben op haar prachtige dekens en de Nijntjes......zoooo lief! Wat heerlijk voor de kinderen in SA dat er nog mensen met een groot hart zijn, zoals jullie.....xoxo
