Hi everyone! I've been knitting almost 10 years -- taught myself the basics from a book, and fell in love with the craft! I've been wanting to knit for charity, and am doing blankets for a U.S.…Continue

Hello Richelle, 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.

If you haven’t already, please read through the welcome message on the forum main page for helpful hints and things that might interest you. The FAQ category should answer any general questions you may have. If not, please ask. http://forum.knit-a-square.com

Wondering what is needed besides squares ? Here is a link to Ronda’s wish list for 2013 :  http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/kas-wish-list-guidelines-for-2013

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. 

You might like the Monthly challenge.  This is a fun way to try new ideas or patterns.  Every month, a theme is chosen, and if you wish, you may create something new and different.

February’s challenge is Transportation. Have a look at the discussion for ideas on what you can make.

Many people are using 'Ecofelt' to make the cars/trucks/spaceships and then sewing them onto the plain squares. This is an easy way to give added interest to a square. Plus the children will be delighted !

If you would prefer to work with Plain Janes then have fun with colours that remind you of transportation.  Since it takes 35 squares to make one blanket, squares, especially Plain Janes are needed all the time.

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 month.  Those of us who use sea-mail find parcels take between 8-10 weeks to arrive. Whenever your parcel arrives, know it will be appreciated and that you are keeping children warm.

We would love to see photos of your work. .  Click on the photo option at the top of the page and follow the prompts.

Enjoy !

KAS supplied blankets, hats, handwarmers and toys to over 5,500 children in 2017.  If Ronda’s wishes come true, in 2018 even more children will receive the gift of warmth and love from around the world.
