"Hi there ... I am busy planning the "I do like to be beside the seaside" squares and want to know IF I can knit all 35 of the squares 15 x 15 cms? I've purchased some motif patterns and they're only 15 x 15cms. Please…"
The themes are just for fun and inspiration for each other, really.
K-A-S is most appreciative of any squares.....and it doesn't have to be in lots of 35.....so no pressure at all. :))
I hope you will have a little time to spend there and see how it all works. It would be my dream to go there and 'check it out', but flying would be a major hurdle for me. I like my feet on the ground. :))
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
