150 squares for CANADA's 150th Birthday

Yesterday, I sent a package of 50 squares to South Africa.  That makes a total of 150 squares sent in 2017 -- a fluky coincidence that ties in nicely with Canada's 150th Birthday.  Thanks to all the knitters that contributed to this total:  St. Pat's Elementary School knitting club students, Carol Miller, Sylvie's Knitting Club and Rita's Mother.  I knit a few squares too!!

Welcome to KAS from the Pacific Coast. I love the selection of squares you posted in the photo!  I mostly knit (a little crochet but very basic).  there is a really nice group of people here on the site.  They are so willing to help out if a person has any questions too. I like to look at the photos pages to see all the work people are doing and also, to get ideas and inspiration.  Again Warmest Welcome and  Happy Knitting!

Hi Ruth.

A  warm welcome to Knit A Square.....from over here in Western Australia.

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 Knit-A-Square.  Since a blanket is created with 35 squares sent by people from around the world, squares are needed all the time. The basic square being a garter stitch/single colour or striped square or I think it is single or double crochet  if your preference is for crochet. By clicking on the KASpattern book tab at the top of the page you can also find lots of other patterns provided by our fellow KASers.  

Please check out the 'Helpful Hints' tab at the top of the page as this may answer many initial questions you may have and will help you get started. Any other questions...just ask...we love to help.  :))
