A tip for adding photos: In the top left side of the comment box, there is a small picture second from left, when the cursor is hovered over it, it says 'Image'.

A warm welcome to KAS....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 KAS. 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.
