Joining up with Knit a Square

Hello, I am from Canada and have recently joined Knit a Square.I have a son who is a volunteer in South Africa and also in Zambia and he is part of an organization called Hands at Work.  They work with communities in 8 different countries in Africa and they go out into community and work with the widows and the orphans, they look after feeding them daily and also helping with the education of the children.  I am wondering how we can go about working together with both of these organizations to…See More

Hello Kathleen from a fellow Canadian and Ontarian :-) I have family in St. Catharines which means I am familiar with where you live. 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. 

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. 

Please visit “Helpful Hints” [see menu bar above] for information:

- Questions you may have (FAQs),

- How to navigate the forum,

- Postage information and

- Learn when your squares arrived in South Africa!

We have a monthly challenge as well.  This is a fun way to try new colours, ideas or patterns revolving around the theme. If you wish, you may create something new and different......it could be making a plain square using a new colour, a different stitch or trying a totally new way of knitting/ crocheting.  An 8”/20cm square is the perfect size for experimenting. The September challenge has been extended to Oct 6. It is all about Education !  Please join us here to see what others have made for ‘educational’ squares and then add a few of your own :-)

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 challenge month.  Many of us use sea-mail and find parcels take between 6-10 weeks to arrive. Since parcels are arriving all the time, please use the most inexpensive way to send your parcel.  Whenever your parcel arrives, it will be appreciated and you are keeping children warm.

As always, making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and still 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 around the world, squares are needed all the time.

We would love to see photos of your work. Click on the photo option in the tabs above and follow the prompts.

Enjoy !
