Welcome to the June 2023 Theme


Over the years of Knit A Square, we have had many themes featuring Africa. The squares and blankets and toys have been amazing!!

With this in mind, we can take a trip back down memory lane and gain inspiration from past endeavours, to create some loving  warmth for the recipient children of 2023......

  • June 2023 theme - Beautiful Africa.

    Last five squares of African animals. :))

  • June 2023 theme - Beautiful Africa.

    Lions and apes.

    Yarn was a cake called Lime Musk. There is not any lime or musk in it that I can see. Colours are more like avocado/mustard, salmon pink, peach through to an orange/reddish colour . 

    Still have five more appliques to sew on. Wish I was not sooooo slow at handsewing.  :))

    • Fantastic collection, Bev.   I like the colors, whatever their names are, and the appliques are perfect (as always!) 

    • Super squares, Bev - the colours are great, and the children who encounter these animals are going to love them!

    • Another fantastic set of appliquéd squares; I’m amazed your fingers aren’t raw, they aren’t the easiest of things to sew on, I know they’re tough!

    Cheers Bev honey!    I've enjoyed this theme and using up some yellow wool has made a little space.   I do have more knitting to finish which was for this theme, but alas my personal life and headspace is scrambled at the moment, so I feel I may put my half done projects away to finish at the end of the year clearout theme time.

    • Thinking of you and sending best wishes for regaining your zen, soon, Karen. xo

      • Beautiful work from your needles as always this month, Karen.   Hoping that things settle down for you, and you can breathe again.

    As I have had a lot of this lemon, butter, white, mustard mix wool for years I decided to use the last of it up after doing blanket 71.    I basically knit the wool from both ends of their balls and waited to see what it looked like for hats.   8 hats, wool used!

    • Clever way to use your yarn up, with brilliant effect! :)
