I had a difficult time deciding which pattern to choose for our Pattern of the Month.  There are so many great ones in our KAS PATTERN BOOK, besides all the fabulous patterns and ideas in our MEMBERS' PATTERNS, TIPS, TRICKS, & TECHNIQUES.  And if rumours are to be believed, there may be some new patterns coming soon! 

In the end, however, I chose the


from the KAS Pattern Book because I recently discovered how easy it is to make a perfect 8” square using this pattern.  And a perfect 8" square is what we all aim for, isn’t it :)

Here is just a sample of the 'gorgeousness' you can create with this simple Chain Stitch Square pattern.

These were made by Elaine Jones

You can use any yarn you wish and any color or colors you choose to create a rainbow of beauty for our children's blankets.


If you post photos of your work here and in the photo section [tab at the top of this page] I will then be able to add them to our PHOTO ALBUM.
