As we enter the last few weeks of yet another wonderful KAS year, it's time to plan ahead for 2017.
We have created a list of themes, which we hope will engage and inspire you.

As we go about creating squares and other items for 'our' children - in each theme for 2017, let's 'think like a child'. The amazing colours, the designs, the patterns that any child would love......and as always, please don't forget the all-important pj (i.e. garter/single crochet/granny) square that supports all the squares in coming together to create each beautiful blanket.
