Good morning Jasmine.
I sew on any appliques, as even though they are 'iron on', I'm thinking that over time the glue would break down and then you are just left with any icky/crusty mess and no picture.....and also, knowing my luck, I'd iron them on crooked or scorch the yarn....lol.
Slow and steady wins the race....as they say. I am not a fast knitter, either. I love to knit diagonals, too......they just seem faster....lol. Here is the link to the pattern I and many others use, from the K-A-S pattern book (tab is at the top of the page, if you'd like to see the rest).
Sometimes the cast off side of the diagonal square can seem a little elongated, so as suggested by another member (Christine J., I think), when I come to the last six stitches, I k1, k2 tog, k2 tog, k1. Next row, k1, k2 tog, k1 then knit all remaining 3 sts together. It gives a lovely 'square' shape.
A warm welcome to Knit A Square, from over here in Western Australia. :))
Knitting or crocheting an 8" square or two or possibly even a few is a wonderful gift for the children. They love to receive their blankets, created from squares, which come from kindly, caring folk such as yourself, from over 60 countries all over our world. You are encouraged to knit/crochet in any stitch you prefer, but we do ask that they not be too 'lacy' as warmth is our highest priority. PJs (Plain Janes as they are affectionately known) are the backbone to all our blankets. These are single colour squares that are in garter stitch(knitting) or single crochet as they are very solid and provide a contrast to a picture/striped/patterned square or two that may be added to a blanket.By clicking on the KASpattern book tab at the top of the page you can also find lots of patterns provided by our fellow K-A-Sers. If you would kindly check out our wishlist, you can see what items we are currently focusing on.http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/wish-list-2017
