35 SQUARES MAKE A BLANKET

FUNDRAISING IDEA

Recently a booklet of knitting patterns for 8" squares became available for FREE download in our KAS Shop.

I am challenging myself to make one of every pattern by 2022 (17 weeks away!).    Many of the 35 designs are new to me and may prove difficult to accomplish, but I will give them all a good go!!

To benefit KAS through my challenge I would appreciate US$ sponsorship per different pattern square, or as nominated US$  pledge for my total effort.

Wish me luck!  

(Money to be submitted in January please)

Here is Square 9 The Raspberry Square. I enjoyed doing this square, I liked the challenge of trying a new pattern. The pattern wasn't that hard, but it was slow to knit, (it was a bit difficult pearling the 3 stitches together). Oddly I had to increase the stitch count to 58 to get it the right size too. A matter of difference in yarn and knitting tension I guess. (I don't think my knitting tension is tight though). My mother helped me work out how to do the knit, pearl, knit into a single stitch and incidentally she has always known this stitch as 'Blackberry'. She also 'fixed' my mistake for me as I got to the last couple of pattern rows. I suddenly discovered I had 'lost' some stitches somewhere and Mum came to the rescue!

How strange, Wendy - to think we were working on our squares from opposite sides of the world! Now you mention it, blackberry stitch rings a bell with me.

I liked this stitch, but had to concentrate with the counting ( a couple...or more of 'unpicks' for me) as I tend to go into lala land when I knit sometimes, so following a pattern such as this can be challenging.....hahaha. 

I  LOVE it in this colour, too. Yes, I had to add quite a few stitches, too, Wendy....not sure how many.

VERY pretty square here Wendy.   Thank you for persevering!

I LOVE  the outcome of this square.   It was pretty straightforward to knit once I got the tension right.   It is very textured, is attention grabbing, and is so squidgy.   Probably my favourite so far and I feel a child will enjoy it too!

Love the colour of this one too, and agree a very pretty pattern.

LOVING the colour and pattern in this one Karen.  :))
