35 SQUARES MAKE A BLANKET
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)
Karen, I’d like to sponsor you for $1 per square as well. I love all your squares so far, you’re doing a great job with all these new patterns! What a magnificent idea from Patricia to raise some much needed funds for KAS.
Woo Hoo!! You are on a roll, Karen......these are SUPER!!
Thanks for all your efforts in trying to get the checker square happening.....more patience than me, babe. :))
Thanks ever so much! ! $22 per different square design + the generous matching pledger.... I really appreciate the interest + support, Kxx
Love this idea Karen. I had a look at the pattern book, but thought some of the patterns were a bit beyond me, perhaps I should give some of them a go?
I will also pledge $1 per square you do. Love the one's you have made so far.
Thank you very much Wendy ✔️. Of course you should give some a go! I'm attempting them in numerical order and so far, with a little perseverance + persistence I'm thriving on the challenge and $ incentive. K x ♥️
Your squares are looking great, Karen!
Wendy, you should absolutely give these a try. You don't have to do anything that you don't like, but there is bound to be at least one that you'll really like. i am very much a beginner knitter who didn't plan to make these, but Karen is making them irresistible so I'm working on a couple patterns now, not in order, but just two that I found interesting. Won't you join in?
Karen, you are doing so well, you will have raised a fantastic amount for KAS :))

* * * I have gone back to review why my initial attempts at this square which did not work correctly for me, and my errors were purely down to stitch count. The correct patterns works on multiples of 4 sts. You can see I wrote the pattern down for myself as a 10 row repeat to help me keep Right Side correct in my brain. Apologies for the confusion, but I got there in the end! * * *
Well done for perseverance, Karen..Keep up the good work!
Looks lovely. I like the color you chose, too.
Thank you, I appreciated your support + encouragement to re-visit Square 11. It was well worth our collaborative efforts to get it right ✔️
A* for effort and results Karen
