A SAFARI THROUGH AFRICA
This month we will travel across the continent of Africa with most of our attention on South Africa.
We will explore the treasures of the Egyptian pyramids, the wonders of the Okavango Delta, the majesty of Victoria Falls, the flowing waters of the Nile River, the smells and colors of a Moroccan Bazaar, the sands of the Sahara Desert, the snow capped mountains of Mt. Kilimanjaro and the beauty of our beloved South Africa.
Our squares, blankets, toys, hand-warmers and beanies can show us the colors of this continent from the people...
...to the animals...
In past years, Knit a Square has had many distributions on Mandela Day, July 18. We try to have many blankets and items that focus on South Africa, animals, colors and culture. Our theme is early enough so that we can post our items to be included in this special event.
Since gold can be found in many of the countries in Africa our Color of the Month (COM) is gold/yellow. Our Pattern of the Year is the Plain Jane, a square of one solid color, usually made with a single crochet or a garter stitch, but they can also be made with other textured stitches.

Oh Amy, what an adorable centrepiece for a child's blanket! Well done! ... xo
Your giraffe will certainly stand out in a blanket, Amy.....sooo sweet. :))
An amazing square - I can imagine a little one holding a 'conversation' with this chap, he looks so alert!
Amy this giraffe is fabulous! As I cannot crochet the task of making a picture square just baffles me entirely. Very clever indeed, and a winning addition to any blanket ❤️
Wonderful, Amy. I love these patterns from the Wildlife Graphghan.
I love your giraffe face Amy, it is gorgeous in that front on view. It will look fabulous in a blanket.
So neat, and as you know I am a fan of appliqués! A super square :))
This is fabulous. Checks all the boxes for this month's theme.
It doesn't get better than this, Lesley. You've done the yarn proud.
So perfect, Lesley. You have certainly put that lovely yarn to good use :) ... xo
That's a really pretty shade, Lesley and it is the perfect background for your flag. :))
