I am delighted to host another  KAS monthly and there  is something for everyone in this month's topic,   Whatever your level of skill,  let your imagination run riot with your choice of yarn, stitch, colour, pattern, texture, motif, and design to create squares, beanie hats, hand warmers and toys, 


Here are just a few ideas to get your needles clicking, though members from the southern hemisphere will have their own interpretations of their gardens.  Be inspired by the colours of nature. Remember that Plain Janes are the foundation of KAS blankets and we would love to reflect a riot of colour in the garden with both self-coloured squares and picture squares.


Some ideas:

  • The obvious - flowers, plants, trees, lawns, leaves, soil, fruit & veg.
  • Garden visitors – birds, bees, butterflies, ladybirds, hedgehogs, caterpillars, – perhaps hold a teddy bears’ picnic.
  • Garden features - bird feeders, water features, sand pits, ponds, picnic tables, trellis, fences, paths, crazy paving, tubs, and window boxes.
  • Tools of the trade – spades, forks, wheelbarrows, watering can.

  • Be inspired by a selection of squares made this year by KAS members.

    Help to create a garden of delights to bring colour,       cheerfulness and warmth  into the children's lives.       

    I look forward to seeing your contributions on the Forum.

Your wish is my command, Bev!   It so happened I had two pink and purple squares  I had made earlier.

The first square was inspired by sweet peas - my favourite summer  cottage garden flower  with lovely pastel colours and scent; and the second inspired by aubretia - one of my favourite spring flower that I always have in the garden. 



Susan your squares are so pretty!

Oh wow, Susan!!  They are both SO pretty...couldn't possibly choose a fave.  :))

I LOVE sweet peas in the garden, however, in a confined space their beautiful perfume gives me a headache. 

So pretty Susan. 

Two lion toys enjoying the Texas sunshine before being packed away to travel to South Africa.  This is a fun new pattern that assembles quickly.

Amy these are so cute - is the pattern free online somewhere.... My friends like to make small hand-holdable crochet toys + would prob give these a go....

These are sure to delight the children :))

So cuddle, Amy.  The children will love them.

Aww Amy, your little lions are simply delightful !! I LOVE their colours.  :))

Oh wow just love the flowers in the “hair”. 

Amy, they are adorable.

Interesting that you should mention sweet peas, Susan. There used to be a Sweet Pea Nursery near to where my Grandma lived and I've made this blanket to represent the beautiful swathes of colour they produced. I only wish I could replicate the scent!
