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. PJs (Plain Janes as they are affectionately known) are the backbone of 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 or our other square pattern discussion http://forum.knit-a-square.com/forum/topics/member-s-patterns-squaresyou 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

Hello Ada, A warm welcome to Knit-a Square. Van harte welkom op het forum van Knit-a-Square. Mocht je vragen hebben over hoe een en ander werkt, je kunt altijd bij terecht. Ik ben erg blij met je lidmaatschap en ik ben natuurlijk razend benieuwd naar je werk. Ik zal je uitnodigen als "friend" , dan kunnen we mailen met elkaar, mocht je iets te vragen hebben. In het begin lijkt het een beetje een doolhof op de website. Maar, het leert al snel hoor! Die Noortje toch, wat ben ik blij dat ze haar schoonzusje en jou enthousiast heeft gemaakt! Heel fijn weekend gewenst. Hartelijke groet, Anneke
I'm afraid that I can't welcome you in Dutch, but I hope that you will be able to find all the information that you need in the Discussion Categories.
If you have a problem or an enquiry, you can post it in the Questions and Answers discussion. If you wish to express yourself in Dutch, we have several Dutch speaking members and our moderator, Anneke, is Dutch. She will be able to help you.
This item will allow Knit-a-Square to pay our wonderful co-team workers – the Gogos (grandmothers) – to sew the squares received from across the globe into blankets for the children. $5 US will pay for 4 blankets to be stitched together.
"CreateCare Global has set itself two tasks. The first is physical: to bring hope, support and comfort to children for whom poverty and loss are everyday tormentors. The second, and in our view equally important, is to spread the message to the world."
Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
