"Wow, Gloria!  I'm constantly amazed at your ability to work out new patterns, and what a brilliant square you've produced!"

Lesley King replied to Gloria Grandy's discussion MARCH 2021 - NEW TO YOU
"This just goes to show the difference that yarn and tension make - I also have a 5mm hook and used DK, but a thinner than average one, and a 36 chain produced a 7" square!  I'll start at 42 next time :))"

Lesley King replied to Gloria Grandy's discussion MARCH 2021 - NEW TO YOU
"Thanks, Gloria - I'll certainly be doing this again, maybe for the 'two colour challenge' in November, if not before.  And next time I'll try to make eight-inch squares - this one needs a border added as it's too small…"

"Playing catch-up as usual, but at last my first attempt is finished - took longer than I expected!  Mine looks different from Patricia's and Gloria's - maybe I was doing something wrong?"

"Thank you, Gloria, for an amazing month - it's been wonderful to see how people have been inspired to try so many new ideas, and I for one have really enjoyed branching out into new areas. Well done, too,  for embracing the pink CoM - now…"

"Love the textured squares, Patricia - they had variety and interest to PJs - and the mitred squares always look good too."

Lesley King replied to Gloria Grandy's discussion MARCH 2021 - NEW TO YOU
"And I have it!!  May not be clear from the photo, but it is a double ended hook, and most definitely new to me !  30 cms long, so feels a bit clumsy, but I'm sure I'll get used to it - can't wait to get started :))"

Thank you so much Lesley for your compliments. I will write you an email and explain how I made the edge around the blanket. xo

Lesley, did you find a pattern for the pentagons?Please  let me know. If you didn't, I'll send you the pattern I use.

I have a pattern for the African Flower Ball. I can send it to you, but I found it on Internet under African Flower Soccer Ball. It was created to celebrate the World Cup in SA. If you can't find it ther, let me know and I'll send you my copy. It's only 5 rounds. You need 12 to make a ball the size of mine, which is smaller then a regular soccerball.

Hi Lesley

I saw your comment on my square (thank you!). The yarn that I used is called Crofter and is made by Sirdar. It comes in many different colour combinations and is lovely to work with. In this picture, it is the ball on the far right: http://forum.knit-a-square.com/photo/bargain-yarn?context=user

Hope that helps! Helen

Hi Lesley.

No worries. It takes a little time to see how it all 'works'.

Hi Lesley.

A warm welcome to Knit A Square from over here in Western Australia. :))

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. You are encouraged to knit/crochet in any stitch you prefer, but we do ask that they not be too 'lacy' as warmth is our highest priority. PJs (Plain Janes as they are affectionately known) are the backbone to 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 you can also find lots of  patterns provided by our fellow KASers.  If you would kindly check out our wishlist for 2016, you can see what items we are currently focusing on.
