"5th from the top (with all the "bits" sewn on) are all my squares.
So many pretty blankets each time. Thank you to everyone who makes it possible to see not only where our squares end up, but also to be inspired by everyone…"
"Lol - it looks like all my squares from the last lot ended up in the same blankets - 7th from the top and 6th from the bottom (the ones with all the "bits" sewn on)! Its interesting how that happens sometimes, yet other times they get…"
"Nowhere near as exciting as everyone else's crafty start to the year lol!! I'm sewing in ends and finishing up the squares, dolls and some more hand-warmers that were knitted/crocheted last year. Once those are done I can start on…"

"What a great way to start the day - new blankets to look at! One day I want to try the corner to corner crochet blanket, and the 3 triangles squares are interesting too. So many new things to try, so little time!"

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
