Hello Sarah-Jane.

A warm welcome to Knit-A-Square (KAS) from South Wales, thank you for joining us!

KAS is a wonderful world-wide community of caring people who knit and crochet, to help keep orphaned and vulnerable children in South Africa (SA) warm during their very cold winters.

Through the forum and the tabs across the top of the page, you are able to:

-          Find the important information that you need before posting your parcel, including the Packing Slip that needs to be included inside every parcel .This also has the important details of how to label your parcel to prevent volunteers in SA being charged to receive it. Here you can also ask any questions you may have (Helpful Hints).

-          Share in a variety of discussions either by following or contributing. You can learn what is happening in South Africa and see photos of unpacking, and sorting, completed blankets and distributions to the children. Each month we have a different theme; these are for fun and inspiration. Please join in if you wish (Discussion Categories).

-          Access the free pattern book. The garment patterns have been designed by KAS to meet the needs of the children, most of whom are 3 -9 years old. There are also plenty of lovely patterns for squares too. It is worth having a look, as it explains the importance of leaving a 20” tail on each square and how to ‘butterfly’ the tails before sending (KAS Pattern Book).

-          See the photos of other members work and share your own. This is inspirational! (Photos).

-          Purchase items, which not only help KAS financially, but provide additional items for the children (KAS Shop).

Our main focus is making 8” x 8” (20cm x 20cm) squares for blankets. These can be knitted or crocheted in any stitch, as every square is valued whether they are plain or fancy! Most importantly, they need to be the right size for the volunteers in SA to sew together into lovely warm blankets for the children. There are 35 squares in each blanket, all made by caring people across the world who want to keep vulnerable children warm. Volunteers in SA distribute the blankets and warm garments to the needy children, who are then wrapped in warmth and the assurance that someone cares.

I hope you enjoy knitting / crocheting for the children and the fellowship of other like-minded KAS members across the world.

Welcome to KAS Sarah-jane.. we are a friendly group .  I was interested to see you are from Huddersfield as my husband was born there! We live a long way away from there now in Dorset.

Hi Sarah.  Welcome to the group. You'll find it takes a little bit of time to figure out all the different discussion threads, but there's always something going on and always a member to help you if you have a query.



The Donate button provides 2 options:

  1. One time donation
  2. Monthly subscription               [click the box]

Because of PayPal/banking fees, KAS asks that your donation be 5USD [or more].  Anything less, means your donation is eaten up with fees.  Thank you!


Our goal is to remove the monthly deficit that Ronda and her team have to deal with. You can:

1. Make a donation whenever you are able.

2. Sign up for an ongoing monthly donation (subscription).

3. Shop at the KasShop!

Please follow this discussion for monthly updates, current financial reports and ideas on what we can all do to help. Click link : 




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.
