Hello Fatima, so glad you have joined us. Keeping the children in South Africa warm has brought together a world-wide group of caring knitters and crocheters. I see Ronda has replied. I hope you will be able to help on opening days.
Looking for patterns? Check the KAS Pattern Book for garments and squares for the children. We are focusing on children aged 3-9 years old.
Please visit “Helpful Hints” [see menu bar above] for information:
- Questions you may have (FAQs),
- How to navigate the forum,
- Postage information [not that you need this one]
- Learn when your squares arrived in South Africa! [not that you need this one either]
We have a monthly challenge as well. This is a fun way to try new colours, ideas or patterns revolving around the theme. If you wish, you may create something new and different......it could be making a plain square using a new colour, a different stitch or trying a totally new way of knitting/ crocheting. An 8”/20cm square is the perfect size for experimenting. The September challenge has been extended to Oct 6. It is all about Education ! Please join us here to see what others have made for ‘educational’ squares and then add a few of your own :-)
As always, making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and still help the children. Plain Janes, as they are affectionately called, are the backbone of KAS. Since a blanket is created with 35 squares sent by people around the world, squares are needed all the time.
We would love to see photos of your work. Click on the photo option in the tabs above and follow the prompts.
Hello Fatima ... there will shortly be a SA page on the website giving contact information. In the meantime, please call me on 0826555150 and we can make a plan for collection/delivery of the squares and so avoid the cost of postage. Thank you for your support of Knit-a-Square ... Ronda
