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.

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.


 Clicking on the  'Helpful Hints' tab at the top of the page, will possibly answer many initial questions you may have . Any other questions...please ask...we love to help.  :))

If you'd like to see what other KASers have been making please click on the photo tab at the top of the page....and feel free to add photos of your own work...we would love to see them. Just click on 'add photos' and follow the prompts.

If you want to see the most active discussions at present, you may like to click on the 'main page' tab and they are listed in the centre of that page...just pick one and click on it. It is a large website, but with so much fun and info.

Each month we have a fun theme to inspire and motivate us. If you would like to see this month's theme, please click on this link


It is just for fun and there is no pressure to join in.  ANY squares you may like to make will be much appreciated.  :))

You may also like to check out our KASshop tab at the top of the page. There are cards and gifts for many occasions.

Here is a wonderful song created by one of our member's and her family. You might like to take the time to listen...you'll love it.


Thank you for joining us.  :))
