This month KAS is looking to the skies for inspiration for our squares, blankets, hand-warmers, beanies and cuddly soft toys.

Planets, stars, the sun,

the moon, rainbows,

clouds, and anything in the sky.

Then there is the Zodiac.

Chinese New Year Symbols

And so much more to explore!

 Be as creative as you can be.  Remember, there are appliques and all sorts of techniques that you can use to embellish your squares and blankets, beanies and hand-warmers.

Also, the most important square to any KAS blanket is the Plain Jane, PJ, as it is the perfect background for all other squares.

We can not wait to see your amazing creations.

Our pattern of the Month is from the KAS Pattern Book.

Well done you, Sue!! Great hats, but the rainbow one is....WOW!!

Terrific!   Two more warm and happy children.    

Hi Susanne Leverton, my knit hat is like this.

I used 12 ply - much too big.

Hello Kia, thank you for showing us your hat; it is so neat! A child will love it’s colour and warmth :))

Your hat looks lovely, Kia.  :))

Hi Kia. I am currently finishing one in 12 ply. If your dimensions are25 cm by 40 cm it should be fine. Those dimensions fitted my 5 yo grandson

A gorgeous hat!  I love that color, and your very attractive and neat edge.   Just terrific.

A quartet of sky related squares.   (Not noticeable in the star square, but the yarns have silver and gold sparkle threads for extra twinkle.)

Gosh Sharon you're very clever - these have super detailing X

Thanks, Karen, but I just follow the patterns that I find online, and use yarns from a fairly large stash (which I keep trying to down-size, but so far not doing too well).

Love these squares.

The upper left really catches my attention.  Beautiful colors and I see just a bit of sparkle.

Thanks Amy … maybe that summer sun pattern is just right for your colors?

"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."
