I had a difficult time deciding which pattern to choose for our Pattern of the Month.  There are so many great ones in our KAS PATTERN BOOK, besides all the fabulous patterns and ideas in our MEMBERS' PATTERNS, TIPS, TRICKS, & TECHNIQUES.  And if rumours are to be believed, there may be some new patterns coming soon! 

In the end, however, I chose the

CHAIN STITCH SQUARE 

from the KAS Pattern Book because I recently discovered how easy it is to make a perfect 8” square using this pattern.  And a perfect 8" square is what we all aim for, isn’t it :)

Here is just a sample of the 'gorgeousness' you can create with this simple Chain Stitch Square pattern.

These were made by Elaine Jones

You can use any yarn you wish and any color or colors you choose to create a rainbow of beauty for our children's blankets.

If you post photos of your work here and in the photo section [tab at the top of this page] I will then be able to add them to our PHOTO ALBUM.

Before anyone taps me on the shoulder to remind me, I already know I've shared this clip before.  But I simply must admit that this is one of my favorite voices (I have several :), singing one of my favorite songs (I have several :), in one of my all-time favorite movies (I have several :).  And this just happens to be one of my favorite clips (I have several :) from said movie :)

And here are a couple of squares I created using one of my favorite techniques - Tunisian Crochet.  One of these squares is even in my favorite color.  Without any hints, can anyone guess which one that might be?

Your TC squares are beautiful as always, Gloria.

I have just received these 2 gorgeous blanket photos 

from JUDE SULLIVAN


WOW!  Jude, these are beyond beautiful!  They both look so warm a squishy soft, and I can just imagine the sparkle in some little eyes when Mr. Elephant is draped around a child's shoulders.  Well done!  

It's very nice to see that you got the color right, too!  Brownie points for you, girl  ... tee hee hee ... xo
