I am delighted to host another KAS monthly and there is something for everyone in this month's topic, Whatever your level of skill, let your imagination run riot with your choice of yarn, stitch, colour, pattern, texture, motif, and design to create squares, beanie hats, hand warmers and toys,
Here are just a few ideas to get your needles clicking, though members from the southern hemisphere will have their own interpretations of the seasons. Be inspired by the colours of nature, by activities, events, and by food. Below are some wonderful examples that KAS members have already contributed this year.
Green, yellow, white, purple.
Snowdrops, crocuses, daffodils, hyacinths, aubrietia, irises.
Easter eggs, Easter bonnets, chickens, bunnies and lambs, rainbows.
Cottage garden flowers – roses, delphiniums, nasturtiums, cornflowers, sweet peas. poppies in a cornfield – and lots, lots more.
Sun, sea, sand, beach balls, swimming, cricket bats, tennis racquets
Salads, ice-cream, lollies, barbecues.
Gold, russet, bronze, copper, orange, green.
Berries, leaves, pumpkins, apples, Halloween, Bonfire Night
Football, rugby, hockey
Blue & white ice colours, log fires. Christmas colours & motifs, winter sports.
I look forward to seeing your contributions on the Forum.

GREAT colour combos, Pam. I hope you will be back crocheting soon, if you aren't already. :))
Ooooooh Pam, I looked and thought pumpkins, immediately. So nice a color catch for my autumn.
Good bye Summer, Hello Autumn diagonals!! Lovely, Susan.
Beautiful seasonal representations Susan !
Two lovelies, Susan.....such pretty yarns. :))
You captured those seasons perfectly Susan!
A wonderful blanket, Patricia and so evenly crocheted . How long has it taken for you to make and sew up,35 complemenary squares? Thank you.
It's very difficult to judge timings, Susan, because I usually have several things on the go at once and even then find myself breaking off to make something crazy like a Yellow Submarine applique! I try to crochet the plain squares in a long strip where I can to cut down on sewing as much as possible.
It is impressive work, Patricia. I never thought of crocheting squares in a long strip.
Indeed, a very impressive work. Thanks, Patricia.
