Welcome to KAS from Knoxville, TN!  So happy to have you join us in our efforts to wam the orphans and vulnerable children of South Africa.

Hello Elizabeth, 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.  As the name implies, we focus on sending 8” x 8”(20 cm x 20 cm) squares to be made into blankets to provide comfort to the many children in need.

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 about:

- Questions you may have (FAQs),

- How to navigate the forum,

- Postage information and

- Learn when your squares arrived in South Africa!

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 November challenge is Toys and Games and Teddy bears ! Do you have a special memory of a favourite toy or game from your childhood? That could be a wonderful inspiration for squares!

At the same time we are running a second challenge: KAS Reaches Great Heights for the Children has us making squares to reach the height of Table Mountain in South Africa.  That is 178,000 squares !   Click here to join us by adding your squares and a photo, if possible, to the total.

 If you are interested in joining any of our challenges, please note: Your parcel does not need to arrive in South Africa before the end of the challenge month.  Many of us use sea-mail and find parcels take between 6-10 weeks to arrive. Since parcels are arriving all the time, please use the most inexpensive way to send.  Whenever your parcel arrives, it will be appreciated.

Making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and 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.

Enjoy !

CREATECARE GLOBAL

"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."

Our thanks to CreateCare Global for supporting the Square Circle Forum and helping to spread the wonderful work that KAS does.
