"I like that particular blue, too. It says summer to me. Do you have a favourite blue?
The blue umbrella was my second attempt at doing a circular motif, and using a slightly different joining technique. As luck would have it, I have since found…"
"When I started that square I had plans to do more, thinking that the small coloured blocks would be a quick and simple way to do beach huts...UNTIL I decided that gable ends were really needed, and then how about doors, and what about outlining the…"
"Linda, your TC and cro-knitting is just soooo creative. I love it! I like how you've added the fuzzy white yarn in #3 for surf. Very effective :)) And I especially love your 'beach balls/umbrellas' (kinda drawn…"
"We called them deckchairs - I still do as a matter of fact - and my Nana had one with a sort of built in sunshade at the top! I had forgotten about that! We also had wind breaks, like a length of the same cloth as the deckchairs…"

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.
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.
