Ta for that Ann, will have a look. Ideally for my Blonde brain to grasp being shown is much the best way. Da Da!!!

Hi Ann, thanks for the welcome. I'm slowly making my way throught all the forum comments, it all takes time to do - you think you answered one question but then end up with another two. Debbie, Exeter.

Thank you so much for your lovely comment on my poem - one Square for an Elbow.  Appreciated hearing from you!  Your crochet work is beautiful.

Hi Barbara. I just read your comments to Jeanne. Apart from the fact that I cannot as yet crochet what you wrote could have been from me. I am also from UK-Gosport on the Hampshire coast. I have relatives along your way. Taunton. Paignton and a bit further along in Truro. At the moment I am just knitting squares. I like to be doing something in the evenings whilst watching tv.
Nice to know you.

Welcome to Knit A Square Ann from the middle of Canada! Sorry I’m abit late with this, my health’s not been brilliant lately.  Am I ever brilliant? Ahem, I’m here and sincere now.  Greetings!  Please feel free to visit Discussions or join Groups to talk about things or go to Photos to see what some members are up to.  These are in a line on top of the page, just click on them.  As for the photos, talk about yarn artistry! Try not to be intimidated, I’m a plain square person myself but it’s lovely to view the more artsy squares.  KAS is a very positive group and all these squares and sweaters and hats etc. go to help the poorest of the poor, the South African AIDS/HIV orphans who are parentless and being cared for by many good and kind folk in often desperate surroundings.  Our crocheted, knitted and sewn items can help give a child hope for the future because they are not forgotten, plus  warmth and a smile and often a toy to cuddle.  Glad you’re with us!

Hi Ann

Welcome to KAS.

Hello Ann, 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.  You have joined at a very exciting time !  Ronda and the team in S.A. have taken possession of a building to house the many squares, garments and toys that arrive from around the world.  This was made possible by our members, who responded so generously to the recent appeal. Read about it here

Check out the ‘Helpful Hints’ tab at the top of the page for information. “How Do I ????” and the “FAQ” category should answer any general questions you may have. If not, please ask. 

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. 

When you are ready to send your parcel, visit both these sites for important information.  Click Here for tips and here for postage rates.

Once your parcel has been sent, check the monthly squares lists. Every month, we list the squares, beanies and tops that have arrived in South Africa. To find the ‘Squares lists’ please click the ‘Discussions’ tab [in the bar above] then on “Tallies/Item Count” for an up-to-date listing.  We also have a ‘Drive to Fill Ronda’s KASvan’ with squares and would appreciate if you would add to this challenge. 

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 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. This month we are Celebrating Africa and the life of Nelson Mandela.  Please join us to see the lovely squares that have been made and then add a few of your own !

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. Whenever your parcel arrives, know it will be appreciated and that you are keeping children warm.

As always, making the basic square is a wonderful way to relax and still 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 at the top of the page and follow the prompts.

Enjoy !
