KASAD31: Finito

Well, what a ride! Here were are at the end of the month. There are now 31 patterns to make 20 cm (8 inch) squares. You can use these to make scarfs, blankets or as knitting for charity. Remember that Knit-a-square is desperate for squares to help orphaned and vulnerable children, as are many other charities.

I know that I did fall behind in the supposed-to-be-every-day posts, my apologies. Whilst I like to keep the blog current, I do not want to make it a priority over other things which are more important to my family and me at this time. This blog was supposed to be something fun for me to share ideas and interact with others, not a source of stress and late nights. I have kept it as such. I've backdated the posts so that they will make sense in the future.

Thank you one and all for sharing this journey with me. May brought 2613 page views for this blog. That's 2613 opportunities to craft for one's own sanity and enjoyment, to knit for loved ones or for charity and to connect with others.

Please let me know what you thought about the KASAD project in the comments, I would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks again for coming along for the ride!

KASAD31: Finito

- 8 ply yarn in three colours.
- 6 mm knitting needles
- yarn needle to weave in ends, scissors to cut yarn.

Skills and difficulty
Beginner - intermediate knitter

1. Using C1, cast on 3 stitches
2. Knit two stitches, then place the stitch marker on the 'used' needle.
3.Yarn over (wrap the yarn around the needle so that you can knit into it on the next row which increases 1.) You should now have 2 stitches either sides of the stitch marker.
4. Knit until the stitch marker then move the stitch marker to the next needle.
5.Yarn over to increase 1, then knit until the end of the row.
6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 until there are 20 ridges (40 rows). End C1.
7. Change to C2. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for 2 ridges (4 rows). End C2.
8. Change to C3. Repeat steps 4 and 5 for 8 ridges (16 rows) or until square is 19 cm (just less than8 inches)
