Continuing my current charity crochet/knitting obsession – here is a blanket square I made to send to knit-a-square.com. Thirty five 8″ squares make a blanket for a S. African Aids orphan. The February challenge on the square circle forum is for members to make squares with a transportation theme. Well, challenge to me is like a red rag to a bull. I have made three so far but will have to stop for a while as I have 10 days to make the wee man a Dr Who themed quilt for his Birthday. I have written up this pattern as a pdf so click here bikesquarepattern if you would like to make one for yourself or for knit-a-square. Please don’t sell the pattern or sell products made from the pattern unless the proceeds go to knit-a-square.
Here’s last week’s squares – the traffic lights square is mostly crochet with a knitted smooth tarmac road; and, the car square is felt applique on a knitted square with crochet border.
