For millennia, the humble square has been one of the most common geometric shapes, used to represent order and rationality. It can seem boring and predictable with its right-angled corners and equal sides, making it familiar and stable. But squares can give us so much more.
Squares provide a strong foundation which form building blocks for a community. They give us balance and equality which guide us to fairness and honesty. Squares enclose us in a safe place, giving us security. Above all, squares help us build a blanket for a child who would otherwise have none.
Square up with Knit-a-square so we can fight for the cold and forgotten, and provide warmth, comfort and, most of all, the knowledge that a child is beloved.
