The simple circle-within-a-square pattern is a great stash buster. It’s meets donation requirements for Knit-A-Square, an organization that distributes crochet and knit blankets (made from 8”/20 cm squares), hats, and toys to children in South Africa. It is part of my monthly charity spotlight feature which highlights organizations that accept handmade donations.
