This is an easy beginner crochet pattern that requires worsted (medium) weight yarn and a size K crochet hook. These blankets are a Quick to Stitch project and the pattern includes complete instructions and color photos in a pdf file.
The finished size of your pet blanket will be 19 inches across by 19 1/2" tall. I also include easy instructions for you to customize your blanket and make it as large as you wish.
The entire blanket is crocheted with double yarn strands for added thickness and warmth. I recommend using acrylic yarn, which is very easy care (machine wash and dry), and your blankets will become even softer with repeated washings. I have blankets I made for my own pets that have lasted many years.
These are great for covering furniture and your pet will appreciate having her very own blanket. I like to keep one in the car for traveling and they can also be used in a crate or as a pet food mat. Cats especially love to curl up and sleep on these!
