Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl

Pattern Description:

I designed this to be knitted and donated to a school's dinner auction. I used their school colors and a paw print logo I created for the "Wildcats." It was very easy to knit, using mainly a stockinette stitch. The border is a modified moss stitch using only knit and purl stitches as well.

If not for the duplicate paw print stitches sewn on afterward, this would be a totally beginning knitter's project. It came out beautiful, but the only difficult and time consuming portion was getting the paw prints the way I wanted them. I'm not a very good chart follower!! I do; however, love the way it turned out!

I used Loops & Threads "Impeccable" acrylic yarn to complete the afghan.

By the way, a smaller version would make a wonderful donation to an animal shelter.
