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.

I have been knitting for 58 years and since the grandchildren arrived have been knitting daily. I decided I wanted to create easy predominantly seamless knitting projects because I love knitting in the round, and more important I hate to sew pieces together!
I have had many wonderful comments from knitters who have created items from my patterns and like their finished projects, but should you come across a flaw or something that doesn't seem quite right in the instructions, I hope you will contact me! Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any of your questions or concerns.
You are free to sell your finished items, but please give me credit for the pattern.
Thank you and happy knitting!
