The Critter Knit-a-thon 2004 drew to a close the Saturday before last, and I got my critter blankets postmarked just in time. I have quite a bit of yarn odds and ends waiting to be used, so eventually I’ll make more and donate them locally through the Hugs for Homeless Animals Snuggles Project.
Here are the two blankets I sent:
Size: Approx. 36 x 38 inches
Pattern: Small version of the Easy Patterned Throw by Vera
Yarn: Red Heart Super Saver 374 Country Rose and 0400 Gray Heather (Note: two strands held together throughout, except for reverse sc border. I like using two strands because it makes the blankets nice and thick for the critters.)
Size: 18 x 18 inches
Pattern: None. All single crochet with a single crochet border.
Yarn: Body: three strands held together–two strands of pastel variegated baby pompadour, brand unknown and one strand of sport-weight bright pastel green, brand unknown. Edging: two strands held together–RH Super Saver 724 Baby Pink and a worsted-weight white, brand unknown.
