I am having fun making these little blankets using single bed Technique 179 on the double bed. To use this technique, remember you always have to reverse the colors. You will use both beds and no back bed pushers. Front lock LX and back lock N. This blanket is the same size as the owl afghan ,29 by 29 inches. I made one for my sister’s cat Autumn and my friends granddaughter’s cat Luna. I made one plain to sell in my Etsy store. However,  I did not put the little cats on the heart and the letter ” I “. I thought maybe there are too many cats

I used Joan Swanson cat designs. I designed in DAK. I used the text in DAK to make large letters so the little cats could sit on them. I then took the little cats out of the larger files and placed them on the letters. I probably spent a whole day on this design because I came up with a design and would be ready to knit and then did not like it. I did not want a border so when finishing this, the last rows are plain. There is not an issue with the beginning and ending border matching in size this way.

I will be happy to share the I love cats afghan with you( I have the little cats on the heart and letter “I” but you can remove them if you don’t like them) but it can only be used for your use. If you would like the file with your cat’s name on it, I will be willing to do it but I would need some time depending on how many people want one. I will have the directions also. It takes about 5.5ounces of the main color and 2.5 ounces of the second color.

I made this blanket because my sister’s cat has a favorite chair .It will keep the hair off of the pillow and  when company comes, she can remove it and no cat hair to cling to her company’s clothing !  It could also be used as a little lap blanket…..put it on your lap and the cat sits on top of it keeping the hair off of you. lol

    I love your idea. Looks great as always. There are a lot of cat friends I have several of those that LOVE their cats. I am thinking to myself – just a bigger mug rug – which I love all of them. Glad you got this great idea. My Passap needs a new project. Thanks for all your great work.

        My Craft skills are unfortunately very rusty. I’d have to find someone to do it for me haha

  8. Clasina Said:

    Wonderful I just have to have a dog one. I would love to make one as a head rest on the armchair she used. Thanks for the idea.

    • Hi, If you want a headrest you may want to go smaller on the size. This one is 29″ by 29 “. It was 200 rows and 168 stitches. If you want it smaller , change the stitches and rows.
      Carol 🙂
