My Favorite Cat Blanket! Easy, Free Crochet Pattern!!!



My Favorite Cat Blanket… Easy, Free Crochet Pattern… So fun to make and accessorize with! Also, this is a great gift idea! You can do it in any color scheme or use your stash!!! My daughter swooped this up for her home!

Surprisingly so easy with a 3 row repeat (actually 2 rows, one you repeat twice!). Once you get the first few rows complete, it is a great tv watching project!

My Favorite Cat Blanket

Will the My Favorite Cat Blanket be your favorite too??? I sure hope you love my latest free crochet pattern

Materials:

Yarn ~

Lion Brand Pound of Love – 3 skeins (1020 yds each): Color A – Cinnabar Color B – Quartz Color C – White

Hook ~

H hook


Using 2 or more colors makes the cat design pop!

Tips:

  • It is super easy, there are only a few ends to weave in for this project.
  • Use two or more contrasting colors to get the best effect.
  • You can choose any color scheme to make it your own.
  • After the first 2 rows, each color is used for 3 row repeating
  • I carry my yarn up the sides instead of finishing off and work over it when doing the edging

Size ~

46″ x 60′ – This can vary due to personal tension or yarn differences
