Hugs for Homeless Animals (The Snuggles Project)
Someone may have posted this here before but this is a group that knits/crochets/quilts blankets for shelter animals. Several of us in my greyhound adoption group take part in this and it's a really worthy cause. You can also check in your own area about donating blankets to your local animal shelters. There are several free pattern suggestions on the website as well.

I'm in the process of knitting a medium size dog blanket for a shelter I found through Snuggles and using one of the Snuggles patterns. I hope to get a large one done before the end of fall and drop them both off.

Thank you for the links. I must get involved with this project, at least locally.

I love this one too. This is how I got my daughter to at least let me TRY to teach her to knit. I'm thinking I need to get another one started. I'm having issues with a blanket I'm working on and I think some good mindless knitting for a while might just be the ticket.

I've posted this question on the crochet form but thought I'd stick it here as well since I'm anxious to get an answer.
--------------------------------------------------
This questions involves the pattern for the crochet snuggle tubbie.
OK, I've just started and I'm ALREADY confused! I hate that! So, here's most of the pattern:

1. Form a ring, ch3, 9 dc in ring; join.
2. Ch3 (first dc), 2 dc in each stitch around; join.
3. Ch3, *dc in same st, dc in next st,* repeat between *s around; join.
4. Ch3, *dc in same st, dc in next 2 sts,* repeat between *s around; join.
5. Ch3, *dc in same st, dc in next 3 sts,* repeat between *s around; join.
6. Ch3, *dc in same st, dc in next 4 sts,* repeat between *s around; join.
7. Ch3, *dc in same st, dc in next 5 sts,* repeat between *s around; join.
8. Ch3, *dc in same st, dc in next 6 sts,* repeat between *s around; join.
9. Ch3, *dc in same st, dc in next 7 sts,* repeat between *s around; join.
10. Ch3, *dc in same st, dc in next 8 sts,* repeat between *s around; join.
11. Ch3, *dc in same st, dc in next 9 sts,* repeat between *s around; join.


On Row 1, it doesn't say how many to chain to form a ring, so I chained 5.

Row 2 went ok.

Here's the problem: the next rows say "dc in same st, dc in next st (next 2 sts, next 3 sts, etc, etc).

Somebody please explain this to me! I'm not "seeing" it. I'm sure it's pretty easy but this visual learner is stuck.

Thanks.
