Well, it's not really a "pattern" per se, more like a simple garter stitch blanket.

We use 2 strands of cotton or acrylic yarn held together throughout, and cast on 72 stitches. 5 knitters take turns knitting 5 inch sections of the snuggle. You can see the blog for the Oddball Pet Snuggles here: http://oddballsnuggles.blogspot.com/

I've attached 2 photos of our Snuggles. One is completed, and the other is in progress after two knitters have worked on it.

Those are quite beautiful! It seems that cats love them already lol
I like how you're doing it, i personally can't send my projects places because I don't really have the money. I am 15, in highschool, and I think I am developing Carpal Tunnal, or something... But i applaud you!

This is a good way to use up all those odds and ends that are too small to knit anything with but you don't have the heart to throw away. Cats love bright colors. When I was first attempting to do fair isle knitting, I practiced by making them sleeping blankets.

These animal blankets are a great way to use up yarn that's too small to make anything but that you don't have the heart to throw out. You can knit stripes with the remnants. Cats love color. When I first started doing fair isle knitting, I practiced by making them sleeping blankets. They have some of the prettiest in town, if I do say so myself. lol

Will be happy to join you in another month or two. Right now, I'm busy knitting mittens for my local elementary school. The staff says kids are in the office looking for mittens every day. We just had a big snow storm yesterday and I dropped off several pair which were greatly appreciated. My cats love blankets knit in all garter stitch with soft homespun boucle yarn. Hope that helps you.

Thanks! And I bet those children are happy for those mittens! They are probably making the other children want to pretend that they dont have mittens, so they can get ones like yours! Thanks from me and most likely, from those children also!

Thank you for the clairfication and the idea. That is such a nice way to use up yarn. I know my little furry friend wouldn't care if his colors didn't match perfectly.

Nope! And if there are strings that you cut in the middle of the work, all you have to do with those is make them all on one side of the piece, and make that the inside, creating anouther one, and sewing them together, making them a little softer! You can probably stuff them if you want to also!
