Shetland lace - Cat's Paw lapghan
Here's a lapghan I made for my mother in law. The pattern is Cat's Paw which is a very old Shetland lace pattern. It's very snuggly, has no pull, and stretches readily. Didn't need to be blocked at all. Can ya see the cat's paws in the pattern?

I tried to attach a close up picture as well; however, even though it was the right size I can only seem to attach one.

The Cat's Paw comes through on my computer, very pretty.

She should really like that, it looks great!

When asking questions ALWAYS post the name and a link for the pattern if you have it.

It looks just like a little kitty walked all over your lapghan!

What beautiful work you do! You're definitely inspiring me to try lace again!
