Ribbed Kitten Blanket
Blanket number two for our new kitten, Peanut. I'd hoped she'd cozy down and curl up on like she does on the other one, but this one seems to have become more of a battle blanket. :)
Stitches are all done through the back loops only, so it appears ribbed. The body is striped. The edging is done in the same two colours as the body, with extra stitches every so often, so has a somewhat ruffled appearance.
- machine washable worsted yarn in two colours, about 100 grams of each (3 1/2 or 4 oz), (yarn is available at
- crochet hook of suitable size, I used 4.00 mm
- gauge is not crucial, but if you work too loosely it won't appeared ribbed
- finished size is about 14 by 17 1/2 inches (35 x 45 cm) square
- Using main colour, chain 61.
- Sc in back loop of 2nd ch from hk, sc in back loop of each ch across, ch 1, turn.
- Repeat last row 5 more times with main colour.
- Repeat last row 4 times altogether with contrast colour.
- Continue alternating 6 rows of main colour and 4 rows of contrast colour, ending with your 9th stripe of your main colour.
- Continuing with main colour, sc in each st around all edges of blanket, working 2 sc in corner sc's. Change to contrast colour, work 2 sc in each sc around. End off.
- Carefully and securely work in and hide the ends of your yarn. Eating yarn can be very dangerous to animals!
- This size will suit a kitten or small puppy, you'll need to make it larger for an adult, and it'll take more yarn.
- It's very important to get all yarn ends hidden away securely. When ingested, yarn can get entangled in an animal's intestines and become a life threatening emergency. While you're at it, please take the time to hide your stash safely away from your littlest friends.
