Year of the Dog Blanket Squares
We celebrated the Chinese Year of the Dog in 2018, but every year is a great year to honor our canine companions. Knit a special blanket either for your own fur kids or for those who are still awaiting their Forever Homes in the arms of rescue agencies.
These afghan squares are focused on the woodland creatures and nature around us. With a ‘plain’ square to fill in the blanks, these will be colorful blankets for dogs and cats.
These squares use various knitting techniques. Knit them all or choose your favorites to include in your project.
This is a fun way of giving back to those rescue agencies that have provided us with our feline and canine companions.
With the exception of the filler square, all square patterns are charted.
Only small amounts of worsted, sport, or DK weight yarns are needed: About 55 to 70 yds per square. Those small balls of yarn in your stash make a fun way to give warmth to our furry companions.
