Cat Safety Blanket Free Crochet Pattern



Happy Tuesday my friends!

Here we are for our weekly appointment and a brand new crochet project!


How did you like working with the super velvety chenille Cover Story Yarn? Did you fall in love with its softness as well?


If you enjoyed creating the Dino Blanket, I'm sure you'll have a great time stitching up this super cute Cat lovey! Isn't it just adorable?

The little details, as the pads on the paws, the inner ears and the nose are worked with a thinner chenille yarn...and the result is just great!
