Cat Blankets

My daughter volunteers at ADOPT Pet Shelter in Naperville, IL. My daughter and I are cat lovers! A few months ago, she brought a crocheted blanket for me to see that someone crocheted for the cats and asked if I could crochet a blanket like this. I found a scarf pattern on the Lion Brand website using the rib stitch that resembled the stitch used. I crocheted a blanket and became hooked on crocheting cat blankets for ADOPT. My daughter takes pictures of the cats on the blankets and tells me the cats love my blankets. Because the blankets are small, I can finish a blanket in just a few days. I use the Lion Brand Baby Soft Yarn. Just the shelter and my friends know that I do this. I would estimate that I have crocheted 30 blankets for far for the cats.
