Pattern Description from Knitting for Peace: “Quite literally, nothing could be simpler to knit than a garter-stitch square. That’s why blankets for animals in shelters, like the ones featured here, are the perfect way for brand-new knitters to begin knitting for peace. The garter stitch also creates a thicker, cushier blanket than other knitting stitches would, which means more softness and comfort in a shelter pen.”

Finished Measurements: To accommodate Cat (Small Dog, Medium Dog, Large Dog) 14 (18, 24, 36)“ square.

Yarn notes: The pattern calls for approximately 200 (300, 500, 1100) yards worsted-weight acrylic yarn or 150 (225, 400, 850) yards bulky-weight acrylic yarn.

Sample in book shown in Plymouth Encore (75% wool/25 % acrylic)

Notions: Yarn needle.

Additional Gauge:12 sts = 4” (10 cm) in garter stitch, using larger needles and bulky-weight yarn (row gauge is not crucial).
