Easy Knit Snuggle
This perfect first project for beginning knitters uses 2 strands of machine washable acrylic or cotton worsted weight yarn held as 1 strand. Also great for busting the acrylic stash of knitters who have moved onto luxury fibers.
from The Snuggles Project website
"The Snuggles Project was founded by our president Rae French, in 1996. ...the security blankets are called 'Snuggles'.
"...most shelter animals are kept in areas with stainless steel braces and hard plastic flooring or even bare concrete floors. The Snuggles would allow them to have a little reprieve from the coldness of the pen they are kept in.
"....while you are knitting, crocheting or sewing your Snuggles, please respect the originality and the future of the project and give credit where credit is due."
