Here are some very simple ideas for making blankets for cats in animal shelters. I’ve put together yarn suggestions and stitch pattern recommendations to match the weight of the yarn (either bulky or super bulky). The blankets are dense to offer the cats plenty of cushioning for warmth and softness against hard cage floors.

The patterns make for great social knitting, projects for beginners, and Guild group service projects.

These are kitty tested and approved!
