About the Pattern

Knit this cute cat blanket for the cat lover in your life!

Any cat owner knows that cats have minds of their own. The Herding Cats Blanket shows what happens if you try to herd cats… they just do their own thing. Cute cats cover both sides of this warm, reversible blanket.

Double knit, the blanket is fully reversible, featuring opposite color schemes on each side. Full instructions are included for the double knitting technique.

The pattern includes two sizes — baby blanket and throw blanket. The finished size of the baby blanket is approximately 37” x 40” (94 cm x 101.6 cm). The finished size of the throw blanket is approximately 51” x 55” (129.5 cm x 139.7 cm). You could even make a larger version with more repeats of the charts. The photos in this pattern feature the throw blanket size.
