Baby Kitty, Patchwork Throw Blanket
Everyone loves Kitties! Make your kitty in shades of white and cream, variations of orange or even shades pink! Does your kitty have blue, green or yellow eyes? What about his or her collar? Use up your scraps and make it a rainbow! The yarn amounts provided are guidelines. Maybe you have 7 shades of purple in your stash that you want to use for the background. Group similar shades together and substitute them for one of the colors in the pattern. For example, if you have two similar shades of Lilac, both could be combined and used for your BL (Background Light) squares. Get creative! Get creative, mix and match your leftover yarn and turn it into something beautiful (important, do not mix wool with cottons or acrylics as they won’t wash the same). Pattern written for Vanna’s Choice yarn but any worsted weight or aran yarn will work.
