When I started designing crochet blankets, I knew that I needed to include designs for animal lovers. The first one up, because I received so many requests is the Cat’s Meow Blanket. When the request for a cat blanket came in, I knew that it needed to feature to ever popular modern split design that you can see in my Music to My Soul blanket designs.
The design came out great, but, as I was crocheting up this cute blanket I kept thinking how much fun it would be to make an adjustment. Cat’s are so popular with the holiday of Halloween! So, I knew that I needed to make this blanket versatile and made a version with glowing eyes. Check it out!
1 Design = 2 Versions
I love when one crochet pattern can be used for multiple reasons, and this is a great example. Just swapping out the colors and adding a little something (those glowing eyes), it turned an everyday home decor item into a colorful Holiday feature piece.
You may have noticed that in my photo below that the cat if facing different directions. The blanket is 100% reversible!
Using a stitch combination and color changes as explained in the pattern leave your completed blanket with a great professional look upon completion.
Color Changing Graph patterns Scare Me!
Working up graph patterns used to scare me too! But, over the years, they have become one of my favorite things to crochet. I wanted to help those of you who may be nervous about taking these types of crochet patterns on. So, I have spent a good part of my summer creating a course that will walk you through every step of crocheting graphs and color changes.
The course has not been released yet… but is coming VERY SOON! Like September 18th-WAHOO!!! So Stay tuned.
