Warning About Crocheting for Pets
There are some really great reasons to crochet cute patterns for your pets.
But there are also some legitimate reasons not to.
First of all, pets are animals and frequently get dirty. They may be muddy from outside or shed like crazy (like Jersey-Boy did).
Make sure to crochet your pet projects with yarn that is washable. The last thing you want to do is make a gorgeous blanket for your kitty cat only to realize you made it with a hand wash only wool.
Crochet those projects in inexpensive yarn (like a 100% no pill acrylic) that can be thrown in the washing machine and dryer.
Serious Dangers About Yarn and Pets
One important danger is that yarn can be a serious hazard for pets.
If you have a cat or dog that likes to chew on everything, do not crochet them anything.
Yarn can get down into their intestines and wreak havoc. It’s not worth the risk, especially if you have a pet that loves to chew on everything, like a puppy.
I didn’t realize at the time that this would be the last birthday we would get to celebrate with our beloved Jersey-Boy.
When I designed this pattern he was getting ready to turn eleven and we wanted to celebrate that special milestone.
This simple crochet pattern is FREE on my blog and I also have a video tutorial for how to make it for your very own special pets.
Granny Square Blanket
Pets love blankets and humans love making them.
Jersey-Boy loved being wrapped up in a handmade blanket. He slept with one every single night and that brings me comfort right now.
A crib sized blanket is the perfect size for a beloved pet, not too big, not too small.
This blanket is from the Sunburst Granny Square Tutorial from Bella Coco Crochet. It’s perfect because you can make it any size and add any pretty border.
