Each summer, I make dog and cat beds to take to the shelter.
I never know how many I am going to make, it just depends on how busy I am and if I have supplies.
Last year, I made these beds because someone sent me a box of fabric remnants.
This year, my neighbor, who is an animal lover, gave me a giant box of yarn.
I've got a long way to go but so far have a few beds done...
and they are Leo approved...
Here is how I make them:
Size "Q" hook
3 skeins of washable acrylic yarn
Take the 3 skeins of yarn and hold strands together. (This makes a nice thick pad for kitty to relax on.)
Chain 36, turn
Row 1:Half Double crochet in the 2nd chain from the hook and in each chain across. You'll have 35 half double crochet stitches
* Continue Row 1 until the bed is wide enough to accommodate your kitty.
Finish off, weave in ends.
