Knitting pattern: Paw Print Patchwork Blanket for homeless hounds

Purly Paw Prints Patchwork Blanket - Marcel and the blanket.jpgBattersea Dogs & Cats Home is one of the charities I admire the most. They've been rescuing and rehoming dogs in London since 1860, which is a whole lot of happy animals. They're also big fans of craft, and they've just launched another lovely crafty campaign - comfort blankets for foster dogs. Huzzah!

Purly Paw Prints Patchwork Blanket - more paws.jpgBattersea got in touch with me recently to ask if I might like to design a pattern for a comfort blanket for their homeless hounds. The idea is that their foster dogs will each get a handmade blanket, which they'll take to their foster home and then to the home they are adopted into. A comforting and cosy thing to have as their own.

I was delighted to design it, and came up with the Purly Paw Print Patchwork Blanket. It's made up for four squares with four designs: a plain pawless square, a square with a small paw print, a square with a medium paw print and a square with a giant paw print. Each square represents the dogs of all shapes and sizes that Battersea rehomes.

For more info and to download the free knitting pattern you can hop over to the Blankets for Foster Dogs page on the Battersea Cats & Dogs Home website.

You can also pop over the my Whodunnknit website to come with me on a virtual tour of the home. I took a ton of photos of dogs and cats. So stand by to squeeeeeeeeeeee!

Join the campaign and knit a blanket yourself. Or club in with your stitching group and start a blanket between a few of you. Homeless hounds need your handmade hugs!
