Following on from the crochet hooded mouse blanket is a crafty cat.

I thought about putting a cat blanket together not long after starting on my mouse one, and i have now managed to get all the pieces finished off and attached.  I love the eye detail on this blanket, I really wanted them to stand out and using the bright green colour definitely achieved that.

 

The pattern is available over on my Etsy shop along with the mouse, frog, pig, puffin, and other animal blankets.
