Cutest Kittens Blanket

Honestly…. Cutest Kittens Blanket?

Need I say more?

My family is nearly obsessed with kitties of all types. One of my first designs was this Amigurumi Kitten in 2010. Pictured are two of the first three original ones I made.

Naturally, when my son saw this blanket, I knew I had to make it. At the time, I had loads/ bags/ drawers full of Red Heart Super Saver and I let him pick the colors (listed below) and the order he wanted them in. (I was nervous about the colors, but he did a great job choosing the colors for the Striped Stash Buster Blanket so away I went.)

I'd found a few patterns out there for this Kittens Blanket; I was assured it has been around for quite some time. I chose to work down 2 rows instead of one to make the ‘front legs' a little longer thinking the kitties would be more defined.

This pattern works up very quickly and is instantly gratifying. Working down two rows as opposed to one gives the impression of being a granny square. Maybe it's the size of the opening that's left, but I just love it. Super simple and comforting in a repetitive way; wonderful for those times you just want to crochet and not have to count. Since we used strictly Red Heart, the colors worked really well together. Isn't it wild?

We love this blanket!

What do you think?

I have made the kitty blanket before, ages ago. Have always loved the pattern. About the time I made the kitty blanket, I remember seeing one in the same manner, but it was elephants. Have you ever seen that one? Would like to get that pattern or try to figure out how to make it. Thanks for any ideas.

I love the kitty blanket!! We are a cat family, and I think a stash-busting kitty blanket would look great draped over our couch! :D
