Since we’re all stuck at home I decided the cat needed a second designated mat. So I crocheted a cat mat.
How this started was awhile back I wanted something cushy for a throw blanket, about 1 skein of Bernat Blanket Yarn into it and the cat wouldn’t let it go. She demanded on laying on it constantly. So needless to say the throw never got made. The cat has to win of course.
And I discovered it makes a great washable cover for the cat window seat.
Now that we’re all self isolating I decided it was a good time to make another one, as we have two window cat seats and I wanted another easy to wash cover.
But I wanted to make it a bit extra cushy so I did a made some adjustments and wrote down what I was doing this time.
I think she approves:
This is my first pattern I’ve ever written out, so go easy on me. But if you see anything that should be written a different way don’t hesitate to let me know 🙂
So if you’re stuck at home during The Great 2020 Toilet Paper Shortage like me, and want to give your furball quarantine buddy a cushy comfy mat to laze around on, go ahead and whip one up. It doesn’t take too long to make.
