I Want A Dog

The Name

I Want A Dog by Pet Shop Boys

Mojo told me I had to crochet for animal charity today.

The Pads

Dimensions (Small): 15 x 16 inches
Dimensions (Big): 14 x 18 inches

My animal charity choice: Hope For Paws. However, I had no idea what size to make. A call to Hope For Paws only sealed conformity as the business norm: no one to answer the phone, the voice mail message are way too long with a multitude of instructions, etc.

The Yarn

Unknown baby yarns donated to me by CSNanaCat.

Designer Notes

Both pads were crocheted in-the-round, in single crochet. The yarn is triple-stranded and I used an M hook.

The center-out design leaves too much room for positive ease, causing mis-shaping of the rectangle over time. Next time, I will work in rows for a firmer fabric. Still, I’ll have that curling crap to contend with…grrr!

I am a big fan of the color blends that occurred with the triple stranding.
