This time I created in double crochet for faster turnaround. It still took just as long as the single crochet, only because I had to recall to memory my Solid Granny Square pattern. Maybe I better write it down before dementia sets in.
Red Heart Super Saver
Color: Yellow*; Content: 100% Acrylic; Weight: 4, Worsted
Those are the only two I could come close to guessing. All other yarns – red, orange, green-purple multicolor, red-blue multicolor, tan, pink, brown – were deemed by me, as worsted and man-made fibers, except the gold lace crocheted together with the black Caron.
Another animal name for an animal product and because “I got cat class and I got cat style!”
The Cush Tush
Dimensions: 14-inch diameter
This time I was determined to work in double crochet for faster turnaround. Well I finished this one is less than a day, so that’s cool! I originally started with a square but have forgotten the formula for a square design, with no holes, in-the-round. Now that I’ve made a round one, I am thinking of different shapes; maybe a star one! Color selections were random reaches into my bag o’ scraps of worsted yarn.
As I am not a fan of cats, but this is a pet pad, I am forced to start using cat name. Then again, I don’t know who’s tush, this pad will cush.
The Pet Pad
Dimensions: 18.5 x 16.75 inches
This is based on a foundation chain of 5. I need to change my corner as I am noticing puckering. I think I will definitely change from single crochet to double crochet to speed up the process of making these.
I woke this morning, free from doctor’s appointments, prepared to enjoy the world by finishing the infant afghan request. I warmed my coffee, sat down, did some rows, and decided I wanted to catch up digitally.
While I am not “the runt,” I certainly feel like it after seeing the original pictures for this post! Yikes! I just presumed they were fine, a hint to my rushing of life. Why?
Anyway, the night before guild, I found the blue square and knew that I had left over yarn from squares that required unravelling/saving from the prior set: voila! a runt pet pad.
I love the color combination: nostalgia, fifties, argyle against country gingham.
I was able to get by with a single crochet, double-stranded border without sever puckering…well, not that I remember. Ha ha ha ha!
I used up my leftovers from side one below, first. I had to add the yarns above, beginning with a double strand of the Unknown Multicolor and Unknown Pink until Unknown Pink ran out; then I just continued with the Unknown Multicolor alone.
