Just as it is for humans, wool is great for pets. Not only does it not hold on to that wet dog smell, but it is great for pets with skin allergies or arthritis. It is also great for that new puppy who just doesn’t want to sleep through the night. Touch Yarns has created a great knitting pattern for a pet blanket for us to share with you. This will be a great project for you – and, as you can see in the video, pets love it. Please note that, if you are knitting this for a dog, you will need to leave the popcorn stitches out (especially if your pet thinks blankets are a great post-dinner treat).
