Does your dog love to sit by you on the couch? My dog follows me everywhere and loves to sit right next to me on the couch while I crochet.
I thought it would be a great idea to crochet a dog blanket to cover the couch where she lays.
My husband and I adopted Daisy about 10 years ago from a shelter. She was our first “baby” after purchasing a house.
Since the day she came to live with us, Daisy has been my little shadow. Always following me everywhere I go.
Every day is a new journey for Daisy. She may not travel outside our property, but every day she can choose her own adventure. She knows the boundaries of our large yard and anytime we go out, she starts off on a journey to see what sort of animals have crossed into her domain since the last time she was out.
She happily trots across our yard investigating, all the while keeping an eye on me and knowing my location.
She quietly lays by my side on the couch as I make crochet projects after crochet projects. So I decided a soft blanket just for her to cover the couch would be perfect.
She loves soft things and I knew that Bernat’s blanket yarn would be the softest yarn for this pattern. Even while I was crocheting the blanket, she was trying to cuddle up with it.
Depending on your dog’s size, you may want to alter this pattern. I made it fit Daisy (she is a medium-sized dog) should she want to stretch out and long enough that it drapes over the top and seat of the couch. This way it protects the couch.

Dark Grey Yarn – this will be the border:

On the sides of the blankets, place your single crochets in the chain 3 spaces of the blanket rows. The tops and bottom of the blanket, you will place one single crochet stitch into one stitch of the row. After 2 stitches, skip 2 by chaining. When you made it around the blanket, slip stitch to join.
