Kennel Cozies

I don't have a pet, but I often knit for people who do.  A knitting group that I belong to had a request for snuggles to donate to animal shelters. This is my interpretation, a thick blanket to line a kennel.

I used rug yarn, doubled, and knit a garter stitch rectangle. Then I picked up stitches along all sides and knit in the round, increasing 2 stitches at each corner.  After a couple of inches, I stopped increasing and knit a few more rows before binding off.  You can see where I used up a lot of different colors.  I don't think the animals will mind.

I love this idea! My little dog always looks for a rug or blanket to sit on rather than lie on a bear floor. I'm sure the shelter dogs will find comfort with one.
