One of my new year's resolutions was to start crocheting for charity. Well cut to 6 months later and I finally did it. I found this charity called Snuggles Project and decided this was the one. I love animals, have worked with them for many years of my life and have 4 cats of my own. When I worked in a vet's office I remember the cats and dogs had these rough, bleached one too many times towels to lay on in their cages. If they didn't have a towel the cats would lay in their litter boxes. So sad! This replaces those towels with something comfier. I crocheted these snuggles without a pattern. I just chained enough to reach 15", 18" or 24" and then HDC across until all sides were the same length to make a square. If you have yarn scraps that you know you won't use this is a good way to make a homeless animal happy, clear out your stash and put your yarn to a good use!

I plan on making more with the rest of my stash and I have a feeling I will be unwinding a lot of thrift store sweaters this holiday season for even more.
