I am making some pet snuggles each month with my extra acrylic stash. I plan to donate them to the Humane Society near my place for them to use with pets awaiting adoption. I joined up a group on Ravelry that is making snuggles for pet shelters. I thought it was a great way to use up my scraps and to do something nice :) In January I made six snuggles (the pictures are posted here), in February I made five snuggles (the pictures are posted here), and so far in March I have made two snuggles. They are all approximately fifteen inches square and are classified as small snuggles.
The pattern I am using is pretty basic:
Using a 6mm crochet hook and two strands of worsted weight acrylic yarn together Chain 44. Double crochet in the 4th chain and in each subsequent chain. At the end of the row ch 2 (or ch 3 - I need to use ch 2 to keep my rows even - ch 3 doesn't work for me...) turn and dc in each stitch across. Continue this until 22 rows are complete and finish up. Easy peasy!! Or adjust your stitch count to get to a good size. For me - these instructions give me a 15 inch square :)
Here is a picture of my first March snuggle:
