Big Bad Cat Blanket

The Big Bad Cat Blanket is finished and on its way to my feline great-nephew. YAY!

Since the yarn used is Plymouth Encore (80% acrylic/20% wool), I read up on how to block acrylic.

Among the suggestions are:
wash and dry according to label instructions
soak and pin and let dry
spritz and steam.

However, I didn't read anywhere of the Let A Cat Sit On It method

Obviously this time-honored method of blocking has escaped mention in current publications. Perhaps it is a folk method? This sure looks like a VERY nice cat blanket. Lucky cat.

I think the cat-sit-on-it method is the best.

What a lucky cat to have such a nice auntie.
