I am very pleased to be invited to take part in the first ever Knit Fest on November 5th 2017 at Chelsea Town Hall. Here is the blanket that I have designed for the event.

Cats & Dogs blanket by Sasha Kagan

The Cats and Dogs blanket has been designed for KNIT FOR PEACE by Sasha Kagan. Made up of 20 hand knitted squares (small and portable for knitting on the go) then finished with a crochet border. The iconic cat and dog motifs are knitted in 100% UK ALPACA, grown in the UK and spun in Devon. The blanket measures 117cm by 94cm (46" by 37") An interesting personal knit or a perfect collaborative project for a knitting group. The blanket could then be donated to a KNIT for PEACE refugee camp, the knitter's charity of choice or a lucky child.


This knitting kit includes all the wonderful yarn you will need to complete the project, the pattern and a Sasha Kagan woven label. Price £86 inc P+P or choose to purchase the pattern only for £10. Please click here for an order form (pdf)
