I'm sure this can be knitted, as well! Crochet blanket, easy and simple. this connects to a site in Spanish, but the pattern would be easy to do: mostly double crochet in dark gray with occasional single-crochet stripes of color.
stripes different widths according to design on fabric - looks fast, easy and cute - modern strip quilt. But with dog paws, doggie bone patterns. For a car or couch blanket to try to keep shedding to a minimum LOL Right?
