Crocheted Pawprints in Natural Colors

set of crocheted pawprint washcloths

Natural Pawprints

Now these are a little closer to natural kitty color, but the yarn colors inspired me to food names for these natural flecked cottons! This set includes Vanilla, Pistachio and Mocha. What’s nice is that these three colors seem to be regularly available in one-pound skeins—lots of pawprints!

And although they are soft and absorbent, and I crocheted them so they’d dry quickly in your bathroom, you don’t have to use them as washcloths. I tried them out as dishcloths in the kitchen, hotpads on the table for small casseroles or even a small mat or coaster for a plate or mug. Heck, they even make cute doilies on a tabletop!

I’ve been working with a pawprint motif for a couple of years now, working out the pattern myself. The scarves, hats and neck wraps are a little time-consuming, but I’ve been wanting to offer something simple in this pawprint pattern.

Viola! a simple washcloth! I’ve just worked out three color schemes right now, solids and pink or contrasting toes, but I’ve got plenty of different cotton yarns and lots of ideas for interesting color patterns.

Each cloth is 6″ in diameter side to side, 7.5″ top to bottom, and is made of yarn-dyed cotton.

You can find this item in my shop on Etsy, where you can find the other pawprint washcloths currently for sale as well.

You can also read about them and see other colors here in my marketplace.
