Girly Pink and Purple Pawprints!

Girly Pink and Purple Pawprint Set

I was so inspired by the little Dora the Explorer couch—formerly my great niece’s but now a perfect kitty bed—that I decided to adopt the colors from it for another set of crocheted pawprint washcloths.

Besides that, I LOVED pink and purple when I was growing up. My bedroom had bright pink walls and a hot pink shag carpet, I made myself a hot pink Dazzleaire afghan with as much of any shade of bright pink, lilac and purple as I could fit in there. I can relate to these girls and their pink and purple!

Light pink, bright pink and violet purple! I designed this set of pawprints for my great-nieces and all the other little girls who love PINK and PURPLE as much as I do (and always did). Let’s hear it for Girl Power!

So this set is for the little girl in your life, or maybe the little girl in your heart!

You can find this set in my Etsy shop.

You can also browse other colors of pawprints and other crocheted washcloths in my Crocheted Washcloth Collection on Etsy. I’m working on new color schemes for the pawprints every day!


Crocheted Pawprints in Natural Colors

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.
