Tapestry Crochet Paw Print Pattern


These lovely little squares really do make the perfect small projects for restless hands.


If you're like me, most of my crochet never makes it into a bigger project but brings me just as much joy from aimlessly hooking up something small and pretty.


These little squares won't take you long and are beginner friendly - you only need to know how to make a single crochet and carry your yarn.


You'll need:


3.5mm/E-4 Crochet Hook

2 colours of Light Worsted/DK yarn

Tapestry needle for sewing in ends



For this pattern, you'll need to carry the colour not in use and change colour on the last yarn over of the previous stitch. When all stitches of a colour have been worked for that row, drop that colour yarn; there's no need to carry it to the end of the row.


Beginning '1 ch' does not count as a stitch.


Abbreviations:

ch - chain

st - stitch

sc - single crochet

RS - right side

WS - wrong side

MC - main colour

CC - contrast colour

Chart:



Make as many squares as you like and add them into bigger blankets or make multiples in different colours and join together a patchwork of paw prints.🐾



I hope you've enjoyed this mini make and pin it somewhere ready for a rainy afternoon.
