Paw prints are fun motifs to place on crocheted items. There are any number of ways of crocheting them, either as part of an item, or an applique that can be added on afterwards. The nice thing about the latter type is that they are a project in and of themselves, and can be applied to just about any surface, for example through stitching, sewing or gluing on. A hot glue gun will be your friend there!
Meandering Paw Prints over the Rainbow Bridge Free Crochet Pattern
One way to make them is a paw-shaped hole, regularly spaced on a surface, like in this rainbow paw blanket. Here, they are arranged like a bunch of puppies left their tracks up the blanket. The blanket is made of simple stitches and works up quickly. Of course you can make this pattern in monochrome as well, or in other color combinations if rainbows don’t fit your current decor.
A link to free patterns is included under the photos.
