Crochet Paw Print Pattern

crochet paw print pillow

This corner to corner (C2C) Paw Print Pillow pattern would make a great addition to your home decor.  You can change the colors to customize for your style. Or, you could make 12 of the paw graphs and sew them together (3 x 4) to make a heart afghan that would measure approximately 45 inches by 60 inches. I hope you like my pattern!

After you finish the last square you are going to continue crocheting around the border.

Border: ch 1, in the side of each square you will make two sc and in each corner you will sc-ch 2-sc.

Crochet Paw Print Pillow Back Cover

I repurposed a pillow cover I had from my Heart Pillow which used Dusty Grey. I recommend using Charcoal.

Make a back using the same pattern as the front of the pillow but without the color changes.

Assembly

Lay your pillow covers with the WRONG sides facing each other. The RIGHT sides will both be facing outward. Using your tapestry needle and Minty yarn, sew the covers together through the single crochet borders. After you have sewn three of the four sides together, stuff with a pillow insert or Poly Fil. Sew the last side.

You are done! I hope you enjoyed this pattern. Tag me on Instagram (@lovable_loops) or Facebook to share your pictures with me.
