Free Pattern Friday: Anchor Applique

I love anchors as much as the next person, but (like most things I write patterns for) I have a hard time finding a pattern for one that I like. I would rather have appliques worked all in one piece than have to sew parts together and then sew them on a project.

I meant to post this pattern on Friday, but time got away from me.

Anchor Applique

Materials Needed:
H (5.oomm) hook
Yarn Needle
Project in need of Anchor Applique

Yarn Needed:
Worsted Weight Yarn in any color

CH – chain
SC – single crochet
HDC – half double crochet
HDC2TOG – half double crochet two together
DC – double crochet
SS – slip stitch
ST - stitch

Note: HDC2TOG = YO, insert hook in next ST, Pull up a loop, YO, insert hook in next ST, Pull up a loop, YO, Pull through all loops on hook.


Step 1: CH 3, work 9 HDC in 3rd CH from hook (2 skipped CH do not count as first HDC). Do not SS to join!
Step 2: CH 12, DC in 3rd CH from hook and in each CH, SS in first HDC of anchor top, turn.

Cross bar
Step 3: SS in first DC, CH 6, HDC in 3rd CH from hook and in each CH, SS in the top of the next DC and across it (2 SS across, 1 SS in CH ST). (At this point you should be on the other side of the DC. You could fasten off yarn and reattach on the other side if you would prefer) 
CH 6, HDC in 3rd CH from hook and in each CH, SS in DC before Step 3, turn.

Step 4: SS in next 9 DC, CH 8, HDC in 3rd CH from hook, HDC in each of the next 4 CH, 2HDC in next CH, SS in each of the skipped CH from Step 2 and in first DC of Step 2 (You may not need to SS in the DC. It just depends on how your stitches line up)
CH 9, HDC in 3rd CH from hook, HDC in each of the next 4 CH, HDC2TOG, SS in 2nd DC of Step 2. Fasten off leaving a long tail for sewing.

Anchor measures 4 inches in length and 4.5 inches at its widest point.

Happy Friday and Happy Independence Day!

It's been a while since I posted a free pattern. I finally have a day off today to share one with all of you.

If you've been on Pinterest, I'm sure you've seen the crochet top and tulle bottom dresses. I fell in love the first time I saw one. I haven't been able to find a pattern I love so I thought I'd write one and share it with all of you. I hope it's easy to read and not confusing.

Flower Crown Animal Hats

I don’t know about you all, but I am ready for spring. I am ready for warm weather, the Easter season, my birthday, my husband’s birthday, and our wedding anniversary. (Okay, maybe I just realized how busy we are going to be in a month or two.)
Spring fever gave me the inspiration to make the animal hats I have been wanted to make since the beginning of January. I’ve seen such cute knitted versions on Pinterest, but I hadn’t come across a crochet pattern for any of them. What do I do when I can’t find a pattern? Come up with one myself.
I hope you all enjoy making them as much as I did.

Flower Crown Animal Hats

I had all of these in my stash and I’m sure other worsted weight yarn i…

Flower Crown Unicorn Hat.

Do you ever have an idea that will not leave you alone until you execute it? That’s how I feel about this new hat pattern. I have two orders I should be working on, but I couldn’t focus on either one of them until this hat pattern came to fruition.
After the release of my Flower Crown Animal Hats, I heard the suggestion of releasing a child size hat pattern. So here it is. I am still working on the adult size pattern as well as the idea tomake a more masculine version. Hopefully, I will be able to bring that to you next week.
