Crochet appliques are great for embellishing things – hats, bags, tops, onsies, you name it! And there are hundreds of free patterns for crochet appliques out there – many of which are for flowers, hearts, and other beautiful things you’ve likely seen before. So for this roundup I’ve found 10 crochet applique patterns that are new and different – all free!
After last week’s Doctor Who roundup, the next logical fandom to cover was Harry Potter! The Harry Potter series was a huge hit with both the kids and adults here. Our youngest two are making their way through the books now, and the movies have all been watched dozens of times. And as a crocheter and knitter, I couldn’t help but notice all the fantastic yarny items worn by the characters! The movies and books, as well as the costumes, have inspired entire books of patterns, as well as some free ones. So I’m pleased to present 10 free Harry Potter crochet patterns!
There are brand new babies in the extended family, and that means a new crochet blanket pattern! So I gathered together soft cotton and a beautiful overlapping blocks pattern to create the Leaping Stripes and Blocks Blanket. The colors seem to move up and down the blanket in a fun zigzag pattern, and the overlapping boxes create a yummy rhythmic pattern to crochet. One row just leaps over the other – and I love the way it looks!
