Whenever I mention appliques, I get the same request – musical notes! So here’s a set of Music Note Crochet Appliques to help you keep the hooky beat!
These notes were made to the same scale as the Moogly Crochet Alphabet, Numbers, Punctuation, etc. So feel free to mix and match for your own custom creations! Remember to leave a long tail for sewing on later, if needed.

Round 1: Make a magic circle, ch 1, sc 6 into the ring; join with a sl st. (6 sts)
Round 2: Ch 1, 2 sc in each st around; join with a sl st. (12 sts)
Round 3: Ch 1, *sc in the next st, 2 sc in the next st; rep from * around, join with a sl st. (18 sts)
Row 4: Ch 14, skip the ch closest to the hook, sc in next 12 chs (last ch remains unworked); break yarn and sew to round 3 as for a seamless finish.
Ch 25, skip the ch closest to the hook, [sc in the next ch, 2 sc in the next ch] 6 times, sc in the last 12 chs; break yarn and sew 1st st to stitch #20 or as shown above.
Make quarter note as show above, then:
Join to chain side (right) in the 2nd st from the top of the vertical line; ch 12, skip the ch closest to the hook, sc in the next ch, 2 sc in each of the next 2 chs, sc in the next 4 chs, sc2tog, sc in the last 2 chs, sl st in the next (top) stitch of the vertical line; break yarn and finish off.
Make 2 notes as desired using patterns above, then:
Row 1: Join to the top of the vertical line of one of the notes (the turning chain, or skipped ch), ch 1, sc in the same st, extend by FSC 10 sts, sc in the top of the vertical line of the 2nd st; turn. (12 sts)
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in each st across; break yarn and finish off. (12 sts)
For a Sixteenth Note/Semiquaver, add another flagged piece, below the first in the Eighth Note above. For a Whole Note/Semibreve, click here for the “o” in the lowercase alphabet, or make the Half Note/Minim starting with a ch of 12. For a flat, flip the Half Note over, and for a sharp, click here for the “hashtag” in the punctuation set.
I hope you enjoy this set of Music Note Appliques! I can’t wait to see how you use them to express your own creativity!
