Sun appliqué crochet pattern

Thanks for checking out my sun appliqué crochet pattern. I’m currently working on a granny square blanket for my daughters. I plan to fill each square with a different appliqué until I have a big blanket full of the things they love most! This sun appliqué is part of my Sun showers appliqué bundle. Keep checking back on my appliqués page to crochet along.

Sun appliqué description

The sun appliqué measures 10cm. I used 2 different colours to crochet the sun appliqué. You can use your appliqué to brighten up almost any of your crochet projects, I’d love to see what you done with yours!

How it’s made

The sun appliqué crochet pattern easy skill level. You’ll need to know basic crochet stitches, increases and how to

colour change. Additionally you’ll need to know how to work into the magic ring. To make the sun appliqué I used 2 colours of DK (weight 3) yarn and a 4mm crochet hook. The whole appliqué uses just 5g (16yds) of yarn.

Abbreviations

the following abbreviations are for all the patterns in the Sun showers applique bundle.

ch – chain

MR – magic ring

sl st – slip stich

st / sts – stitch / stitches

sc – single crochet

hdc – half double crochet

dc – double crochet

tr – treble crochet

sc3tog – decrease (single crochet 3 together)

inc – increase (2 stitches in one space). use the same stich you previously used.

2hdc / 3hdc / 5hdc – increase (2/3/5 stitches in one space)

Gauge / tension

Gauge is important as everyone crochets with a different tension. Therefore, if your 2” swatch doesn’t match up you can change your hook size to suit your tension.

4mm hook – 2” x 2” = 11 rows of 9 sc

Finished size – 10cm circumference

Pattern notes

I do not count chains in my stitch count.

Numbers in brackets are the number of rows/stitches.

Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces. eg. (sc, inc) would mean sc in first stitch then inc increase in next stitch. eg. (sc x2, inc) would mean sc in first stitch, single crochet in second stitch, then increase in next stitch.

Make all colour changes at the end of the previous row.

When fastening off leave a long tail for sewing if you are attaching the appliqué to something. If you are not sewing the appliqué to anything weave in ends.
