Single Crochet Applique: Crochet Painting Part 2

Oh, I am so happy we have made it to part 2 of our Crochet Painting Crochet A Long. In this part, we will be making the vases or the plant pots of our paintings. I will provide you the patterns below for the exact appliques that I have on my painting, but I have also created a video tutorial to teach you the technique that will allow you to make your own single crochet applique.

This bunny is made with the single crochet applique technique using a few more techniques then what is explained here. There is currently no pattern for this design.

What is a Single Crochet Applique?

There are several ways to make an applique but one very easy method is to just us single crochet. A single crochet applique is worked in rows and includes increases and decreases in the first and last stitch only to manipulate its shape.

There are advanced techniques that you can use to create even more dynamic shapes with just single crochet, but for today we are going to stick with simple vase and plant pot shapes that gradually change shape.

If you are interested in learning more about making complex crochet appliques, let me know in the comments below and we can look into making a second tutorial. This technique is used to make rag dolls, cuddlers and other stuffed projects that are created by working to identically shaped pieces then sewing or crocheting them together.
