Crochet Pattern: Kite Applique

By Emilee Gettle – 1 Comment
There is something nostalgic about making your own valentines. I love going through antique stores and admiring all the many different kinds of vintage cards, some of which include gorgeous trims. It’s not too early to start making your own valentine cards for the upcoming holiday. This quick and easy kite pattern paired with plain jane card-stock would make a great card. You could also use this pattern as an appliqué for children’s clothing and accessories. Use pastel yarn for a perfect kick-start to spring project or just add it to your handmade embellishment stash.

Skill Level:

Finished Size: 3″ (8 cm) long, 1″ (3 cm) wide

Fingering Weight Yarn (approximately 1 yard each of red and white)
Crochet Hook 7 (1.50 mm)

3 sc stitches = 1/2″ (1 cm)

Row 1: with red, ch 3, sc in second ch from hook, 2 sc in next ch, ch 1, turn: 3 sc

Row 2-3: sc in each sc across until 1 sc remains, 2 sc in last sc, ch 1, turn
Row 4-8: skip first sc, sc in each sc across, ch 1, turn

Finish off, leaving a 1 1/2″ (4 cm) tail.

Tack two pieces of white crochet thread onto the kite. Then tie three small knots down the kites tail.

    I’m not sure about the Row 1 instructions. When you chain 1 and then turn, it says 3sc. Do you do 3sc back into Row 1 or is this the start of Row 2?
