Crochet Pirate Applique Set ... swords, hooks, spyglass,maps and more!


The Pirate Applique Set
I made this pattern set for my youngest son because he is in love with pirates. I have been making him a blanket he insisted on having because his older brother has one so why not. I'm almost finished with it when he informs me it needs to be a yo-ho blanket (pirate blanket)! I was not about to frog or start a new blanket as I am so close to completing it, so I came up with all these little appliques to put on it, and I am very happy with they way they came out! Hope you enjoy them as much as my son and happy hooking!
