This free crochet anchor applique pattern is a cute little embellishment for all your summer makes!
I first crocheted this anchor for one of my squares of the Summertime Granny Squares CAL. But I’m definitely going to sew one on my summer beach bag, which I made myself a few months ago.
An anchor applique is also a great pattern to have when you need to crochet a blanket for a baby boy or anything with a navy and sailing theme.

For the written, free crochet pattern, just keep scrolling further down in the blog post!
