Little Pear Crochet Applique

The pattern that I would like to share today is an easy and quick pattern for a cute, Little Pear Crochet Applique.

I recently fell in a loop of crocheting little fruit appliques and I am just loving it! So, after my apple and strawberry appliques, here is one for a little pear. I hope you’re not getting bored of my little fruit obsession because I have so many more in mind that I will hopefully crochet during these days of self-isolation at home.

Yes, Covid-19 is forcing everyone at home also here in the Netherlands, so I have some extra time to crochet some cute stuff. And who knows, maybe some of you might enjoy these little appliques as well!

Here, you can find some of the other crochet appliques that I have been enjoying making these days!

You can add this pattern to your Raverly queue

Materials

– 2.5-mm (12 UK) Crochet Hook
– A small amount of Cotton.
I used a mix of Lammy Yarns Rio and Schachenmayr Catania that I had in my stash, but any Sport (12 wpi) cotton will work fine.
For the colors, you will need your favorite pear color (I used yellow and light green), brown for the petiole and the seeds, and green for the leaf.
– Tapestry Needle

Yarn Substitutions

While I used 12wpi-cotton yarn and a 2.5 mm hook, you can choose any yarn and the appropriate hook size to crochet this pattern.

Just keep in mind that the final size of your Little Pear Crochet Applique will vary depending on your yarn and hook choice.

  1. Hey there! I saw your pattern on Pinterest and was wondering how you felt about the finished crochet products being sold? I was looking for some earring designs and motifs for bucket hats, and I think these would be perfect. Would that be okay? It’s totally fine if not (of course). Thanks!

    • Hi Anna,

      Thank you for your comment.

      It is absolutely fine to sell the finished products made from my patterns.

      If you would like to, you could include the pattern name citing raffamusadesigns.com as the source of the pattern in your listings on Etsy (if you sell on Etsy), or on the labels.
      But that’s just an extra and it is not required.

      Looking forward to seeing your creations 🙂
