Little Pear Crochet Applique

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

This little pear is perfect to embellish anything kitchen-related. Be it your potholders, dishcloths, or jam jars.

Another cute idea is to make a couple of pears with very thin yarn and use them as earrings or little pendants.

The pattern works up in no time and since it uses very little yarn, it’s also a great stash-buster!

  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 🙂
