Airplane applique pattern

Posted on: June 18, 2014

For the last month I have been working on a blanket for a friend’s baby shower, a pattern I found on Ravelry called Tiramisu Blanket. I wanted to add an applique, and it wasn’t difficult to figure out what to do since the nursery’s theme revolves around aviation and airplanes. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any plane applique pattern, so I decided to make my own. I am sharing this pattern, hoping that you will like it!

Airplane applique pattern

All the parts are made separately, the body, wings, tails and helix. I used a G/4mm hook because I needed my airplane to be large, approx.  9 inch wide and 6 inch long. If you decide to work with 4mm, gauge will equal 2 inches for 9 stitches of single crochet. If you want your airplane smaller, just use a smaller hook.

I used Red Heart Super Saver Solids, you can pick any colors you want, whatever works best for your project. Now, to the pattern!

Abbreviations:
rnd = round
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
hdc = half double crochet
dc = double crochet
tr = treble
inc = increase
dec = decrease
st = stitch
sl st = slip stitch

Body:
With grey yarn, ch 20
Rnd 1: 18 sc, 3 sc in last st, continue on the other side of the chain, 18 sc, 2 sc in last st. (40 )
Rnd 2: 2 sc in next st, 9 sc, 8 hdc, 2 hdc in next 3 st, 8 hdc, 11 sc ( 44)
Rnd 3: 2 sc in next st, 8 sc, 4 hdc, 7 dc, 2 dc in next 5 st, 7 dc, 4 hdc, 8 sc (50)
– Fasten off, and weave in the loose ends.

I love this pattern! I have an Etsy shop, and I would be really interested in using some of your applique patterns on the products I sell. I would never sell any of your patterns, and I would always include a link to the relevant blog post in the item listings for the products I use your patterns for. Please let me know if this is something you are okay with — either reply or send me an email at sweetlystitchedbykw@gmail.com. Thanks!

Hi! You can use my applique patterns for your products, I have no problem with it as long as you don’t take credit for the patterns 🙂

Hi! Like sweetlystitchedbykw I also have an etsy shop. My great grandmother made up a crochet sweater pattern that was at some point named the “airplane sweater” because the shape of the actual sweater looked like an airplane. I recently made that sweater for my cousins baby and wanted to put an airplane on it so I used your pattern and it looked awesome! I want to sell the “airplane sweater” pattern in my etsy shop using some of the photos from the sweater I made recently. Would it be ok to use the photos with your airplane and link back to your pattern? I would only be selling the pattern for my plain sweater.
Thanks,

Hi
How did you attach the plane to the blanket?
Thanks

Hello! I sewed it to the blanket by embroidering the edges to the stitches of the blanket. In order to not see through, I made sure that I inserted my needle inside the threads of the blankets and not completely on the other side. Another option is to use fabric glue, but personally I prefer the first option.
