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

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 🙂

[…] Plane Applique by Miss Dolkapots, on Miss Dolkapots Krafties: Add an airplane to anything with this perfect applique! […]

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 Melanie. Yes, go ahead. Thank you for asking!

Love the pattern Thank you

I am glad you like it! 🙂

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.

Thank you so much for posting this adorable pattern. Much appreciated.

You are very welcome! 🙂

I hope some day I can make this pattern. I’m not brand new to crochet, having made 12 afghans, some pillow covers and some amigurumi. However, I’ve never worked the back of a chain and this is confusing and I don’t know what or how you’re doing it! Back and forth or in a circle? I’ve done both and my plane body comes out completely different. Three hours and a half later and I have to call it quits. I wish I knew how I could learn how to do this stuff because I know I’m capable I just don’t know what’s being done…

This is the second dollI I made to challenge myself and attempt to improve my skills. I think this one is an improvement of the first one. I am very happy with it 😊 #amigurumi #dollsofinstagram #doll #crochet #artsandcrafts #missdolkapots #crochetdoll #ilovecrochet #teddybear #crochetbear #crochetersofinstagram
Still experimenting with dolls. This version is very small and crocheted with mercerized yarn. I really like the result, now I need to doll her up! #crocher #dolls #dollsofinstagram #amigurumi #diy #crafts #crochetfun #ilovecrochet
This is a doll I worked on to learn new techniques and improve my skills. I am very happy with the result but I will make another one to continue my practice. #artsandcrafts #amigurumi #dollsofinstagram #dolls #crochetersofinstagram #crochetfun #ilovecrochet #crocheting
Trying to improve my skills with this doll. I am really happy so far! I still need to work on her facial features and hair. It is a lot of work but it is so rewarding. I hope to achieve my goals and upgrade my techniques by the end of the year. #crochet #amigurumi #doll #learning #teachyourself #artsandcrafts #hobbies #crochetersofinstagram
Angel or Demon? They are twins but one is for Christmas and the other one for Halloween. Kokeshi inspired amigurumi dolls. #amigurumi #crochet #angel #littledevil #dollsofinstagram #halloween #christmas #kokeshi #小芥子
Time to improve my skills for the last quarter of 2018. My goal is to make a shaped form doll with bendable wires. I also intend to make clothes separately, another challenge. It is time to grow... #amigurumi #doll #crochet #diy #craft #skills #improvement
