Airplane applique pattern
Posted June 18, 2014on:
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!
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!
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
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.
Wings (make 2):
With blue yarn, ch 10
Rnd 1: 8 sc,3 sc in last st, continue on the other side of the chain, 7 sc, 2 sc in last st (20)
Rnd 2: 2 sc in next st, 7 sc, 2 sc in next 3 st, 9 sc (24)
Rnd 3: 2 sc, 2 sc in next st, 7 sc, 2 sc in next 5 st, 8 sc, 2 sc in last st (31)
Rnd 4: 2 sc, 2 sc in next st (32)
– Do not cut the yarn yet
– sl st the wings to the back loops of the body, starting at the 7 st from top.Fasten off and weave in loose ends.
Tails (make 2):
– With blue yarn
– The tail will be crocheted in the back loops of the body. Insert your yarn in the 6th st from the back of the plane to make a loop. ch 3, tr in same st, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc, fasten off. Do the same of the other side. Weave in loose ends.
Helix (make 2):With red yarn, 7 in ch
Row 1: 1 tr in 3rd st from hook, 1 dc, 1 hdc, 1 sc, 1 sl st.
– Fasten off, and leave a long tail to attach the helix in front of the plane. Make a knot in the back and weave in loose ends.
Voila! I hope you found this tutorial useful, and if you have any questions or problems with the pattern, don’t hesitate to ask me.
