Free Moon & Star Appliques Crochet Patterns
Copyright © Hookfully

These cute little moon and star appliques are fast and easy to crochet. They can be made in minutes and make adorable decorations for baby bedtime items. The crescent moon applique and little stars are small enough to sew onto baby clothing, toys and blankets. You can make as many as you like and arrange them to make perfect design.

How to crochet moon & star appliques

The moon and stars appliques are beginner skill level. They works up very quickly, in one piece and with no sewing. The appliques use only a tiny amount of yarn, making them a great stash buster. You will need to know all your basic crochet stitches to complete the pattern. To make the appliques I used DK/Light Worsted yarn and a 4mm crochet hook. But, you could try out different yarn weights with the recommended hook for different sized motifs.
