Crochet Patterns for Kids

Free Mouth Applique Crochet Pattern
Copyright © Hookfully

Thanks for checking out my free mouth appliqué crochet pattern. With the Valentine’s Day approaching i was inspired to make a pair of lips to sew onto my patchwork blanket. As with all appliqués you can sew them onto almost anything to create a Valentine’s theme.

Lips appliqué crochet pattern

The lips appliqué measures 8cm wide by 4cm high when using DK yarn and a 4mm crochet hook. You can sew them onto almost anything, the possibilities are endless. Be sure to tag me when you share on social media. I’d love to see what you used yours for!

How to crochet a mouth applique

The lips appliqué crochet pattern is beginner skill level. You’ll need to know all your basic crochet stitches. To make the lips appliqué I used red DK (weight 3) yarn and a 4mm crochet hook. The pattern is very quick and easy and is great way to use up yarn scraps.

ch – Chain

st/sts – Stitch/stitches

sl st – Slip stitch

sc – Single crochet

hdc – Half double crochet

dc – Double crochet

tr – Treble crochet

2tr/4tr – Increase (2/4 treble crochet in one space)

Gauge / tension

Gauge is important as everyone crochets with a different tension. Therefore, if your 2” swatch doesn’t match up you can change your hook size to suit your tension.

4mm hook – 2” x 2” = 7 rows of 9 hdc

Finished size – 8cm x 4cm

Pattern notes

I do not count chains in my stitch count.

Numbers in brackets are the number of rows/stitches.

Stitches separated with a comma are to be made in separate spaces. eg. (sc, dc) would mean sc in first stitch then dc in next stitch. eg. (sc x2, dc) would mean sc in first stitch, single crochet in second stitch, then dc in next stitch.

When fastening off leave a long tail for sewing if you are attaching the appliqué to something. If you are not sewing the appliqué to anything weave in ends.


You will need the following supplies to complete the crochet project (links will take you directly to my recommended supplies) 

– Crochet hooks 

– Tapestry needle

– DK Yarn

– Stitch markers (optional)

– scissors

– Tape measure
