20 Crochet Patterns for Motifs and Appliques (Full List)

As an avid fiber arts creator, you likely have a stash of yarn that consists of extra bits that aren’t enough for a whole project but are too good to throw out. It’s the continual dilemma: what can I do with my leftovers? Well, we have a solution.

Crochet motifs and appliques can be made to use up scraps of yarn. An individual motif works well as an addition to gift wrap or as an appliqué on another crochet item such as a hat or dress.

Sets of crochet motifs can be joined together to make larger items like blankets or strung together to make bunting that decorates your home.

Appliques are intended to be sewn onto other items, whether crochet or not (think crochet patches on denim jeans) but can also be joined together to make bunting.

We found some fun and easy small crochet patterns, so enjoy exploring their full potential when combined with your own creative ideas!
