W is for Whale: Crochet Whale Applique

W is for Whale
I have a feeling you will be able to use this whale on multiple projects! Whales seem to be popular and trendy among kids decor. In fact, my kids have a whale-themed bathroom! I look forward to seeing all the places you use this appliqué.

– Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in Aqua (it’s one of their baby yarns) and a little black for the eye and mouth.
– Size G Crochet Hook (the bigger the hook the bigger the appliqué and vice versa)
– Tapestry needle

    Again a gorgeous little animal. I think I'll give the whale a water fountain on top of him. Thanks for this pattern.

    I wish you a great weekend, Margaret

    Hi! Love your stuff. I’m a consummate beginner with the slightest capability for intermediate crochet. I have a question for you…

    After Row 3, before the chain 1 and turn, is there a join? I read and reread just in case I missed something. My first whale has a Pac-Man look on the bottom. I’m going to try it with a join and see… But if I’m missing something, let me know!
