Y is for Yak: Crochet Yak Applique

Y is for Yak
Wow I can’t believe there is only one more day left of my animal appliqués! That went by too fast. I’m not sure where else you would use a Yak appliqué unless you are crocheting the alphabet but maybe a couple of you will find another use for it :)

– Worsted weight yarn. I used Lion Brand Vanna’s Choice in chocolate brown, white, black and a little bit of beige.
– Size G Crochet Hook (the bigger the hook the bigger the appliqué and vice versa)
– Tapestry needle
Sl St = Slip Stitch
SC =  Single Crochet
SC Decrease  = Single Crochet Decrease
HDC = Half Double Crochet
DC = Double Crochet

    I'm really loving the crochet along! I'm a bit sad it's ending, but I'm going to use them as appliqués for an ABC quilt… I'll be honest the quilt idea came second to just enjoying making the animals 😉 thank you for the patterns :)

    I was looking for a buffalo applique pattern, I actually never thought I’d find one but this just fits the bill! Thanks for sharing all your hard work!
