Anchor Crochet Pattern

Free Anchor Crochet Pattern
I’ve been looking for a free anchor crochet pattern for a while now. I’ve searched on Etsy for anchor appliqué patterns, and I just haven’t been able to find the exact, easy crochet pattern I was looking for. Since I finally finished my nautical baby blanket, I decided it was time to come up with a free crochet anchor pattern for the Daisy Cottage Designs blog. 
If you want to make your own crocheted anchor, you’ll only need a few things and a small amount of time. 
  • H crochet hook
  • Small amount of worsted weight yarn
  • Tapestry needle for weaving ends and sewing onto project
This pattern is made in three pieces.

Anchor Top:
Step 1: ch 5. Sl st in the first chain to make a ring. 
Step 2: ch 2. Work 11 dc into the ring. Don’t sl st to the top of the first stitch. 
Step 3: ch 12. hdc into the second ch and in each remaining ch until you get back to the ring. Sl st in the first dc you made. Cut yarn leaving a long tail for sewing on. 
Anchor Cross Bar: 
Step 1: ch 9
Step 2: hdc in the second ch and in each remaining ch. Cut yarn and leave a long tail for sewing on. 
Anchor Bottom: 
Step 1: ch 15. 
Step 2: hdc in the second ch and in the next 4 stitches. hdc2tog, hdc2tog. hdc in the next 4 stitches, 2 hdc in the last st. Cut yarn and weave ends. Leave a long tail for sewing on. 
Now you’re ready to put your anchor on a hat. Sew the anchor top onto your baby blanket or hat using even stitches. I go up through one stitch, down through the next to help keep the appliqué nice and flat. Then, sew on the cross bar. Last, you will attach the bottom.

  1. Do you think this would work with string. I love the pattern and I thinknit would make THE cutest necklace charm. If I do the project I will make sure to let you know so you can swing to my blog and check out pics :)

  2. Hi, I have just crocheted my 9 month old boat shoes and think a little anchor would go perfectly on it. This pattern is great but i need a small 3cm anchor is there any advice you can give me?

  3. Thank you for this simple anchor pattern. I use it every time I have an order for nautical hats. :)

    Thanks for the pattern. I’m looking for an anchor for a hat and this one seems a bit big. I’ll try it out to be sure.
    FYI It would be helpful to have a finished size measurement.
