free crochet anchor 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.
