Dragonfly Appliqué

By JC Designs
These dragonflies are great for applying to any projects.
  I love dragonflies in home decor but I do dislike the real thing though. haha. :)

The dragonfly measures approx. 3” inches from a to head to abdomen but can vary based on yarn and hook size.

*Crochet hook size: 3.0mm
*Worsted weight yarn: small amounts of any colors you like
*Tapestry Needle

  Numbers in ( ) at the end of each round or row indicate the total number of stitches for that round or row.

  Row 1: ch 13, sc in 2nd ch from hook and across (12)
  Row 2: ch 3 and on the tip of the last sc do 2dc. Turn your work and sl st into the 3rd ch.
Do not F/O.

Turn your work again. ch 3 and sl st into the same st.
F/O and secure. Weave in end.
Where those black lines are theirs a gap from the dc.
Attach yarn where the gaps are.
ch 7, sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next 4chs, sc in last ch, sl st where we attach the yarn. (6)
Top wings.
In the same place where you attach the yarn for the top wings right underneath them attach yarn to make the bottom wings.
ch 5, sc in 2nd ch from hook, hdc in next 2chs, sc in last sc, sl st where we attach the yarn (4)
All you need to do now is add some antennas. With black yarn attach the yarn to the head and sl st and cut to desire length.

  1. So cute! Thank you :D I am going to try it right now :D

  2. Thank you so much, this is lovely x

  3. Hello, I'm attempting this dragonfly, it's my favorite from all of the ones I've seen online so far.. I am kind of muddled where the top wings are supposed to attach to complete, do you happen to have a video tutorial on this? It would be so helpful to me and to those who learn in a more visual way.. thank you so very much for making this available, I love a lot of your patterns :)

  4. Thank you so much! It is just what I needed :)

  5. Thank you for this pattern. It worked perfectly with my Radiating Dragonfly Afghan!

  6. Thanks for this pattern. I was able to make all 4 wings without breaking off by removing the hook and catching the loop from the back. Used one black strand to embroider eyes then tie at back and cut for the 2 antennas.

  7. Just wanted to add that dragonflies don't have antennas, but still real cute.

  8. Hello Burnetta.
