The crochet rain drops applique is one of several spring themed appliques for the Spring Blanket.
The written pattern is available to view below as well as the video tutorial. The granny square pattern is also included after the applique.
These raindrops are super easy and quick to make. They consist of only two rounds for each raindrop.
Appliques can be sewn onto the granny square or another crochet project a couple different ways. The best way to sew appliques on is to whip stitch them to the top loops on the crochet piece. When completed in this manner, the sewing will not show on the back of the crochet piece.
