This crochet umbrella applique is one of several spring themed appliques I have made as part of my Spring Blanket.
View the free written pattern as well as the video tutorial below. The granny square pattern is also included.
Attaching appliques to crochet projects can be tedious, but this is my favorite way to attach them for a clean backing. It’s basically using a whip stitch and sewing the applique onto just the top loops of your crochet piece.
Because it is attached to just the top loops, you will not see any seaming on the back side of the crochet piece. It’s pretty cool!
