Crochet appliqué's—they add fun and fantasy to children's
garments and accessories. You can create lions, tigers, dinosaurs, or dragons. In
Baby Blueprint Crochet, Robyn Chachula adds an adorable dinosaur
to her Callum pullover and the little frog on her Froggie Blanket delightful.
Stacey Gerbman's new children's sweater, in the Summer 2011
issue of Interweave Knits, features a
crocheted lion appliquéd on the front. The lion's mane is constructed using crochet loop stitch edging.
Joni Coniglio, Interweave Knit's project editor, walks through the process of constructing the
mane in her blog.
