Crochet Kite Tutorial – Crochet Applique Tutorial

Crochet Kite Tutorial – Crochet Applique Tutorial


Hello everyone, thank you for joining me,
I’m Kerri. Today I’ll be showing you how to crochet this kite to go on my teddy
bears picnic blanket. When crocheted using 8 ply wool, which is this 1 here,
it’s 18 centimeters from here to the end of the tail or 7 inches and 6.5
centimeters from here to here or 2.5 inches.
When crocheted using 4 ply crochet cotton, this 1, the size is 12
centimeters by 4 centimeters or 4.75 inches by 1.5 inches. I’ll be using 8 ply yarn today, which is
light worsted in the US and double knit in the UK. I’ve got yellow and blue for
my kite color and I’ll be using the brown for the string. I’ve got a darning needle
to weave in the ends and stitch it together. I’ve got a 3 millimeter
crochet hook and scissors. Now I start on either 1 of the colors for the kite.
So I’ll start on my yellow and I work 7 chain. I miss the first chain and work 1
single crochet into each stitch to the end. A single crochet is called a double
crochet in the UK. For a single crochet I put the hook into the stitch, the second
from the hook and bring up a loop. Yarn around the hook and take my hook with
the yarn at the end through both the loops. And I work 1 single crochet into
each remaining chain. I’ll have 6 single crochet. For row 2 we start with 1 chain and
turn our work over. We’re going to work 1 single crochet into each stitch to
the last 2 stitches and we’ll work a joined single crochet over the last 2
stitches and we’ll have 5 stitches. So 1 single crochet to the last 2
stitches. And work a joined single crochet over the
last 2 stitches. For a joined single crochet put your hook into the first
stitch and bring through a loop. Hook into the next stitch and bring through a
loop. Yarn around the hook and take your hook with the yarn at the end through
all the loops. For row 3 we start with 1 chain and turn
and we work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the end. For row 4 we start with 1 chain and
turn and we work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches and
we’ll work a joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches and we’ll have
4 stitches. So 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches. And then work a joined single crochet over the
last 2 stitches. For row 5 we start with 1 chain and turn and work 1
single crochet into each stitch to the end and we’ll have 4 stitches. For row 6 we start with 1 chain
and turn. We work 1 single crochet into each of our first 2 stitches and then work a joined single crochet over the last
2 stitches. For row 7 we start with 1 chain and turn and work 1
single crochet into each of our 3 stitches. For row 8 we start with 1 chain
and turn. We work 1 single crochet into the first stitch and work a joined single
crochet over the last 2 stitches. For row 9 we start with 1 chain and turn and
work 1 single crochet into each of our 2 stitches. For row 10 we start
with 1 chain and turn and we work a joined single crochet over our 2
stitches. For row 11 we start with 1 chain and turn and work 1
single crochet into our stitch. For row 12 we turn our work and we work a
slip stitch into our stitch. So we put our hook into the stitch, bring through a
loop and take it straight through the loop on our hook. And then we work 1
chain and fasten off leaving a longish tail. And that’s the first part of the
kite. Now for the second part of the kite we join our second kite color to the last
stitch on this slope side, so this stitch here. We join in our yarn and we work 1
chain. We work 1 single crochet into that same stitch as our chain and then
work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the end, just that bottom part
of the cast on chain, that bit there. We’ll have 6 stitches all together. For row 2 we start with 1 chain and
turn our work. We work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2
stitches and we’ll work a joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches and
we’ll have 5 stitches. So work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the
last 2 stitches. And work a joined single crochet over the
last 2 stitches. For row 3 we start with 1 chain and turn and work
1 single crochet into each of our 5 stitches. For row 4 we start with 1 chain and
turn. We work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches and
work a joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches and we’ll have 4
stitches. So 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches and a
joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches. For row 5 we start with 1 chain and turn
and work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the end. For row 6 we start with 1 chain
and turn and work 1 single crochet into each of the first 2 stitches. And work a joined single crochet over the
last 2 stitches. For row 7 we start with 1 chain and turn and work
1 single crochet into each of our 3 stitches. For row 8 we start with 1 chain and turn.
Work 1 single crochet into the first stitch and work a joined single crochet
over the last 2 stitches. For row 9 we start with 1 chain and turn and
work 1 single crochet into each of our 2 stitches. For row 10 we start with 1 chain and turn
and we work a joined single crochet over both our stitches. For row 11 we
start with 1 chain and turn and work a single crochet into our stitch. For row
12 we turn and slip stitch into our stitch and then work a chain and we
fasten off leaving a longer tail. And that’s the first side of our kite done.
Now for the second side of the kite I’m going to start with the color that I
finished with last time. So I worked my yellow first and then my blue, so this
time I’m working my blue first. I start with 7 chain. For row 1 I miss the first chain and work
1 single crochet into each stitch to the end and I’ll have 6 stitches. For row 2 we start with 1 chain and turn
our work. We work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches and
we work a joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches and we’ll have 5
stitches. So 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches. And work a joined single crochet over the
last 2 stitches. For row 3 we start with 1 chain and
turn and work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the end. For row 4 we start with 1 chain
and turn. We work 1 single crochet into each of the first 3 stitches and a
joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches and we’ve got 4 stitches. For row 5 we start with 1 chain and
turn and work 1 single crochet into each of our 4 stitches. For row 6 we start with 1 chain and
turn. We work 1 single crochet into each of the first 2 stitches and a
joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches. So we’ve got 3 stitches. For row 7 we start with 1 chain and turn
and work 1 single crochet into each of our 3 stitches. For row 8 we start with 1 chain
and turn. We work 1 single crochet into the first stitch and work a joined
single crochet over the last 2 stitches. For row 9 we start with 1 chain and turn and
work 1 single crochet into each of the 2 stitches. So we’ve got 2 stitches
there. For row 10 we start with 1 chain and turn and work a joined single crochet
over the 2 stitches. For 11 we start with 1 chain and turn and work a
single crochet into our stitch. For row 12 we turn our work and work a slip
stitch into the stitch and work 1 chain and fasten off. We don’t need to
leave a long tail this time. And that’s the first part of the second side done.
For the second part of this side we join our yarn in the first stitch on this
slope side, so this stitch in here and work 1 chain. We work 1 single crochet in the same
stitch as the chain and then 1 single crochet into each of the remaining 5
stitches. For row 2 we start with 1 chain and turn
and we work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches and work
a joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches and we’ll have 5 stitches. So
1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches. And a joined single
crochet over the last 2 stitches. For row 3 we start with 1 chain and
turn and work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the end. For row 4 we start with 1 chain and
turn and work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches and
work a joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches. So 1 single crochet into
each stitch to the last 2 stitches and work a joined single crochet over the
last 2 stitches. For row 5 we start with 1 chain and turn
and work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the end, we’ll have 4
stitches. For row 6 we work 1 chain and turn
and work 1 single crochet into each of the first 2 stitches and work a joined
single crochet over the last 2 stitches. For row 7 we start with
1 chain and turn and work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the end. For row 8 we start with 1 chain
and turn. We work 1 single crochet into the first stitch and work a joined
single crochet over the last 2 stitches. For row 9 we start with 1 chain and turn and
work 1 single crochet into each of our 2 stitches. For row 10 we start
with 1 chain and turn and work a joined single crochet over both our
stitches. For row 11 we start with 1 chain and turn and work 1
single crochet into our stitch. For row 12 we turn our work and work a slip
stitch into our stitch and work 1 chain and fasten off. We
don’t need to leave a long tail. And that’s the second part finished. Now for
these bows, you could make 3 or 4. I’ll make 3 today. You could use
ribbon, little ribbon bows if you prefer. Now you start with 5 chain. You work 1 half double crochet in the
third chain from the hook. A half double crochet is called a half treble in the
UK. For a half double crochet you put the yarn around the hook. Hook into the
stitch, which will be the third from the hook and bring through a loop. Yarn
around the hook and take the hook with the yarn through all the loops. Then we
work 1 slip stitch into the next stitch and then a half double crochet
into the last stitch. And then work 2 chain and slip stitch into the same
stitch as the last half double crochet and fasten off leaving a long tail. I’ll
use that to wrap around the bow once or twice and then to stitch it on to the tail of the kite. So I’ll work a couple more and I’ll weave in the ends
and firstly we’ll have to stitch the kite together and then we’ll crochet
on a tail. Now there’s my 2 kite pieces. I don’t weave in the ends until I start
stitching it together so I know which is going to be the back to weave the ends
in to. So firstly I place 1 side on top of the other side making sure I’ve got
the reverse colors against each other, so like that and then I just stitch through like that down to the middle
and then I stitch up from the other side and these will be my wrong side. So I’ve
got the 2 right sides together. So I’ll stitch these together and I’ll weave in
the ends and I’ll be back and we’ll do the tail. For the tail I join the color
I’m using for my string to 1 end of the kite.
So I’ll just join in there and I’ve been working 25 chain, and fasten off. Now for this string, it would depend on
what it’s going to be holding on and how high you want your kite to be flying.
I’ll probably crochet 50 chain for the string. And I’ll leave a little bit of a tail to
attach it to the kite. Now I’ll just weave in the rest of the ends and I’ll be back
and we’ll put it together. Now there’s my pieces. I’ve got the kite with the tail,
3 bows and I’ve got the string. So to make it up I just need to attach the
bows evenly along the tail. I’ll put a yellow, a blue and then a yellow. And I
attach the string to the center back, just in there and when I stitch it on to
something I’ll have to stretch it out. So I’ll attach those and I’ll be back to
show you the finished kite. And there’s the finished kite.
