The very essence of nautical but nice – this large crochet anchor pattern is as stylish as it gets! We came across this amazing idea over at Natsulog and were hooked in an instant … no pun intended. In fashion stakes, the addition of an anchor to pretty much anything has the potential to transform a total snooze-fest into something truly outstanding. When and where anchors suddenly became so cool we might never know – we’re just pretty darn glad they did!
We love this idea because rather than just printing an anchor on something or sewing its outline, you’re actually making a real 3D anchor that can be used to spruce up just about anything. It makes the crochet bag look absolutely outstanding, but would do the same justice for any hat, scarf or garment imaginable.
Lucky for us, the pattern and guide you’ll find at the link below are all free to use!
Cute Nautical Crochet Customization
We’ve tried this pattern out a bunch of times now and can confirm what these guys are saying – it really is a doddle to make. The guide will take you through every step of the process, though you’ll have total creative freedom when it comes to the yarn you choose to use and how you’d like the finished anchor to look. Classic and calm or bright and bold, it’s hard to go wrong with something this universally awesome.
Take a look at the rest of our crochet craft collections and you’ll find a thousand and one ways to put this amazing anchor to good use. Add it to a baby blanket, scale it down to be applied to a pair of crochet slipper boots or perhaps use it to create a unique table runner – just as long as it’s unique, it’s perfect!
