I love the anchor motif!!! I think we all need this motif more of less as our summer decoration!!!
I spent quite some time to create the anchor crochet pattern. Today, I can finally share the pattern with you and I’m quite happy with that 🙂
You can use whatever yarns and hooks you want to use. Well, let’s get started 😀
This time, the instruction will look slightly complicated (but not so difficult to follow), so I made a diagram to explain the pattern. I also wrote how to proceed the pattern in the picture just next to the diagram. For those who don’t like reading symbols, I will also explain in words. My tutorial “step” numbers are synchronized with the numbers written in the picture below.
◆Anchor pattern in a crochet diagram◆
- ch(s): chain(s)
- ss: slip stitch
- st(s): stitch(es)
- sc: single crochet
- hdc: half double crochet
Step 1. Make a double magic ring. Ch 1. (1 sc in the magic ring, 1 ch) three times. Close the loop of the magic ring. Ss to the 1st sc.
Step 2. Ch 8. 1 hdc in the 3rd st from the hook. 1 hdc in each of the next 5 sts.
Step 3. Ss to the point “A” (shown in the picture below). Ss in the next 2 sts to get to the point “B”.
Step 4. Ch 8. 1 hdc in the 3rd stitch from the hook. 1 hdc in each of the next 5 sts. Ss to the point “C”.
Step 5. Ch 9. 1 hdc in the 3rd st from the hook. 1 hdc in the next st.
Step 6. Ch 9. Ss to the 7th st from the hook.
Step 7. Ch 2. [1 hdc, 2 hdc in the next st] around. (10 hdc)
Step 8. 1 hdc in the next 2 sts.
Step 9. Ch 4. 1 hdc in the 3rd st from the hook. 1 hdc in the next st.
Step 10. 1 hdc next 2 sts together.
Step 11. 1 hdc in the next 5 sts.
Step 12. Ss to the bottom.
Cut the yarn and trim the end 🙂 DONE!!!
If you like, you can make some chs with another yarn, and wrap the anchor nicely!!! I made 30 chs 🙂
Enjoy decorating things around you!! 😀
I decorated a summer hat with this anchor. Please have a look on my hat here.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my tutorial 🙂 Happy crocheting ♡
*** Notes ***
I have invested a lot of time in creating the pattern, taking photos, writing the instructions as clear as possible, therefore it will be really kind of you to respect my rights.
If you have a blog, I’ll be definitely happy when you write about this pattern (and your achievements).
At that time, I can never be happier if it would have a link to my blog! Thank you ♡
