Materials & Tools For Crochet Appliques

To crochet appliques, you can use any size/mm crochet hook and yarn.

You can use any yarn fiber, like cotton yarn, wool yarn or acrylic yarn.

If you are attaching them to a crochet project, it’s great if you can use the same crochet hook and yarn as for the main project.

It’s common to use either 3 light yarn (dk weight yarn) or 4 medium weight yarn (aran or worsted weight yarn).

Next, you’ll need a crochet hook that matches the yarn weight.
