Size
The Crochet Whale Applique comes in two sizes, a big and a little one.
The big whale applique measures 2.5” (6 cm) by 1.5” (3.8 cm).
The little whale applique measures 2” (5 cm) by 1” (2.5 cm).

Materials
– 2.5-mm (12 UK) Hook
– A small amount of Sport (12 wpi) Cotton Yarn.
You will need two colors for the big whale and one color for the small one. You will also need a little bit of blue yarn or thread to make the water coming out of the blowhole.
– Black Embroidery Thread for the eye and mouth of the whale.
– Tapestry Needle
– Embroidery Needle

Construction
Both the big and little whales are crocheted in one piece, so no need to sew things together.

Yarn Substitutions
To crochet my Whale Appliques, I used some Rio cotton from Lammy Yarns and some Schachenmayr Catania that I had in my stash. However, you can crochet it with whatever yarn you have and with the right hook size.
Just keep in mind that the size of your applique will vary depending on your yarn and hook choice.
