Let me present to you, my sweetest little sea creature, Mr. Steve the tiny crochet whale applique free pattern.

He was born from leftover yarn from my easy crochet poncho and crop cardigan that I made and also the scrappy yarn that I had laid around in my basket and don’t know what to crochet with.

Mr. Steve the mini crochet whale uses little time to finish up maybe less than 10 minutes also perfect for beginners.

Well, I always want to design a whale pattern to add to my crochet ocean theme and I thought crochet applique is the way to go for me because it was speedy and quick to whip up and I could crochet up 10 whales easily in my afternoon break.

I might want to design another version of this tiny crochet whale in amigurumi plush toy.

Mr.Steve the baby whale can be used in many different creative ways, make a whale garland, add a finishing touch to your crochet basic bucket hat, or a raffia beach bag.

And much more your imagination is no limit.
