Free Palm Tree Applique Pattern

Hello there and welcome back! With the Summer months upon us, I’ve really been inspired to make things that can be useful in summer. I know I’m not the only one who finds it hard to want to crochet a blanket when it’s nearing 80+ degrees outside 🙂 Which inspired me to create a simple palm tree applique pattern. Up on my Etsy shop, I made a pineapple reusable coffee sleeve and it was a HUGE hit. (Shop TCWL Boutique on Etsy by clicking the header above 🙂 ) I really wanted to add to the tropical theme and couldn’t find a small and simple palm tree applique anywhere. Therefore this simple applique was born! You don’t need much yarn, and it whips up in just a few minutes. So if you’re ready, let’s get into this adorable and simple applique!

Level: Beginner

Materials needed:
Yarn – Green and brown worst weighted or any size (4) yarn.
Size I 5.5mm crochet hook.
Yarn needle to weave in ends.

Abbreviations used:
Hdc-Half-Double Crochet
SC-Single Crochet
Sl St-Slip Stitch


Base of the palm tree-

Foundation: Starting out with the brown yarn, Ch. 10. Turn your work and Ch 1.
Row 1: Hdc 4, Sk 1 St, Hdc 1, Sk 1 St then Hdc in the last 2 Sts. Turn your work and Ch 1.

The base of your palm tree is already done. Here’s what it should look like:
Palm Tree Step One

Now onto the palm leaves:

Switch to your green yarn now. Ch 8 and SC in each stitch. Then Sl St to the base and where you started from. Do this three more times, to have a total of 4 palm leaves.

Palm Tree Step Two

*Optional: Making the coconuts for the palm tree.
Simply Ch 4, then Sl St together. Giving you a small circle. Leave long yarn tails so you can easily attach them to your palm tree.

Palm Tree Step Three

That’s it and you’re done! I told you it was simple and quick! 🙂 Now simply apply it to a crochet blanket, coffee cozy (like I have pictured below), hat, card or anything you can think of! I hope you enjoyed this tropical applique as much as I did.
