Crochet Watermelon Applique

I've been revisiting some of my older patterns and sprucing things up! This is my super cute MINI WATERMELON crochet applique! There are so many possibilities for this cute applique... add it to your purse, make a keychain, make earrings, make hair clips.... the possibilities are endless!!

Size 7 crochet hook (This is the first set I ever owned!)
Crochet Thread size 10 (This is a great brand for cotton thread!)
Sewing needle (Blunt ended needles are a MUST HAVE!)
Size 4 Crochet Hook (I highly recommend this set!)
Embroidery Floss (This is a great deal on bulk floss!)

Works out to be about 1 inch across with size 10 thread and size 7 hook, or 1.25 inches across if you use Embroidery Floss and a Size 4 hook.

You can either attach the new color using the loop on hook, and ch 1 and turn. Or you can start with a slip knot on the hook and attach the yarn with the stitches indicated. Personally, I used the first method of attaching and chaining 1.

Row 1: Ch 4, 11 tr in 4th ch from hook
Row 2: Attach white thread, sc in next 2 ch, 2 sc in next, repeat across
Row 3: Attach green thread, 2 sc in each stitch across
Fasten off!

So easy to make!
