Crochet Applique – Cow

Find here a free pattern to make this adorable cow appliqué.


Here is the second pattern for my Farm Crochet appliqués collection! You can use them to personalize a crochet blanket, a crochet bag or even some clothes!  The first one I did is a pig! My dad loved pigs and we used to give anything with pigs on it. So making this little crochet pig made me think of him.
