I guess this will be a good test to see if my mom actually reads my blog, lol! So Mom, if you are reading, stop here so you don’t see your Mother’s Day surprise 🙂
First I will give you a little background … my mother loves the sea! She loves sailing and sand and shells and everything that goes along with the ocean. So when I saw a pendant in a shop that read “You Are My Anchor” I immediately thought of her … of course because of the ocean theme but also because that is what she is … my anchor. So I got to work designing this pretty crochet anchor pattern to embellish her Mother’s Day card and maybe even a few other crochet surprises.
Crochet Anchor Pattern
Here’s what you will need:

Step 10: Sl st in 1st st to join. Fasten off, weave in ends.
You can use your anchor as an applique to embellish just about anything, but as you can see I chose a card. To attached the anchor to the card I used some double sided tape; that way, if my mom wants to peel it off and use it as an ornament or for something else she can. I decorated the bottom of the card with some sparkly puff painted waves. And of course the saying that inspired it all … “You are my anchor” …
