How to Make Patches with Crochet

There are lots of tutorials for how to make patches, but I’m loving this crochet method that turns a simple repair into a cute new detail.

One of my favorite things about mending is when I can show off my repair. That can mean using contrasting thread when I stitch up a separated pocket or using reverse applique to cover a tear. So, of course, Craft Stylish contributor CalPatch is a woman after my own heart with this sweet tutorial for how to make patches using crochet. It makes me wish that I knew how to crochet!

CalPatch used this method to create a patch for the worn elbow of a sweater, but it would work on any knit that’s worn a hole.
