Crochet Quail Tutorial – Crochet Applique Tutorial


Hello everyone, thank you for joining me,
I’m Kerri. Today I’ll be showing you how to crochet a quail. The size when
crocheted in 8 ply wool, this 1, is 15.5 centimeters by 13 centimeters or 6
inches by 5 inches. And this quail here crocheted in 4 ply crochet cotton is 9
centimeters by 11.5 centimeters or 3.5 inches by 4.5 inches. Now I’ll be using 4 ply crochet cotton
today. I’ve got white, light brown, dark brown, black and gray.
I’ve got sewing thread and a needle to stitch it together and to embroider the
black dot on the eye. I’ve got a 1.5 millimeter crochet hook. A darning needle
to weave in the ends and my scissors. Now I’m going to start on the head. So I
work the head and then down the back and the tail. So using my gray I make a
magic loop. So I put the hook on my cotton, bring the short end over the hook,
take the long end over the short end. Put the yarn around the hook and take the
hook with the yarn through the circle. And that’s my magic loop. For row 1 I
work 1 chain and then I work 12 half double crochet into my circle. A half
double crochet is called a half treble using UK terms. For a half double
crochet put the yarn around the hook. Hook into the circle through the front
and bring back a loop. Yarn around the hook and take the hook with this yarn at
the end through all the loops. And I need 11 more half double crochet. Then I pull the circle tight, so I take
hold of the tail and ease the circle in and then I join the circle with a slip
stitch in the top of the first stitch. For a slip stitch I put my hook into the
stitch, bring through a loop and take it straight through the loop on my hook.
And that’s row 1 done. For row 2 we work 1 chain and then we turn our work and
we work 2 single crochet into the first stitch. A single crochet is called
a double crochet using UK terms. For a single crochet put the hook into the
stitch and bring through a loop. Yarn around the hook and take the hook with the yarn
at the end through both loops. And we need 1 more single crochet into that
same stitch. Then we work 1 single crochet into each of the next 4
stitches. Next we work 1 half double crochet
into the same stitch as our last single crochet. Then we work 2 double crochet
into the next stitch. A double crochet is called a treble in the UK. For a double
crochet put the yarn around the hook. Hook into the stitch and bring back a
loop. Yarn around the hook and take the hook with the yarn at the end through
2 loops. Yarn around the hook, hook with the yarn at the end of the remaining 2
loops. And we need 1 more double crochet in that same stitch. And we’ve
got 9 stitches. For row 3 we start with 3 chain and turn our work. We
work 2 double crochet in the first stitch. 1 half double crochet into the next
stitch. 1 single crochet into each stitch till we have 2 stitches left.
And we’re going to work a joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches. So we
work 1 single crochet in each stitch till we have 2 left. Now we’re going to work a joined single
crochet over our last 2 stitches. For a joined single crochet put your hook into
the next stitch and bring through a loop. Hook into the last stitch and bring through a loop. Yarn around the hook and take the hook with the yarn at the end
through all the loops. For row 4 we start with 3 chain and we’re
going to work a joined double crochet over the first 2 stitches, we turn our
work first. So for a joined double crochet yarn around the hook, hook into the first
stitch and bring through a loop. Yarn around the hook and take the hook with
the yarn at the end through 2 loops. Then yarn around the hook, hook into the next
stitch, bring through a loop. Yarn around the hook and take your hook through 2
loops. Yarn around the hook and take your hook through the remaining 3 loops.
And then we work 1 half double crochet into each of the following 2 stitches. And then work 1 single crochet into
each stitch to the last stitch. And work 2 single crochet into the
last stitch. For row 5 we start with 1 chain and turn and we’re going to work 1
single crochet into each stitch to the end and we’ll have 9 stitches. So 1
single crochet into each of our 9 stitches. For row 6 we start with 1 chain and turn
our work and work 1 single crochet into each of our 9 stitches. For row 7 we start with 1 chain and
turn and we work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last stitch and we’ll
work 2 single crochet in the last stitch and we’ll have 10 stitches. So 1
single crochet into each stitch to the last stitch. And work 2 single crochet into the
last stitch. For row 8 we start with 1 chain and turn. We work 2 single
crochet into the first stitch and then work 1 single crochet into each of
the next 5 stitches and we’ll have 7 stitches. So 1 single crochet
into each of the next 5 stitches. For row 9 we start with 1 chain and
turn. We work a joined single crochet over the first 2 stitches and then
work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the end and we’ll have 6
stitches. For row 10 we start with 1 chain and turn.
We work 2 single crochet into the first stitch and then work 1 single crochet
into each stitch to the end and we’ll have 7 stitches. For row 11 we start with 1 chain
and turn and we work 1 single crochet into each of our 7 stitches. For row 12 we start with 1 chain and
turn and work 1 single crochet into each of our 7 stitches. For row 13 we work 1 chain and turn. We
work a joined single crochet over our first 2 stitches and then work 1
single crochet into each stitch to the end and we’ll have 6 stitches. For row 14 we start with 1 chain and turn. We
work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches and we’ll work
a joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches and we’ll have 5
stitches. So 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches and a
joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches. For row 15 we start with 1
chain and turn. We work a joined single crochet over the first 2 stitches and then work 1 single crochet into each
stitch to the end and we’ll have 4 stitches. For row 16 we start with 1
chain and turn. We work 1 single crochet into each of the first 2
stitches and then work a joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches. For
row 17 we start with 1 chain and turn. Work a joined single crochet over the
first 2 stitches and 1 single crochet in the last stitch. For row 18 we start with 1 chain and turn and work 1 single crochet into each of
our 2 stitches. For row 19 we start with 1 chain and turn and work
a joined single crochet over our 2 stitches. Now rows 20 to 28 are worked the same. We start with 1 chain and turn and work 1 single crochet into our stitch. So
that was row 20, we need to do the same for rows 21 to 28.
So 1 chain and turn and 1 single crochet into each stitch to the end, into
our stitch sorry. And repeat that until we have 28 rows. That was row 21. I’ve worked my 28 rows. Now I work 12
chain. Next I work 1 slip stitch into each
stitch down the chain, except for the first chain. So miss the first chain and
work 1 slip stitch into each stitch. For a slip stitch put your hook into the
stitch, bring through a loop and take it straight through the loop on your hook.
And repeat that down the chain. Now we’re going to work a slip stitch
into each stitch up the back. So the back is this side here. So just find a
suitable place to put your hook and then work a slip stitch into each stitch up
the back to the head. Now once I get to the head I’m going to
work a single crochet into the stitches around, normally 1 single crochet into
each stitch, but occasionally I may need to work 2 single crochet into a stitch.
If it starts to slope back work 2 single crochet into the stitch. And then continue around to the tip of
the tail working 1 slip stitch into each stitch. So I’ll continue round to the tail and
then I’ll be back. Once we get back near the end of the tail we slip stitch
into the tip of the tail and fasten off. Now I’ll just weave in those ends to
make it easier to see and we’ll be back to do the stomach. Now for this tummy
section I join my light brown cotton 4 stitches down from this corner piece,
so just in here and I work 1 chain and slip stitch into the next stitch up
towards the corner. Then I slip stitch into the corner stitch and turn my work
and I work 1 single crochet into the top of the chain, so just in there. And
then I work 1 chain and turn my work. For row 3 I work 2 single crochet
into that first stitch. And then I work 1 single crochet into
each stitch across and I should have 7 stitches. I’ve got 7 stitches, now I slip
stitch into the next stitch along the side here and then slip stitch into the
following stitch and turn your work. Now we’re going to
work 1 single crochet into each stitch to the last stitch and we’ll work 2
single crochet into the last stitch and we’ll have 8 stitches. I’ve worked 1 single crochet into each
stitch to the last stitch, now 2 single crochet into the last stitch. For row 5
I start with 1 chain and turn. I work 1 single crochet into each stitch to
the end of the row and I’ll have 8 stitches. And then slip stitch into each of the
next 2 stitches up the side and turn. For row 6 we work 2 single crochet into the
first stitch. 1 single crochet into each of the next 5 stitches and then 1 half double crochet into
each remaining stitch. For row 7 we start with 2 chain and turn.
Work 1 half double crochet into each of the next 6 stitches. And then 1 single crochet into each
stitch to the last stitch and then 2 single crochet into the last stitch. We will
have 10 stitches. And then slip stitch into each of the
next 2 stitches up the side. For row 8 we turn our work and work
1 single crochet into each of the first 4 stitches. 1 half double crochet into each of
the next 3 stitches. 1 double crochet into the next stitch
and a joined double crochet over the last 2 stitches. For row 9 we start with
3 chain and turn. We work 1 double crochet into each of the first 3
stitches. 1 half double crochet into each of the
next 3 stitches. 1 single crochet into each stitch to
the last stitch and work 2 single crochet into the
last stitch. And then slip stitch into each of the next 2 stitches up the
side. For row 10 we turn our work. We work 1 single crochet into each of the
first 4 stitches. 1 half double crochet into each of
the next 3 stitches. 1 double crochet into the next stitch and a joined double crochet over the last 2 stitches. For row 11 we start with
3 chain and turn our work. Work a joined double crochet over the first 2
stitches. 1 half double crochet into each of the next 3 stitches. And 1 single crochet into each stitch
to the end and we’ll have 8 stitches. And then slip stitch into the next 2
stitches up the side. For row 12 we turn our work and work 1
single crochet into each of the first 2 stitches. 1 half double crochet
into each of the next 3 stitches. 1 double crochet into the next stitch
and a joined double crochet over the last 2 stitches. For row 13 we start with 3 chain
and turn. We work a joined double crochet over the first 2 stitches. 1
half double crochet into each of the next 2 stitches and then work 1
single crochet into each stitch to the end and we’ll have 6 stitches. And then slip stitch into each of the
next 2 stitches up the side. For row 14 we turn our work and work
1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches and we’ll work a
joined single crochet over the last 2 stitches and we’ll have 5 stitches. So
1 single crochet into each stitch to the last 2 stitches and work a joined
single crochet over the last 2 stitches. For row 15 we start with 1
chain and turn our work. We work a joined single and half double crochet over the
first 2 stitches. So put your hook into the first stitch and bring up a loop.
Yarn around the hook, hook into the next stitch and bring up a loop. Yarn around
the hook and take your hook with the yarn through all the loops. And then work
1 double crochet into each of the following 3 stitches. And then slip stitch into the side where
your last double crochet meets and turn your work. For row 16 work 1 single
crochet into each of the first 2 stitches. And work a joined single crochet over the
last 2 stitches. For row 17 start with 1 chain and turn and work 1 single
crochet in the first stitch and a joined single crochet over the last
2 stitches. Then slip stitch into the side and then slip stitch into the next
stitch on the side and turn. For row 18 work a joined single crochet over the 2
stitches and turn and then slip stitch into the next stitch on the side and
fasten off. Now we’re going to work a neatening row
just around the tummy part. So join the brown cotton in the stitch before we
joined our brown last time and work 1 slip stitch in each stitch around the
tummy part back to the tail. And then slip stitch into the tail part
and fasten off. So I’ll just weave in the ends and I’ll
give it a quick press and then we’ll be back to put it on the claws. Now for this
front claw I start about halfway between the front of the tummy part and the back, so it will be about this stitch here. I’m
using my dark brown and I work 10 chain. I miss the first chain and I work 1
slip stitch into each of the next 4 stitches. And then I work 2 chain. That’s for that
little piece there. I miss the first chain and work a slip stitch in the
second chain and then I work 1 slip stitch into each of the next 2 chain
of the original chain. Then I work 2 chain. I miss the first chain and work a
slip stitch into the second chain and then work 1 slip stitch into each
stitch up to the body. Then I slip stitch into the body and
fasten off. And that’s the first claw done. For the
second claw we join our dark brown 4 stitches back from our first claw and work 10 chain. We miss the first chain and work 1
slip stitch into each of the next 4 stitches. Then work 2 chain and work 1 slip
stitch in the second chain from the hook. I’ll do that again it’s not quite
right. And then I work 4 chain. I miss the first chain and work 1 slip stitch
into each of the remaining chain. And then work 2 slip stitch into
the original chain. So 1 into each of the next 2 chain. Then work 2 chain.
Work 1 slip stitch in the second chain from the hook and then work 1 slip
stitch into each stitch up to the body and slip stitch into the body and fasten off. And there’s the claws done. Now for the
wing, using my dark brown I make a magic loop and work 2 chain. Into my circle I
work 1 half double crochet and I pull the circle tight. For row 2 I
start with 2 chain. I work 2 half double crochet into my stitch and 1
half double crochet into the top of the chain. For row 3 I start with 2 chain and turn. I
work 2 half double crochet into the first stitch. 1 half double crochet into the next
stitch and 1 half double crochet into the top of the chain. For row 4 I start with
2 chain and turn. I work 2 half double crochet into the first stitch. 1
half double crochet into each stitch to the end and I’ve got 5 stitches. For row 5
I start with 2 chain and turn. I work 2 half double crochet into the first
stitch and then 1 half double crochet into each stitch to the end and I’ll
have 6 stitches. For row 6 I start with 2 chain and
turn and work 1 half double crochet over each of my 6 stitches. For row 7 I start with 2 chain and
turn and work a joined half double crochet over the first 2 stitches. 1
half double crochet into each of the next 2 stitches and a joined half
double crochet over the last 2 stitches. For row 8 I start with 2
chain and turn. I work a joined half double crochet over the first 2
stitches and a joined half double crochet over the last 2 stitches. And
for row 9 I start with 2 chain and turn and work a joined half double crochet over
my 2 stitches. And that’s the wing done except for a
neatening row. I’m going to work 1 slip stitch into each stitch around. So I’ll continue around the row and
I’ll be back when I get near the end. When I get to the end of the row I
fasten off. And that’s the wing done. Now I’ll start
on the face marking now. I’ll start with the black and I’ll make a magic loop. I work 1 chain and then into my circle I
work 5 single crochet. I pull the circle tight and join with a
slip stitch in the top of the first stitch and then I work 8 chain. For row 2 I work 1 slip stitch in the
second chain from the hook. A joined single crochet over the next 2
stitches. 1 half double crochet into the
following stitch. 1 double crochet into the next stitch and then 1 treble into
each remaining chain. A treble is called a double treble using UK terms.
For a treble put your yarn around the hook twice. Hook into the stitch and bring up
a loop. Yarn around the hook, take your hook with the yarn at the end through
2 loops. Yarn around the hook, through the next 2 loops and yarn around the
hook and through the remaining 2 loops. And we need 1 treble into each stitch,
remaining chain. And then we slip stitch into the circle
where our treble meets, so we miss a few stitches and work a slip stitch in the
next stitch. And that’s the part that goes down the front of the bird. Now
we’ll work this other part at the back. We start with 5 chain. We slip stitch
in the second chain from the hook and then work 1 single crochet into
each remaining chain. We slip stitch into the next stitch on
the circle and fasten off. And that’s the black part of the face
marking done. I’ll weave in those ends and we’ll be back and put on these white
sections. now for this line of crocheting here we join in the second stitch here, I’ve got my white, work 1 slip stitch into the next
stitch and then work 1 single crochet into each stitch up to the join and fasten off. Now for this row of stitching here, we
join probably the second stitch from the end, our white again and work 1 slip
stitch in the next stitch and then 1 single crochet into each stitch to the
corner and fasten off. While I’ve got my white I’ll work the eye. So
I start with a magic loop and work 1 chain and work 4 single crochet into
my circle. I pull the circle tight and slip
stitch in the top of the first stitch and fasten off. And I’ve got a small circle. I’ll just
weave in the ends and then I’ll be back and we’ll work this part here using my
light brown. Now for this bit we join just in the side of the white at the top, so
the one that goes along the top. And we’re going to work 1 double crochet
in to about the third stitch down. So put your hook, yarn around your hook, hook
into this stitch down here, probably miss 1 and into the next 1 and work a
double crochet. So it’s up against the side of our work and then we’re going to
work another double crochet into the bottom of our first double crochet. So
yarn around the hook, hook into the bottom part of your previous double
crochet. And then we’re going to work a third double crochet into the bottom of
the second double crochet. So we’ve got 3 double crochets
sticking out at the side. Next work 2 chain and turn our work and slip stitch
in the top of your first double crochet. Then work 2 chain and slip stitch in
the top of the next 1 and work 2 chain and slip stitch just near the join
there, in the top of the third double crochet and fasten off. So I’ll weave in those ends and I’ll be
back with my gray to attach the beak, just in the bottom there. Now for the beak I
join in the last part I did in the second stitch up from the corner, so in
there. I’m using my gray and I work 3 chain. Now I’m going to work a joined
double crochet and 2 treble over the same stitch as the chain and the next
2 stitches. So I put my yarn around the hook once. Hook into the same stitch as the
chain and bring up a loop. Yarn around the hook and take the hook with the yarn
through 2 loops. Then I put my yarn around the hook twice. Hook into the next
stitch on my light brown, just before the corner. Yarn around the hook and take the
hook with the yarn through 2 loops. Yarn around the hook, take the hook with
the yarn through the next 2 loops. I’ve got 3 loops on my hook. Then I put
the yarn around the hook twice. Hook into the first stitch on the black and bring
up a loop. Yarn around the hook, take the hook with the yarn through 2 loops.
Yarn around the hook, take the hook with the yarn through the next 2 loops. I’ve
got 4 loops left. Yarn around the hook and take the hook with the yarn through
all the loops and fasten off. And that’s the beak done. I’ll work the plume once
I’ve put it all together. So I’ll just weave in the ends and we’ll be back and
put it together. Now here’s my pieces. I’ve got the body, the wing, the eye and
the head markings. The first things I’ll do is embroider a black dot on the eye
and I’ll embroider the markings on the tummy part and the wing. The wing
markings are much thicker than the markings on the tummy. The next things
I’ll do is attach the eye to the face marking, about there. If possible I like
to have a bit of black showing around the edge of it. And I’ll attach the wing
to the body, just in about there. The next thing I do is attach the face marking.
The black part goes up against the side and the brown goes at the edge there. If
it’s a bit big just gather it in a bit to make it fit. For this plume I join my
cotton about 3 stitches back from this brown section, so this stitch here.
I’ll be using my black and I work 11 chain. I work 1 double crochet in the third
chain from the hook. Then I work 2 treble in the next stitch. For a treble
you put your yarn around the hook twice at the beginning. 1 treble in the next stitch and a joined double crochet over the
following 2 stitches. 1 half double crochet into the next
stitch and then slip stitch into each remaining chain. Slip stitch into the head and fasten off. And that’s the plume done. So I’ll just
weave in those ends and I’ll put a few white dots just around the neck there
and then I’ll be back to show you the finished quail. And there’s the finished
quail. If you’ve liked my video please like, subscribe and share. I’m also on
