Little Leaf

Little Leaf Pattern.

I used drops cotton dk and a 3.5mm hook.  All instructions are using English terminology.

Slst – slip stitch  

st – stitch

ch – chain  

dc  – double crochet  

htr – half treble  

tr – treble  

dtr – double treble

Central Vein

Ch8, slst into 2nd ch from hook, then slst into each remaining 6ch and fasten off.

Leaf Body

Join chosen colour thread to 1st st at bottom of leaf vein.  Ch1, dc in next st, htr in next st, tr in next st, 2dtr in next st, tr in next st, htr in next st, dc in same st (you should now be at the top of the vein).

 ch3, dc in same st, htr in same st.

You now need to reverse the pattern down the other side of the leaf.   This time working in the back loops only. 

So, tr in next st, 2dtr in next st, tr in next st, htr in next st, dc in next st, slst in next st.  Fasten off to finish and weave in ends.
