On a very wet afternoon, just the other day, I began to hook up some little leaves. Simple I thought, no pattern required.
After a couple of tweaks here and there, this is what my trusty hook had produced. I think they are rather sweet, so I thought I would share this little leaf pattern with you. To download a pdf version just click here, or full instructions can be found below.
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
Ch8, slst into 2nd ch from hook, then slst into each remaining 6ch and fasten off.
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.
Happy little leaf hooking
