I crocheted another leaf. You can see from the photo that I was more relaxed when I made this one – my tension is not so tight so the leaf is bigger. The pattern is below.
Leaf Pattern (UK terminology)
- 15 ch
- 1 dc into 2nd ch from hook, 1 dc into each ch except last, (1dc, 3ch, 1dc) into last ch [this forms the tip of the leaf], 1 dc into ch along opposite side of foundation ch, 2 dc into same place as last dc [this forms the base of the leaf]. For the remainder of the pattern, dc into the back loop (when viewed from the right side) of each dc. 1 dc into each of next 10 dc, 1 ch, turn work over.
- 1 dc into each dc until the first of the dcs at the base of the leaf. Don’t forget to work into the back loop only – on this reverse side this means working into the front loop. 3 dc into centre of 3 dc at base. 1 dc into each dc except last 4 dc, 1 ch, turn work over.
- Repeat step 3, remembering to work into the back loop of the dcs, until you have the number of points on your leaf that you require.
- Work down to the base of the leaf as before but work the last two sts as ss and finish off in the centre dc of the base.
