A "Little Leaf" ....... FREE Crochet Leaf Pattern!!!

Today I was looking out of my window and, seeing how green and leafy everything has become, I decided to write up a few of my leaf patterns.  On this post is the first of at least two patterns today.  I use leaves on many of the hats and purses that I design, give away and sell so I like to have easy, quick and cute patterns.  I hope that you will try this little leaf and use it on many of your projects!!!

Skill Level:  Easy

Size:   Completed leaf is approximately 1 ½ inches long (not counting the stem) and about 1 inch wide (this will be determined by your  tension, gauge, size of yarn and size of hook.)

Use Size G Crochet Hook  (I used this size hook to get this leaf, but you can actually use any size hook to get the size that you want…..try all kinds of sizes!  It’s fun to see what you can come up with!)


Materials Needed:

-  Small amounts of  Aran weight yarns (#4) in color of your choice   (For a leaf, I would use various colors of green, but I have also been know to make much more colorful leaves, too!  :)
-  Crochet Hook, Size G/4.25 mm
-  Yarn Needle  (Used for working in loose yarn ends)

Gauge:  Gauge doesn’t really matter for this pattern.  Just try different hooks to get a bigger or smaller leaf.

If you would like to watch or follow along with my video, "Little Leaf", just here it is!!



Leaf Pattern

Chain 8 .  In the fourth ch from the hook, work 4 dc.  Work 1 dc in the next  ch.  In the next ch, work 1 hdc.  In the next ch, work 1 sc.  In the last ch, 1 sl st, 1 ch, 1 sl st.  Now work up the other side of the leaf.  1 sc in first ch.  1 hdc in next ch.  1 dc in next ch.  Work 4 dc in the last ch.  Slip stitch in the first stitch of the leaf.  To end, ch 1, cut yarn leaving 15 inches (to attach leaf to hat, purse, or whatever you choose) and pull through. 
To add the stem, ch 5.  Turn and 1 sc in each chain.  Sl st in the first stitch of the leaf. 

Fasten off and keep 15 inch length of yarn to sew leaf onto hat or purse.

Weave in the loose end at the beginning of the leaf.
