"One Green Leaf"....... FREE Crochet Leaf Pattern #2 Today!

Here is the second leaf pattern.  You will notice that it is very similar to the "Little Leaf" pattern.  This one, though, has a little more width at the base of it.  It's a bigger leaf all around.  It makes a nice look when grouped with a "Little Leaf"!

Skill Level:  Easy

Size:   Completed leaf is approximately 2 inches long (not counting the stem) and about 1 ½  inches 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 known 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 for "One Green Leaf", here it is!!



Leaf Pattern

Chain 8 .  In the fourth ch from the hook, work 8 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 8 dc in the last ch.  Sl st in the first stitch of the leaf.
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.

  10. Chris, thank you for taking the time to share this pattern. I struggled the first time, as well, but instead of being unpleasant- I will be appreciative and watch the video, as you suggested. I hope others who may not have come across so nice wont stop you from sharing in the future.

  11. Sorry, Chris - Tracey again. I watched your video which was perfect. I believe the issue we are having is your written pattern says 8 dc in 4th chain but the video says 4 dc in 4th chain. It makes perfect sense if you watch the video. Again, thanks for sharing.

    1. I have added the correct video to this page. I think you may have been watching the video for "Little Leaf". That one only uses 4 dc at the beginning and the end of the leaf. Thanks for visiting my pages!

  12. Great little pattern! Thank you! I used #10 thread and a 0 hook. Took it one step further and did a double leaf!
