Hi, Thanks for stopping by. This post will show you how to crochet a leaf – a nice beginners easy pattern with a video too!
This really is a simple easy design, that uses minimal stitches to achieve the curved effect.
If you can chain, single crochet, Half double crochet, double crochet (USA Terms) – you can make this leaf.
This leaf is super simple, and uses the number of Yarn Overs (YO) you do for each stitch, to change the height of the stitch, which gives it its curve. The reducing the number of Yarn Overs to make the curve come back down again (See the bulge in the middle?)
