Fall Pumpkin Leaf – Free Crochet Pattern
I have reworked the pattern. Please let me know if there are still issues with it.
I had a request (thank you Robin) for a leaf to go with my Little Pumpkin Beanie pattern. I will be adding it to the Pumpkin Hat pattern you can purchase, but I’m also offering it as a free crochet pattern on here.
Because I tried so hard to get my pumpkin stem to look ‘real’, I figured I would do the same with the leaf. Not as easy as it sounds….at least not for me. I didn’t want the leaf really big, seeing as many of these hats are made for infants/babies and used for photo shoots. My first attempt I’m not going to even show you :), but here’s attempt #2.
I used ww yarn and an H hook.
Ch 14, sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sl st in next 8 chs. (stem made)
Rnd 1: (Sc, 2 hdc, 2 dc) in next ch, (dc, hdc) in next ch, (hdc, sc) in next ch, 3 sc in last ch, you will now be working down the back side of the leaf, (sc, hdc) in next ch, (hdc, dc) in next ch, (2 dc, 2 hdc, sc) in last ch, turn.
Rnd 2: Ch 1, 3 dc in 1st st, dc in next st, hdc in each of next 3 sts, (2 sc, hdc) in next st, hdc in each of next 4 sts, 3 sc in end st, hdc in each of next 4 sts, (hdc, 2 sc) in next st, hdc in next 3 sts, dc in next st, 3 dc in last st, sl st in same st as last dc. Fasten off.
