Crochet leaves

You never know when you'll need a leaf crochet pattern, so I'm happy to share mine with you. A pretty little leaf, really quick to make. Make green ones or autumn leaves or maybe in all colors of the rainbow.

Pattern in Swedish >>


I have used small amounts of different yarn for each leaf. I have tried Scheepjeswol Stonewashed, Scheepjeswol Cotton 8, Drops Baby Alpaca, Drops Muskat and DMC Pearl Cotton 8. All of them works fine! There sizes vary from 2-5 cm long.


st - stitch
sl st - slip stitch
ch - chain
sc - single crochet
hdc - half double crochet
dc - double crochet
tr - treble crochet


Start by making 9 ch.

Round 1:
Start in 2:nd ch from hook. 1 sc, 1 hdc, 1 dc ,1dc, 1 tr, 1 dc , 1dc, 4 sc in last ch, turn around.
Crochet mirrored on the way back i.e: 1 dc, 1 dc, 1 tr, 1 dc , 1dc , 1 hdc, 1 sc. 1 sl st in last ch.

Round 2:
1 sc in each of the following 9 st, ch 2 and sl st in 2:nd ch from hook, sc in the next 9 st, sl st in the last sl st from round 1.

ch 4, slst in 2:nd ch from hook, 2 sl st, finish 1 sl st in the last sl st of round 2

Fasten ends.

  1. Oh this is perfect. I've been enjoying your posts and patterns enormously and have popped you in my sidebar. THANK YOU

    1. I'm very happy that you like my posts! And thanks for linking to my blog!

  2. This pattern doesn't work...
    If I should start with 10 chains and start in the 2nd chain from hook, I should make nine stitches each side... in your pattern there are only 7 plus the four sc in the last stitch. But when I get to these last four sc, I'm not at the last chain??
    Am I doing something wrong?

    1. Sorry to hear that it does not work for you. I might have miscounted the starting chains. You could try to make 9 or 11 if that works out for you instead.
      Sorry for the late reply. Have a great day!
