It’s autumn! Up here in the mountains, the leaves are already starting to turn and it’s cooler every day.
Okay, I’m lying. There’s been near record-breaking heat and it feels just like summer. But the leaves really are quite pretty this time of year.
In honor of my second favorite season, I decided whip up a pattern for these crochet aspen leaves.
Whip up. Hee hee. Oh, ha ha.
So it took a little longer than the phrase “whip up” might lead you to believe. But I still managed to watch a whole bunch of football while I worked this one up.
Wanna give it a try?
Crocheted aspen leaves
Yellow worsted weight yarn
Size H/8 (5 mm) crochet hook
Round 1: Ch 4, join to form a ring (or use a Magic Ring). Into ring, sc 9, join
Round 2: Ch 2, work 2 dc in each of next 3 sc, then [3dc, 2dc, 3dc] across next 3 sc, then work 2 dc into last three sc, join
Round 3: Do not chain! Sc in next dc, ch 3, sc in next dc, join with a slip stitch and bind off. Weave in ends and you’re done!
Now I need to decide what I’ll make with all of them… A scarf? A mobile? A garland? What are you going to make?
If you do make something, leave a little note in the comments – I want to see what you come up with!
