One Round Leaf (Stemless)
By Jennifer Dickerson
- H (5.0 mm) hook
- Worsted weight yarn scraps of your choice
- Tapestry needle for weaving in ends
(Note: I used a H hook and worsted weight, but feel free to experiment with a variety of sizes and yarn weights)
Leaves shown are about 1 inch wide. However, experimenting with different hooks and yarn will make lots of different and interesting looking leaves.
Foundation: Chain 4 and join with a slip stitch to form a ring.
Round 1: In the center of the ring, work 6 dc, 4 sc, 1 tr, 4 sc. Join with a slip stitch to close leaf and fasten off.
Here it is in column format, if you prefer:
Ch 4, join with a sl st
Join with a slip stitch to close leaf and fasten off.
Weave in ends and you're all finished! Shape a bit with your hands if needed.
