I have been crocheting flowers for a while now, and I love love love Lollychops’ tutorial (I think it may be her mom’s)… I also love the butterfly tutorial in the same link…
I have been looking for a nice leaf tutorial and haven’t really found one that I liked. I found this one, but the leaves came out a bit small for my flowers… so I decided to make up my own pattern… I’m pretty chuffed with myself…
so here we go… with cotton crochet string (or whatever its called) and a 3.5 crochet hook (Israeli number)
in the second chain from the end, and the next two (3 in total), single crochet
double crochet in the next three chains.
treble crochet (yarn over twice) in the next three chains
double crochet in the next three chains
single crochet in the last three chains
Now you are going to work on the other side of this chain.
single crochet in the first three chains
double crochet in next three chains
treble crochet in next three chains (forgot to take a picture)
double crochet into next three chains
single crochet in last three chains, slip stich and finish off.
Voila! you have a lovely leaf!!! Add it to a flower, or add two!!!
In other news, getting ready for the Emek street fair on Tuesday. Crocheting like crazy… and playing with the macro lens. How did I leave it untouched for so long??
