Create Cute Coasters with our FREE Crochet Leaf Pattern!

Autumn may bring darker evenings and cooler weather, but it’s not all bad – the stunning colour changes that we see in nature at this time are certainly a sight to behold! Bright green leaves slowly change to gorgeous gold, burnt orange, and fiery red shades as they fall from the trees. But don’t fret about raking the lawn just yet – instead put the kettle on, put your feet up, and get to work on our latest free crochet pattern – this gorgeous autumnal crochet leaf! These beautiful crochet leaves take around 30 minutes to create, and would make fantastic coasters… or alternatively you could string them together to create eye-catching autumn bunting! Check out Mandy Cameron’s crochet leaf pattern below, and get your hook ready…

Time to Make: 30 minutes per leaf, approximately

Skill Level: Accomplished Beginner

You Will Need:

Abbreviations:

  • adjustable slip knot = magic ring
  • ch = chain
  • ss = slip stitch
  • sk1 = skip/miss next stitch
  • dc = double crochet
  • 2dcinc = 2 double crochet into next stitch
  • Htr = half treble crochet
  • tr = treble crochet
  • 2trinc = 2 treble crochet in next stitch

Top Tip: When joining rounds, make sure you pick up 2 parts of the ch stitch. If you only pick up one you will create a loose stitch and a hole.

Make an adjustable slip knot and ch3 (acts as first tr).
