I've been struggling for a way to make a leaf that I really like and this is it! I love the way you end up with a neat chain around the outside on both sides, and the sharp point on the end. Thanks!

thanks for this pattern [as well as your zinnia & scarf]!!

just wanted to let you know that there's a glitch on the youtube video for this leaf pattern ... it stops at 1:58 so the last 4 mins. can't be watched. :(

I love the look of this leaf! However, I am having problems with the end of row 1. I do the ch 1 and then I am suppose to slip stitch in the ch1. When I do that I can not seem to pull it thru the chain left on my hook help???

Jenn said...

Hi cynh, Maybe you could try making your ch a little looser. Also, go through the back loop of the chain. Another thing you could try is switching to a smaller hook just for the sl st.

Hope this helps,

Jenn

What size crochet hook do you use for this?

Jenn said...

Hi Michelle, The most important thing is to use a hook that is appropriate for the weight yarn you have chosen. If you are working with worsted weight, an H or I would work well. If you are using a sport or DK, go a little smaller like a G.
