How to Crochet Leaves Part 2/6
So let’s now start my tutorial. This is my leaf and I know it’s hard to show up. The leaf is actually constructed from the inside out, so it’s actually constructed starting with the biggest part and then basically, it’s just a matter of wrapping around and coming back around and around and around and around. So let’s start and here we go I’ll leave that here so you can see that and again—that before I did anything let that kind of flattened out a little bit more. Even though I guess leaves are not perfect. So let’s start our first one.
So starting our first stitch and on first line we’re going to have 17 stitches and this will be the centerpiece of the actual leaf. And I’m using the color that’s easier to tell what I’m do. So we have one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine, ten, eleven, twelve, thirteen, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen and seventeen. So what we’re going to do now is we want to go back over this chain and do single stitches going backward into that chain so let’s chain up one and going to the next piece so go in, going to the next one just push in, grab your material, pull out and then pull through the two. I want to keep doing this all the way back so if you want to skip this part—I’ll stop this video when I get to the end of this line but I’ll pick it up in the next. So we just keep going along for those who hit this side of the stay. Can you see that? You just stick it in, you make sure there are two strings on the top, one on the bottom and you’re going to be perfect every time.
These leaves don’t take very long at all. I have this tutorial within half hour of course separated out so that you guys don’t have to fill the half hour. I’m not one for doing stuff like this, I like squares and octagons and stuff but I found this to be actually quite simple. So I’m going to stop this video here and then I’ll pick up with the next one on what you’re going to do when you get to the end of those lines so there’s two more stitches left.
