Crochet Fall Leaf

The Crochet Fall Leaf is a unique and eye-catching fall decoration that is easy to crochet and simple to weave. I enjoyed creating this Celtic Knot design and watching it all come together as I crocheted the various cords and wove them all. You can make a Celtic Fall Leaf with the large-print ad-free pattern PDF available now in my Etsy Shop here. (Or simply click on any image in this blog post to purchase)

3 Sizes and 3 Diagrams for the Crochet Fall Leaf

For this new Celtic Knot project I am doing something new – there are 3 sizes of diagrams included in the instructions. Each set (large, medium and small) also comes in both Right and Left-Handed versions! The neat thing about these 3 sizes is that the pattern does not change at all – simply use a different sized yarn and the matching hook and you get a different-sized crochet fall leaf! I used a Size 3 (DK weight) cotton yarn for the large leaf, a Size 3 crochet cotton thread for the medium leaf and Size 10 cotton crochet thread for the small leaf. I love how just changing the yarn and hooks creates these 3 different leaves.

Supplies to make the crochet fall leaf - yarn, crochet hooks, measuring tape, stitch markers, scissors and needles

Stitches You’ll Need to Know:

As I mentioned this Crochet Fall Leaf uses only basic crochet stitches: slip stitch, chain, single crochet, half double crochet, and double crochet. There are several cords that you crochet and then weave together following the provided diagrams to get this pretty maple leaf shape.

Applique, Table Decoration, or Wall Hanging!

This Crochet Fall Leaf can be appliqued onto a pillow, blanket or scarf. Perhaps if you are Canadian and have Irish heritage you would like to make a red version of this Celtic leaf and sew it onto a winter hat to show your pride for both Canada and Ireland! πŸ™‚ You could also make several of these leaves to lay on your Thanksgiving table as a decoration or put one on each person’s plate as a unique autumn favor for them to take home. Another option is that you could stiffen the crochet fall leaf so it hangs nicely either on the wall, in a wreath or from your mantel!

Or should I say, “print and weave”! πŸ˜‰

The Celtic Fall Leaf – a Most Unique Crochet Fall Leaf:

This Celtic Fall Leaf is fun and easy to make and looks great among your home decor for autumn or Thanksgiving. If you look closely at the leaf, you will notice that it is actually a simple design with 3 repeating sections made of a traditional trinity knot and basic leaf shape. This crochet fall leaf uses a small amount of yarn so it is a great stashbusting project.
