Thing-A-Day 2013 Day 5: Crocheted Leaves

a photo of some crocheted leaves

I have some leftover green yarn, so I decided to crochet some leaves.

I didn’t have a pattern. I just winged it, using single crochet for the thinnest bits and progressing up to quadruple crochet for the widest bits of a leaf.

I used worsted weight yarn. It only looks huge because this is a close-up.

When I have some leftover yarn in a flowery colour, I will add a flower to the centre.
