Easy Crochet Daffodil leaf pattern
I like to make my leaves in contrasting greens so that the ‘stem’ stands out. You can make them in just one colour though!
- Using green DK wool chain 8, turn and skip the 1st chain, make 1ss in each stitch of the foundation chain. Fasten off and weave in ends. (7 sts)
- To allow the ‘stem’ to standout this step is worked into the back loops only (BLO). Rejoin the yarn in the BLO of the side edge of the stem in the first stitch next to your fasten off point from step 1. Chain 1 (counts as 1st sc), working into each stitch from the previous row make 1hdc, make 1dc in the next 4 sts, 1hdc.
- Working into the top of the stem (the turning chain of the stem) make (1sc, 1hdc, 1sc)Working along the other side of the stem (the ss side), make 1hdc, make 1 dc in the next 4 sts, 1hdc, 1 dc, chain 1, join with a ss to the 1st Fasten off and weave in ends.
