Oak Leaf - Knit lace oak leaf medallion
HeartStrings knitting pattern #A54
Here is a beautiful small lace piece in the shape of a leaf of the majestic Oak tree. This project is rated as "mindful knitting", i.e. it will take careful attention as there is little repetitiveness to the rows. But otherwise the knitter familiar with basic lace knitting can expect to have a fun knit with this pattern (and probably will not want to stop at making just one). We've seen these oak leaf medallions used in a variety of ways: small doilies, coasters, tasseled bookmarks, fall holiday decorations and appliqué embellishments. For what will you use yours?
Size of your leaf will depend on needle and thread used. Guidelines in pattern for anywhere from #30 crochet thread to size 5 pearl cotton. Shown in size 5 perle cotton on size US 3 needles for finished size of 6" by 4" excluding stem. Includes both charted and written instructions.
In case you are interested, here is a blog post I wrote about the story behind designing this Oak Leaf.

I wanted to thank you for creating & selling such clear & beautiful patterns! I did an oak leaf last weekend, after letting the pattern sit for a few weeks, because I was afraid of it. Once I jumped in, though, it was so clear & understandable that I had few problems, even though I'm a novice knitter. Again, Thank you, and I look forward to doing more of your patterns!
