Playing in the Leaves
Lace Leaf Collection
HeartStrings knitting pattern #H02
Here's a trio of lace leaf designs to delight anyone and everyone. I chose autumn colors in remembrance of the piles of leaves I loved to jump into. Maybe you and I don't jump into piles of leaves now, but undoubtedly you'll enjoy making a whole pile of these knitted leaves to play in!

This pattern has been a long time a'comin, but here finally is the second installment of designs for shaped leaves in lace that I began several years ago that premiered the stunning Oak Leaf Medallion.
Included in this latest pattern are an Aspen Leaf in trellis lace with serrated edging, a 5-point increase Maple Leaf, and an Oak Leaf with an interesting lace edging construction built around the I-cord stem.
There is no sewing; finishing merely involves weaving in the tails from the start and completion of knitting, then a simple blocking.
Lace or light fingering weight yarn/thread: 10 yards for Aspen Leaf, 14 yards for Maple Leaf, 12 yards for Oak Oeaf. US 2 (2.75 mm) needles suggested. Finished sizes range from 3¼" to 4¼" high excluding stem and 3" to 5" wide. Written stitch instructions.
CAUTION! Once you start making these little leaves, it's hard to stop!

I have gotten to the point that few patterns impress me, either they are poorly written or just unremarkable. The leaf patterns are beautiful, challenging and have been able to teach me something, after more than 25 years of knitting. Kudos!
