Free Crochet Leaf Pattern | Free Crochet Patterns

This simple and cute free crochet leaf pattern is so quick to work up that you can make a branch full in a very short space of time.

I’ve added them to crochet wreaths I’ve made,  along with using them as an applique alongside crochet flowers on blankets, hats and many other of my crochet makes.

They also only require a small amount of yarn to make so I consider them a stash buster! Remember that not all leaves are green! Think about burnt orange or russet red  for that fall foliage we all love!
