How to Crochet Leaves-3 Patterns

These Crochet Leaves include a variety of shapes and sizes, perfect for a variety of projects and applications! 

Whether you are fully customizing a project, or simply adding your own flair to a pattern, it’s nice to find little “extra touches” that can help to make a crochet design your own. Today, it’s my pleasure to bring you a few different leaf designs that you can add to just about anything.

On this page, there are different shapes of crochet leaves(with at least one completely free) that can be made to add to floral, springtime, or summer/fall designs in any configuration you want. In fact, these leaves could also be used for flower petals to create your own custom crochet flowers if you want!

    About These Crochet Leaves

    These leaves are originally part of the 2022 Floral Wreath CAL. As such, the first pattern below is completely free(including the video tutorial below). The other two patterns with their videos may only be available inside of the Crochet Makers Vault(my monthly membership). 


    The official gauge for these leaves is 10 rows and 9 stitches for 2x2in using dk yarn and an e/3.5mm hook. However, I would like to stress that it is NOT critical to exactly match that gauge in order to have success making this flower(or any of the flowers in this series, to be honest). 

    You can easily create ANY of these leaves using other weights and/or types of yarn. However, I would personally recommend keeping your hook size small enough(compared to your yarn) that the stitches stay fairly tight, so that your leaves don’t ultimately turn out floppy and loose. 


    In the gauge provided, these leaves turn out anywhere from 1.5”-3” long. 

    Materials Needed

    To crochet some leaves of your own, you will need: 

    • Approximately 1.5-3 yards of dk yarn for each leaf(I used this yarn line from Paintbox)
    • size e/3.5mm hook
    • Scissors
    • A tapestry needle(this is optional, but using a tapestry needle is my favorite way to weave in ends.)
