Using the same type of yarn that I used, the leaf will measure approximately 11cm in length.

Useful information before starting

The processing of the leaf is carried out with the single crochet in relief and is worked in a back and forth row starting from a base chain stitch.

The curvature of the leaf will depend on the number of initial chain stitches.

Lengthen the leaf by continuing to work rows to the desired length.

📗 Abbreviations & meanings (US terms)

  • CH = chain
  • SC = single crochet
  • SLST = slip stitch
  • INC = Increase, 2 SC in the same stitch
  • REP * = repeat from * to * until the end of the row

📜 Crochet pattern of the leaf

Let’s start by doing a basic chain, and the number of initial chain must be an odd number.

ROW 1Start in the 2nd CH from hook and make SC along the row, in the last stitch of the row work 3 SC in the same CH.
Now you are on the opposite side of the chain.
Work 1 SC till the last CH.
NEXT ROWEach new row starts with CH 2, turn the work and skip the first stitch.
Work the single crochets along the entire row, working only in back loop.
CENTER ROWAlways do the double increase (3 SC in the same stitch) in the central stitch, where the increase was done in the previous round.

Continue working SC on the opposite side, always working only in the back loop, skipping the last stitch.

📌 You will have the same number of stitches on both sides

Now continue doing the instructions on the NEXT ROW until you reach your preferred length.
