Oak Leaf

Free Pattern
by Sherri Screen

I was looking for a leaf to put with the Amigurumi Acorn pattern I was making... and couldn't find one that I liked. So I ended up trying a few techniques, and finally came up with this pattern. The thing I like best about it is the little curl that runs down the length of it, instead of being just flat.

Hook size: G
Yarn: Any yarn, I used a green worsted weight in a brand that is no longer made, I think.
Gauge: Not important.
Abbreviations:
ch = chain
sc = single crochet
st = stitch
lp = loop
sl st = slip stitch
tc = treble crochet
Piece will curl as you work, try to hold it flat to make sure you can see what you are doing.
