[Update: Due to popular demand from those who do not know how to crochet, I have made this “Fall Leaf Charm with Keyring & Clasp” available in my online shop as a made-to-order item. Please allowed up to 2 weeks for it to be ready for shipment. Click here to order.]
My new plain white raffia tote (pattern to follow soon) needs a new charm for embellishment, so I crochet some fall leaves and string them up to make a simple charm. Just love how the fall leaf charm spice up the boring white tote. I have to say that it is another easy and quick project to whip up in a day. I used raffia yarn for this fall leaf pattern since it matches with the white raffia tote I have just completed, you could crochet it by using your leftover yarn from other projects too.
The crochet pattern of this fall leaf pattern comes in 2 forms, a written instruction, and a chart diagram. This fall foliage is about 3″ x 5″, crochet from raffia yarn and with 2.5mm hook. The vein is sewn on with a tapestry needle. In the event of using other yarn to crochet, you will get different sizes of fall leaf according to the weight of the yarn and hook size you are using.
“Falling leaves tumble from the interlocking branches above, branches that grow so thickly only bright gaps of sunshine break through. As autumn marches toward winter there will be only those fine strands of brown in the distance and the sunlight will cascade to the forest floor unhindered.” ~ By Angela Abraham, August 12, 2015.
Happy crochet and enjoy the fall season with all the shedding of leaves, cooler atmosphere and longer nights. I would prefer to stay indoor to do my craft and keep myself warm with a cup of a cuppa. How about you?
