Today, I would like to share with you this quick and easy crochet leaf applique pattern.
This pattern works up really quickly, uses very little yarn, and you can crochet it with any leftover yarn you have in your stash.
I’m planning to use these leaves as embellishments on a flower wall hanging that I hope to finish sometime soon.
In the meantime, here is the free crochet pattern for these cute leaves.

- A small amount of Yarn
- Appropriate Crochet Hook

The size of your leaf will depend on the yarn and hook you choose.
Below, I summarized a few yarn/hook combinations and the leaf length that you can expect.
|Yarn Weight||Hook Size||Leaf Size|
|Worsted (4, Medium) Acrylic||5.0-mm (H/9 US, 6 UK)||1.8″ (4.5 cm)|
|Worsted (4, Medium) Cotton||4.5-mm (G/7 US, 7 UK)||1.4″ (3.5 cm)|
|DK (3, Light) Cotton||3.5-mm (E/4 US, 9 UK)||1.2″ (3 cm)|
|Sport (2, Fine) Cotton||2.75-mm (C/2 US, 12 UK)||1″ (2.5 cm)|
This pattern is too small to accurately determine the gauge.
