For today’s project, let’s learn how to crochet a big leaf. This is a Vermilion Banana Leaf with some casual borders, making it more real.

You can use this crochet leaf as a decoration or as a part of the crochet flower bouquet. We love to match it with sunflower bouquet, or some green crochet flower bouquets with wild flowers.

Why Do We Love This Big Leaf

  • Our Crocheted Large Leaf is a gorgeous and unique project that adds a beautiful and artistic touch to any home.
  • It also includes several color switch sections and options for weaving in ends. The best color suggestion for this project is to use a classic vermilion shade, but there are also several possibilities for variations. If you’d like to add more warmth to the pattern, then use shades of orange, coral, yellow, or even brown as accent colors. For a more softened look, classic shades of gray, beige, and cream could be used.

Materials

crochet large leaf pattern|hookok
  • Yarn – yarn of two colors, green and white.
  • Hook – 2.5mm of the hook
  • Flower rod – 16 inches long x 0.08 inches diameter (40cm x 2mm)
  • Iron Wire – 0.02 inches diameter (0.4mm)
  • Stitch marker
  • Scissors
  • Hot melt adhesive

Gauge

The gauge for the given pattern is not explicitly specified. However, it is important to note that the size of your Vermilion Banana Leaf will vary depending on the type and brand of yarn you used, the type and size of the hook you used, as well as the tension. Essentially, the gauge should be measured as the crocheting progresses in order to ensure the desired size of the finished project.

Stitches and Abbreviation

  • ch– chain stitch
  • sc– single crochet
  • hdc– half double crochet
  • dc– double crochet
  • tr– treble crochet
  • ss– slip stitch
  • spike st– spike stitch (inserting the hook into a lower row to create a longer stitch)

Special Stitches

  • hdc spike stitch: the hdc spike stitch is worked by inserting your hook into the st from the previous row (as if you were doing a hdc). Then, wrap your yarn around the hook twice and pull through all the loops using the hook. This creates a tall stitch that has a spike-like look.
  • 3 sc in same st: the 3 sc in same st (or a “cluster”) is when you work three single crochets in the same stitch. This stitch is used to create a textured effect in a piece and can be used to create edging or a decorative shape.

Notes

  • This pattern is written in US crochet terms.
