Do you recognize this pattern? First it was a Christmas Light Granny Square, then using the same pattern I made a Reindeer Granny Square and now it’s a Leaf Granny Square! All from the same basic pattern! Thanks to reader Jennifer McDermott for the email and inspiration! Grab some of those Fall Yarn Colors and let’s get going!

Leaf Granny Square Pattern:
Starting with leaf color…
Magic ring, chain 1 and make 8 SC in ring, join, chain 1
Round 2: 2 SC in first 3 stitches, HDC +DC in next, DC +HDC in next, 2 SC in remaining 3 stitches, join, chain 1
Round 3: SC in first 7 stitches, HDC + DC in next, DC + HDC in next, SC in remaining 7 stitches, join, chain 1
Round 4: 2 SC in first, SC in next 7, 2 HDC in next, 3 DC in next, 2 HDC in next, SC in next 6, 2 SC in last. Join but don’t fasten off.
With cream yarn
Round 5: Join white yarn in 3rd stitch over. Chain 3 + DC + chain 2+ 2 DC all in one stitch (this will be your first corner), HDC in next, SC in next 4, HDC in next, CORNER (2 DC + chain 2 + 2 DC), SC in next 4 (skip middle stitch which is the point of the leaf), CORNER, HDC in next, SC in next 4, HDC in next, CORNER, SC in last 3, join, chain 2
Round 6: DC in each stitch around making DC + chain 2 + DC in each corner, when you get to the black stitches, DC in the back loops only, join to first DC, chain 2
Round 7: DC in each stitch around making DC + chain 2 + DC in each corner, join to first DC, fasten off.
At this point you can feel free to make any border you choose. I used yellow/orange and made a SC in each stitch around and 2 SC + chain 2 + 2 SC in each corner.
It’s important to leave the leaf yarn attached and the loop sticking up from the top of your project.
Insert your hook back into the top of the leaf loop and surface slip stitch upwards to make the stem and back down through the middle of the leaf.
Then you can surface slip stitch around the edge of the leaf if you’d like.
Hope you enjoy adding this project to your Fall Crochet To-Do list!
