Oak Leaf Crochet Pattern

fall crochet garland

A few weeks ago, I showed you this autumn garland I had just made.  When I got the idea, I searched around and just couldn’t find an oak leaf pattern that I liked.  So I made up my own.  I’ve never written a crochet pattern before, and I would so love it if you crocheters out there would pull out your hooks and try this pattern out to see if it makes sense.  And give me feedback of course about the parts that are confusing or just plain wrong.  I used size 10 pearl cotton and a USA size 7 steel hook.  When I get the acorn pattern worked out just right, I’ll post it as well.

  1. I love your leaves, acorns and are those chrysanthemums? I love the garland effect. I was wondering if you would share your acorn pattern and the flower pattern with all of us also? 😀

    Thank you!

    1. Hi Nadine! They are chrysanthemums and I can’t really take credit for that pattern; I modified one from a book. The acorn pattern I haven’t managed to write down yet. I always just wing it when I make them. I’m still trying to perfect the cap. There is an image of an acorn cap in my head that I just haven’t been able to realize yet. When I do, I promise I’ll be writing it down!

  2. Great oak leaf pattern. Have just made it & will make more to decorate my daughter’s harvest festival box for school , which will then be given to an elderly person in the community.
    Thank you very much for the pattern.

  3. i just made your oak leaf with no problems. I’m thinking of using it as a motif. I’m trying freeform crochet and think it would work quite well. I used size 3 cotton floss and a size 2.25 needle.

    Thanks again,
    Patricia

  4. I love your blog! After you sc 14, to go down the other side, you’re actually working the sc’s into the bottom of the chain 16? It was the only thing that made sense to me, especially to keep that nreat lacey effect down the middle. After filling in the top chain 7, it says to sc 3, twice, but the other side said twice. Strangely, I did need 3 sc between the bottom chain 7 and the chain 9! I haven’t ironed it yet but it turned out well, although next time I’ll try shortening each chain-loop by one or two. Thanks so much for the leaf, and I hope you post your acorn soon!

    1. Hi Rachael! I haven’t made this in quite a while, but let me see if I can follow. So after you’ve completed the 14 sc, you do the ch 7 which makes the top lobe of the leaf, and then yes you are working down the other side of the original chains. Without actually working through it with hook and thread, I’m not sure what you mean about the sc 3 twice, but if what you ended up with looks good, then you’re set! That’s what I love about crochet; it’s just so adaptable. As they say down her in Oz, she’ll be right mate!
