This pattern uses chain, slip stitch & single crochet. You will need to know how to work with padding cord and how to read charts.
Crochet thread and appropriately sized hook. Suggested: size 10 & 1.75mm hook, size 20 & 1.5mm hook, size 30 & 1.25mm hook. Leaves will be 1.5″, 1.25″ and 1″ long respectively.
Not essential, use medium tension on all stitches except the chains which should be done loosely.
Make turns counterclockwise. Not only does it give a slightly smoother edge, the chains will disappear if you make turns clockwise.
I use a long tail, 16″ to 24″, as the padding cord. Pull padding cord after each row, pull more tightly to make leaf edges rounded.
Making the stitches into BLO will result in a more textured leaf, try both ways and see which you prefer!
