Crochet Tunisian Leaf Tutorial






This is a very creative way to crochet a leaf. I suggest following along with the video since this is an advanced type of stitch. I used medium worsted yarn and an E hook, however you can use any type of yarn and hook depending on big you would like your leaf. It measures about 1.5 to 2 inches . 

Abbreviations:
ch=chain
sl st=slip stitch
sc=single crochet
