With Thanksgiving coming up we thought it would be nice to show how you can make some autumn-inspired knitted leaves. Leaves make attractive embellishments for garments, soft furnishings and accessories. Add a single leaf as a decoration or group leaves together to form a striking display.

The leaf motif featured here is simple to work. Starting at the lower edge, an increase is worked at each end and a double decrease at the centre – the number of stitches will stay the same on each row. The top is shaped by omitting the increases at each end and just working the central double decrease.

Follow the instructions in the video here to make these lovely delicate leaves. Have fun knitting and Happy Thanksgiving!
