chestnut leaf crochet tutorial As I was writing this spring, that I've started another project with an element of a composition "Chestnut buds" from Flora Klickmann's book The Craft of the crochet hook. 

Today I'll show you how to crochet a lacy leaf from that edge. I've used two types of a yarn for this project - Maxi to crochet and Miya AltynBasak for a padding cord, both are mustard color. The padding cord is slightly different in shade but it does not matter - it will not visible in our work.

Also, I want to mention, that I do not like to follow strictly by pattern and always make some changes in patterns to fit my gauge and needs. 

The total length of a padding cord for this element is 60 cm. Measure 1.2 meter of Miya and fold it in two. Make a stitch from a Maxi yarn and pull it throught the padding cord loop.

1 chain stitch to fix both yarns. Grab both threads of a PC and free end of a working thread in one bunch and start ctocheting 56 double stitches  over a padding cord. 

Right now there is no need to control a tention of a padding cord - we can do it after we finish a lace part of a leaf

As I've mentioned above, this element will slightly differ from a book version, where leaf has a short stem, but I've used it;s to make a leaf a bit longer. Leave a padding cord for a while, turn *1 d c , 3 ch 12 times, 1 d c*, (I did 13 times)

turn repeat from *  to *

Take up cord 6 d c on cord alone

Now we can pull the paddinc cord and chape it so that curls like a pretzel. The highest tention should be at the begining of a pc, otherwise it will fold when edges are done

turn, miss 3 dc, 3 dc on dc, 4 dc on a cord alone, 1 dc in a loop to end of a leaf

Pull the cord as working on a row, so that the edge does not folds

Around the leaf word over a padding cord 1 dc into outside of leaf, 1 dc, 2 tr 1 picot, 2 tr, 1 dc

6 times of the inside,

The last stitch of an inner edge is done into the first virible dc that of a previous row, once at the point

and 10(11) times on the outer edge. Fix the padding cord before finishing 8(9) frindge of an outer edge, estimate the stitch, where the edging will finish

pull the PC through that stitch, fold the PC and regulate the tention

And continue work over two layers of PC

Finish work with a slipstitch

The motif is ready, we just have to cut the extra ends of a padding cord.

What a love pattern. Thanks again

I have been browsing online more than three hours these days, but I by no means
found any interesting article like yours. It's lovely
price enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the web can be a lot more
helpful than ever before.
