Make Like a Tree and…

It’s fall, y’all!

Have you seen any gorgeous fall foliage yet? To me, autumn is always the most beautiful time of year. But this summer was so hot and dry that the trees seem to be confused about the season- instead of bursting into brilliant color, they’re turning straight to brown and bald!

Since I’ve been missing the colors of the season, projects inspired by fall foliage have caught my eye! Check out the adorable knit and crochet leaves below.

Clockwise from left: crazydazyknits’ Ravelry project, oak leavesninja-knitter’s Ravelry project, Hand Dyed Maple; and wolke100’s Ravelry project, Leaves around the house.

Clockwise from top: Dragonflymomof2’s Ravelry Project, Maple Leaf Bannerehorner1’s Ravelry project, Chesnut Leaf Table Runner and Placemats; and In The Yarn Garden’s Ravelry Pattern, Oak leaves.

These little leaves are so small and simple, you could rake up a pile of them in no time! I love the idea of using them as appliques on other projects- hats, scarves, a pillow, or a tea cozy seem like the perfect place for a bouquet of autumn leaves.

Where would you use them? Tell us in the comments below…or better yet, dig into that stash and show us what you come up with!

Happy fall!

    Oh, I really like these! So glad that you put the Ravelry sights up, so I know where to find them.
    You could … Join them together to make a neck shawl, add them to a shawl that you already have .. For pizazz , crochet them together for a blanket. Lay them on the dash board of your car, cute decor for riding around. Sew them onto a knitted jacket. Well better stop there and go and look through my stash!
    Thanks Emily, just love these and Autumn too!

    The fall leaf version of making lemonade from lemons. Great ideas, and some stunning leaves!

    Emily, these are so precious. One question I have is about I-Cord. I haven’t done this but am willing to learn.
