A Crocheted Plant

Inspired by My Artichoke Plants



Step 1: Chain 4, make a ring

Step 2: Chain 3, triple crochet in 1st chain, picot (chain 2, slip stitch in 2nd chain from hook)

Step 3: Slip stitch down triple crochet and into center of ring (1st leaf complete)

*Note: This is not an exact science. As each leaf is different in nature, slip stitching down your leaves also will be unique and varied as you work.

Step 4: (Chain 3, triple crochet in 1st chain) twice; picot, repeat Step 3 (2nd leaf complete)

Step 5: (Chain 3, triple crochet in 1st chain) 3 times; picot, repeat Step 3 (3rd leaf complete)

Step 6: (Chain 3, triple crochet in 1st chain) 4 times; picot, repeat Step 3 (4th leaf complete)

Step 7: (Chain 3, triple crochet in 1st chain) 5 times; picot, repeat Step 3 (5th leaf complete)

{Repeat Steps 2 – 7 at least 2 more times, more if you’d like.}

Note: Leaves can follow same pattern from smallest to largest, or be made in random order, mixing sizes according to personal preference.
