What you need
For this project you'll need:
- Crochet Hook
- Crochet Thread
Start with a slip knot and 15 chain stitches.
Skip one chain from the hook and do a single crochet into the 2nd loop from the hook.
Now do a half double crochet into the next chain (3rd loop from the hook)
In this step do 2 double crochet into the next 2 chains (1 double crochet into each chains)
Now do another half double crochet into the next and then a single crochet into the next.
Do a slip stitch and repeat the same steps for the other side to complete the leaf.
Notice the holes along the middle line of the crochet leaf? You will need to do chain stitch over and under the leaf pattern through these holes to create the petiole of the leaf.
The crochet stitch will return to the stem again.
Chain 8-10 stitches, this will be the gap between the leaves. You will need 8 chain stitches for the leaves. Repeat these steps until it reaches the required length but before that check out the next step.
After reaching half of length create a loop, this should be big enough to insert a large crochet flower through it.
You may also leave a plain chain stitch (with no leaves) for the part which will remain at the backside of the neck.
And then complete the neck piece with more stems and leaves.
This is how the leaf garland turned out.
Use bright colors for the flowers. You can use simple crochet flower patterns for the flowers.
Glue the flowers on the leaf garland, but you will need to measure and sort out the place of the flowers. The large flower will go through the loop as the closure part. You can place the small flower below the large one.
Wear it and enjoy!
