I've been looking for an autumnal leaf blanket pattern and just found this. Does anyone know if the leaves tessellate enough to make a not very holey blanket?

I've been doing this pattern and the way I did it was in rnd 4 I chained 2 then inside the circle made from the ch 6 of the previous rnd, did the dc, ch 3, and 2 dc (similar to rnd 2 where you work in the ring made from rnd 1). Then ch 1 and in the next circle made in the previous rnd do what is in the "()" again and when it starts saying to dc in first/last dc after/before ch3, DC into the st(s) between the circles made.

I love this pattern, beautifull work. Sadly enough I haven't learned to read an english pattern, perhaps I can figure out to use the diagram :-)

Would this pattern work well with worsted weight yarn?

Yes it would work but it's not as strong and durable as the cotton, cotton holds its shape better
