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.

Love this pattern. However I want to use a 7 oz yarn and would like to know, if any, what adjustments I would need to make? I made one leaf and had a ruffle and wasn’t sure if it would work itself out or if I needed to block it. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I am doing this pattern but having trouble with round 8 do I skip all the stitches to get to the 4 before the chain 3 space, cause that is a lot of stitches to skip

I love these! I'm making these for my daughter's Mimi. I just finished around 7. I have a question. Did anyone have problems with the edges curling and not wanting to stay flat?

Most projects like this will "curl" around the edges. The only way to get the leaves to lie flat is to block the finished project. Pit it in place on a towel, paying particular attention to the curled edges. Wet it thoroughly with a spray bottle, smoothing it as you go. Let it dry completely before removing the pins. I did this with mine, and it worked like a charm.

Thank you. I had just done it wrong. They still curl but like you said once you smooth them down they will be fine. I had to make my own adjustments to each of them that I made.

Is This made from the cotton dish cloth yarn? I am currently working with worsted weight, as a practice, and its all ruffled and will not lay flat. Also, in the turns I have these loop things. They seem to lay in line with what was before it, but I am just checking to see if this is right.

Hi, I'm having trouble following the pattern at row 5...right now it looks very messy, no indication on the pattern how many groups of 4dc(ch3) I'm supposed to have upon completion of row 4...thanks for any advice and info, Erica

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?

Thank for this easy to read pattern, it's the first pattern I have ever successfully been able to understand! I am at row 13 currently, and can't wait for this perfect fall table runner to be in my home!

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

Beautiful and original! My sister lives in the woods, and I think I'll make her some of these for Christmas. I think the pattern would also look great as a rug, with several strands of yarn and a big hook.
