Thank you for checking my pattern. If you get stuck at any point, feel free to leave the comments and I will do my best to help you out
Would increasing hook and/or yearn size make these leave bigger or would they just look silly? 😅 Still fairly new to crochet, but excited to try these!
Yes, right. Increase both yarn weight and hook size
Had no idea trebles would be so painful… lol! Beautiful pattern, however. I’m very eager to use these leaves on my tulip garland 🥰
Patience only patience )))) Wish you a good luck! 🙂
