Take a hook and insert it into the central stitch, then into the first stitch and at the ends into the third stitch, make yarn over and pull through all three stitches on your hook. I am doing it this way because I want to finish the leaf and make the central stitch on top of the other two.

Chain 1 and cut the yarn. Weave in all ends.
