These oversized holly leaves make a fantastic festive decoration.

They are knitted flat and then sewn together. As you sew each leaf together and stuff it, it starts to twist and look like a real leaf.

The berries are made from sparkly dk yarn and there is also a pattern for a tiny fluffy mouse (I made mine in some grey Angora) who can be placed anywhere on the leaves.
