Maple Leaf Forever Lucky Penny Holder
Celebrate Canada’s 149th Birthday by making a Maple Leaf that will hold a lucky penny! You can attach a necklace chain to the top of the centre to use it as a pendant, or just keep it in your wallet or bag for good luck! NOTE THAT THESE ARE NOT MEANT TO GIVE TO YOUNG CHILDREN, AS COINS ARE A CHOKING HAZARD. Though the coin will stay inside the holder in ordinary use, the yarn can stretch and the coin come out.
You will only need one skein each of white and red embroidery thread (any brand is okay!) If you don’t have embroidery thread, try use size 10 crochet cotton.
GAUGE: after you make the centre you will know if you need to make it tighter or looser…it is only a few stitches, so won’t take long if you have to re-d it :)
Please let me know if you spot any errors or need any help. Thanks!
