Hi Folks!

Thanks for checking out the Fallen Maple! This decorative knitted maple leaf comes in three sizes and is a great Autumn-themed project. The leaf is knit in sections and sewn together at the end. It is comprised entirely of two-stitch cables, giving it a lovely thickness and making it ideal for textured accent pieces. Although it can prove a little challenging at first, the format is easy to pick up, and the finished product is absolutely worth the effort.

Here’s a quick summary of the pattern based on the original samples:

Dimensions and Yarn Requirements:
Small leaf:
-- 4.5 in (11.5 cm) tall
-- 5 in (12.5 cm) wide
-- 25 yds (23 m) of fingering-weight yarn
Medium leaf:
-- 8.5 in (21.5 cm) tall
-- 9.5 in (24 cm) wide
-- 60 yds (55 m) of fingering-weight yarn
Large leaf:
-- 12.5 in (32 cm) tall
-- 14 in (35.5 cm) wide
-- 130 yds (120 m) of fingering-weight yarn

-- 3.24 mm (US 3) circular or straight needles

Other Materials:
-- Removeable stitch markers (at least 2)
-- Tapestry needle to seam sections together and weave in ends
-- Cable needle (optional)

A specific gauge is not required for this pattern as the leaves are composed entirely of two-stitch cables and slipped stitches. Additionally, each leaf can be blocked to the desired shape.

Types of Instructions:
