Made from minute quantities of leftover (sock) yarn, these leaves make lovely little gift tags. Or they can become gifts in their own right – ideas and pictures can be found in the pattern. Just the kind of project for a few stolen moments: portable, easy once you’ve made a couple, and finished in no time. The instructions are for three different sizes.

Finished measurements
Approx. 3 x 4 cm (1.2 x 1.6”); 3.5 x 5.5 cm (1.4 x 2.2”); 4.5 x 6.5 cm (1.8 x 2.6”), width x height for sizes S, M and L respectively, excluding the stalk.

More information and inspiration can be found in this blog post.
