In my sample leaves I used for the green leaf Rowan Tweed SH589, as I thought the flecks of colour would give the leaf a nice natural look, and a sock wool called Strompegarn for the autumn leaf.

But I think it could look nice in a variety of colours. Out in the park today I found horse chestnut leaves in many colours, some with a lot of yellow. Have fun experimenting!

The horse chestnut leaf has a partner pattern for the conkers, which you can see in the edge of the photographs. You can purchase both patterns together at a discount until the end of the year.
