About the pattern

This is an intermediate Tunisian crochet leaf pot holder pattern that can be worked up in wool and felted into a fun accessory for your kitchen.

In thinner yarn, it makes a fun fall home accessory or it can also be a part of a fall leaf garland, along with the matching leaf pattern published previously.

The shape of this leaf is typical of plane or sycamore leaves, with seven sections.

The leaf is constructed with short rows and worked in the round in a magic ring.

The shape is achieved by using increases and by casting off stitches.

You will get: two PDF files with full instructions to make the leaf, plus links to videos that show how to make one of the sections.

One file is formatted with columns for space-saving when printing, the other is formatted in a single column, with large text, so it is both a low vision and a mobile friendly PDF.


The finished leaf measures about 30 by 30 cm or 12” by 12” before felting.

After felting, depending on the amount of felting, it should measure about 24 by 24 cm or 9.5” by 9.5”.

You can make it smaller by using a smaller hook, or larger by using thicker yarn and a larger hook that is suitable for Tunisian crochet.


  • Yarn: pure wool yarn for felting, one color in chunky or size 5 weight at approximately 50 meters per 50 grams, 70-80 grams or 70-80 meters for a felted pot holder;
  • Hook - 8 mm hook or hook that gets you gauge – straight Tunisian crochet hook or with cable;
  • Other notions: tapestry needle, scissors, blocking pins and mats if blocking, soap and hot water if felting.
