Autumn Oak Leaf Knitting Pattern

Happy Sunday everyone:) As promised, here is my pattern for a knitted Autumn English Oak Leaf. This was really an enjoyable pattern to design.

    The leaves are some of my favorites! And much less likely to crumble all over the floor than the usual kind.

    They’ll make great place cards or table accents too. Another great pattern!

  12. Melissa Plank October 11, 2010 at 12:53 pm #

    Lovely little pattern, I’m excited to try it!

  16. mother of squirrel October 13, 2010 at 2:01 am #

    Hi Linda-
    I just made an oak leaf with your pattern and just wanted to point out that row 9 had a small mistake.
    It should read
    k2tog,k2,purl 1,knit 2, k2tog.
    (you just forgot the knit 2)

    thanks for sharing your pattern

  17. Linda October 13, 2010 at 6:21 am #

    Dear Mother of Squirrel,
    Thank you so much for letting me know. I have corrected the error:)
    Take care.

  24. Inspiration Fibers October 15, 2010 at 7:40 pm #

    Great little treat! But, I’m a little worried. The leaves look . . . ummm . . . addicting!!! :) I’m sure you can’t make just one, you need a whole table covered in them!

  25. Angela October 15, 2010 at 8:34 pm #

    Love the leaves! Totally featured them on my site. :)

  26. jessecreations October 16, 2010 at 1:52 pm #

    So cute! I knit up a few of your pumpkins already and I love them! Now I should make a few more and some of these leaves and put them together in a fall display. :)

    Oh, so beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing. Can’t wait to make one, or two…… Happy Handwork!

  28. K October 17, 2010 at 11:36 pm #

    Oh, Linda. Here I am, surfacing again. The house has been put back into some kind of order. Even the shifting of dresser and closet into Autumn mode has at least begun (the piles on the floor attest to this). Friends are back home and in better shape (for now), bills finally paid and all but the fence-jumping dog somewhat settled. I have almost caught up on all the bloggy bits I’ve been missing all these weeks.

    But I’ve saved you for last, here. And as always, you lift my spirits. How do you do these things? how do you have time – not only to make the designs, but to write them down and photograph them so clearly and beautifully??

    If the leaves themselves had not bolstered up my bewildered heart, your generosity certainly has. For the hundredth time – thank you.

  29. Kelly October 28, 2010 at 5:34 am #

    So sweet! Thank you for all the lovely patterns that you have shared on your blog! So inspiring. :)

  30. NutsandOats November 7, 2010 at 2:18 am #

    These are so cute!

    I’m going to knit up a bunch of autumn things for Thanksgiving and let all my aunts, uncles, and cousins take what they want! :)

    These are perfect!

  31. margaritas November 17, 2010 at 12:29 pm #

    Thans, I love your patterns!

  32. Rachel November 23, 2010 at 7:24 am #

    Yay! More fall leaves!

  33. Rosalía November 26, 2010 at 12:15 pm #

    Thanks for share your beautiful ideas. I’m planning to put these leaves in my vest ” Luces de Otoño”. I hope it will be a good choice.

  34. Catherine November 29, 2010 at 12:55 am #

    Thank you so much for posting the oak leaf pattern.
    I have been looking for a way to welcome my D.I.L. and future D.I.L. to the family.
    These are perfect. The family name is Noakes which comes from the seven oakes area of England. Over time the name became shortened to Noakes. Each young woman will get 7 oak leaves.

  35. Ellyan July 20, 2011 at 12:17 pm #

    Absolutely what I needed for a project – thank you so much!

  36. Anonymous March 23, 2012 at 12:27 am #

    knit your i-cord with 3 stitches first then you have the three stitches to start your leaf with, saves trying to pick up stitches and IMO makes it neater :)

  37. Anonymous July 2, 2012 at 4:08 pm #

  40. Susan Benesch November 20, 2012 at 8:59 pm #

    Thank you for this very nice pattern. If I find the time before Thanksgiving, I might make a few to share with my 96 year old mom. My husband & I are traveling for 6 hours(rt) to bring dinner to her. Would love to bring some fun along too.

  41. Heather November 21, 2012 at 8:04 am #

    I need help! This is the first time I have followed a pattern. I was so excited to get to the last row and then I couldn’t figure it out. I got to the 1st bind off, but do not understand what to do and then attach yarn to the next stitch. ??? Thanks in advance for your help.

    Also, I really like your site and all your great work.

  42. olive January 7, 2013 at 8:36 pm #

    I love these leaves, especially the colours, I am going to knit an Autumn shades beanie for eagerly awaited grand-daughter and think a collage of leaves would look great, thanks for giving me the idea.

  43. Ashley October 6, 2013 at 7:19 pm #

    What size needles do you use?

  44. gritsintn June 17, 2014 at 2:07 pm #

    I, too, have gotten to the first bind off and don’t know what to do by attaching the yarn to the next stitch. Please help.

    I love Autumn!
