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. They are knitted flat and so quick to knit up:) I think they are perfect for place holders at weddings or functions, lovely to adorn nature tables, for story telling or play or even just a bowl full of these leaves on your dining room table would look wonderful…

Materials Needed:

Yarn in lovely Autumn tones.
Knitting needles.
Wool needle for sewing up.
