Crochet Patterns and Tutorials by Claire from Crochet Leaf

Crochet patterns take up quite a lot of my free time: thinking them up, writing them down, changing stuff, making mistakes, getting them right. But I love this adventure!

I'm always on the lookout for fun stuff to crochet. Maybe flowers, little appliqués, braids, that kind of thing - often small projects that produce an attractive, useable item.

Check out my Pattern Gallery with pictures of all my designs. All the patterns are *free* :)


...And the most popular pattern on the site is...

Try Something New ;)

Solomon's Knot Square

Looks complicated - but isn't :)

I've just added a couple of touches to make the corners a little more square than they usually are with this stitch.

Makes a sweet mat for your houseplant - or you could extend the pattern for a table runner or scarf.


Grace's Flower

This pattern is such fun to work - only three rounds and you end up with a lovely little addition for something special. Join your pieces together to create a truly original little centerpiece.

Other bits & bobs!

I have two patterns for twig trees - the Christmas version, shown below, and a Valentine's tree using some of my little heart patterns.
