Top Ten Leaf Inspired Freebies For Fall

November 06, 2018

Here is a repost of a popular post from 4 years ago; my top ten leaf inspired free patterns for fall. No cable needle is required for most of these.. Simple leaf knitting is just some knit togethers and yarn overs. Links are included with each picture caption.

1. Let's start off with a baby dress. Here is Mattedcat's pretty version of Taiga Hilliard's Leaf Love Dress.

2.  Easy to wear Saroyan by Liz Abinante has a lovely leafy border.
3. There's lots of leaves to knit, but I like Little Leaves by Alana Dakos best.
 Any weight yarn is appropriate but they are extra pretty in tweedy yarn.
Knit a bowl full for a fall decoration, or use them as book marks, napkin rings, or appliques.  
You could even make a wreath or a baby mobile!

Alana Dakos also offers a free pattern for Tiny Ivy.

 I also had to share this totally adorb Wee Acorn by Pamela Wynn.

4. Leafy Baby Blanket by Leyla Alieva is a beautiful example of the overall leaf pattern.

5. Knit Cascade by Reva Budrevich for baby's first autumn season.  Make sure you knit it in a softy superwash.

6. You could knit a beautiful shawl.  It's hard to believe that A New Season by Maanel is free.

7.  We could knit some leaf themed socks. 
 Interlocking Leaves by Kelly Porpiglia are very nice, don't you think?

8. Foliage Hat by Irma Dmetrieva.
9.  Leaving Cuffs by Maria Magnussen.

10.  Hemlock Ring Afghan, is an old pattern updated by Jared Floor, aka Brooklyn Tweed.
Bonus 11. Here's one I made over ten years ago. I still have it and think I should pull it out and wear it again!
The Alpine Shrug is originally from Rowan Mag. 42 by Sarah Hatton and is now free.
