Knit autumn oak leaves

Originally posted in September 2013:

 

Autumn is such stunning season.  Beautiful shades of red, brown and gold are all around us.  This majestic tree is right in front of my workshop, need I say more?  If I take a small break from painting, or other daily chore, I just look at this tree and feel so peaceful.

Nature influences me and my creative work.  Especially changes in color in nature so when I visited our local goodwill store I was so happy to find two packages of tapestry yarn in all those inspiring autumnal shades such as red, gold, orange and brown. (take a look at the price tag!)

This is 100% virgin wool so when you see it..grab it.  In the evening hours I made a few autumn oak leaves from a pattern I found online at www.naturalsuburbia.blogspot.com.   When you are visiting her blog search “autumn oak leaves”  and you will find her tutorial.  I am sorry but since this is not my own pattern I am not permitted to give instructions on this blog.

It just takes about an evening to make one leaf, and I can tell you this: it is addicting!

Don’t you love those leaves?  You have a few ideas how to decorate with these leaves?  I am thinking to add them to my fall table decorations.  But you can also sew them to a hair band, turn them into a brooch or maybe sew them to a scarf.  let me know what you will do with those cute knitted oak leaves.

  1. You could use these on a wreath too!

  2. I just love the rich colors of fall! Taking a walk and hearing the crunch of leaves is one of my favorite things to do. And those little knitted leaves are just darling!
