I’ve been seeing some beautiful leaf patterns in sweaters but the patterns are always in a foreign language. Does anyone know of a good video of how to create leaves, vines and grapes in knitting?
Thanks for any help you can give me.
A search on Ravelry turned up several patterns (a couple not available in English).
Great!! Thank you so much!!
Yes, Ravelry is definitely a good starting point. If you want the design knitted in, try Perfect Leaves Hat, for example. Take a look on Pinterest; you may find some links that aren’t on Ravelry. One that is in both places is this one; it’s more of a knitted-in design than just a leaf you would stitch on: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/leaf-lace-cotton-cuff
Try https://www.pinterest.com/nancyjknit/knitted-leaf-patterns/?lp=true or https://www.pinterest.com/nikkisstudio/knit-leaves/?lp=true for starters.
And try Nicky Epstein books. (Some may be available at your local library.) She designs in both knit and crochet – lots of borders and edgings, flowers – a huge variety. These would be primarily add-on type patterns, rather than a design you’d be knitting into the body of your garment. Have fun with this!
Oh, try taking a look at DROPS, too. I should have thought of them earlier. I was just looking for something else there and ran into their tutorials for leaf designs at https://www.garnstudio.com/video.php?action=search&k=342&lang=en
These are from different patterns they offer, so perhaps looking up some of those patterns would be of use to you. One for a hat is here:
And one for a sweater with a big design on the front and back is here: https://www.garnstudio.com/pattern.php?id=7401&cid=19
Wow, great information. Love the videos!!
Thank you, I will definitely enjoy myself.
