Try making the leaves in different sizes and yarns for different effects. The two solid colors are worked in Cascade 220 with a size F (3.75-mm) hook, and the variegated version is leftover sock yarn and a size 3.0-mm hook (Japanese size D).
To make a picot, chain 3 and slip stitch in the 3rd chain from your hook. Continue working as directed—the picot gives a nice pointy tip to the leaf.
After you chain 5, skip the first chain from your hook and work 4 single crochets into the opposite side of the ch-5 you just made. I worked each sc into the little bump on the bottom of the chain; this photo shows 2 sc already worked.

Next, make a dc in the first stitch and then make 2 dc in each of the next 2 dc stitches, as indicated. On the next stitch, you'll (dc, ch 5, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 3 chs to form stem, dc) all in the same space. Here's a close-up of how to make the stem:

I worked each sc into the little bump on the bottom of the chain; this photo shows 2 sc already worked. After you sc in the last 2 chain stitches, dc in the same stitch from round 1 and continue as indicated.

Continue following the directions around: 2 dc in each of next 2 sts, (dc, picot, dc ) in next st; (sc, hdc) in next st, (dc, picot, sc) in next st.

Finish by making the last point and joining the round: (sc, picot, dc) in next st, (hdc, sc) in last st, join with a sl st to 3rd ch of round. Fasten off. Pull the center end to snug up the center of the leaf, then weave in both ends.

Get creative-you can add beads, ribbon, and sequins or layer the leaves with fabric pieces to make all kinds of projects. A fall brooch would be fun, too!

LindaPermann writes: Hi- I'm sorry that there seems to be trouble with printing the pattern. I have an email in to the tech half of the website to see if we can fix it.

In the meantime, you can try selecting the text of the post (or just the part you want) and pasting it into a Word document. Then you should be able to print it. I'm sorry it's not working directly off of the site! Thanks for letting us know.

LindaPermann writes: Vernajean- I'd love to help but I'm not sure what you mean. The pattern is located in the text of this post just below the introduction (and before the pictures begin). Were you having trouble finding it or was there something in the pattern that didn't make sense?

Vernajean writes: You have a pattern I would like to copy,but can't. I have tried every thing I know of and it don't work. Could you please tell me what I'm doing wrong. The pattern is Autumn Leaves-- vegreen@genext.net
