Worsted weight yarn
G (4.5 mm) crochet hook
1. Read instructions all the way through before beginning.
2. Leaves and berries maybe worked with any size yarn or thread, just use the appropriate size hook for the yarn.
3. Leaf stitches are worked by inserting hook under two loops of the chain. When you work in the unused loop of chain there will only be a single loop. That’s why you work over the tail to make it match the first side.
Picot = Ch 3, slipstitch in 3rd ch from hook.
HOLLY LEAF (make 2)
Round 1: Ch 10, sc in 2nd ch from hook, *hdc in next ch, dc in next ch, picot, dc in next ch, hdc in next ch, dc in next ch, picot, dc in next ch, hdc in next ch*, sc in last ch, picot, sc in same st. Working in the unused loops of foundation ch and over the tail, repeat from * to *, sc in last ch, slipstitch in first sc.
Fasten off, leaving a 6 inch tail for sewing.
HOLLY BERRY (make 3)
Ch 2, 5 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Do Not join. Fasten off leaving about a 6 inch tail. Using your yarn needle, run the tail through the back loops of the sc sts, starting with the first sc. Pull tight to form berry. Tie a knot and use tail to sew the “berries” on item.
