A nice, easy block made in stocking stitch and then the leaves are made separately and sewn onto the plain block. I love the finished result but not so much the stitching on of leaves. The good thing about this block of course is you learn how to knit those cute little leaves which you could use to embellish all manner of things.
Rating - intermediate
Curl - 2
Ends - 8, of which 6 are from the leaves. you can use these to sew the leaf in place.
Finished size 6" x 6"
The reason why I made this block is because someone else had made it too
and combined it with these
To make this beautiful blanket.

I think it is amazing! it just shows how beautiful these blocks can be when they are combined. Triccia has used the leaf border from the book too.
Triccia found all the blocks which she has used for this blanket easy however she has said this about block 61
"First part of pattern with leaf was easy to follow, but second part with decrease and eyelet was trying.
The pattern keeps referring to previous rows in groups, jumping back and forwards. I resorted to writing down row numbers and marking off when I had knitted row."
Thank you to Triccia for allowing me to feature your blanket. :)
Have a great weekend !
