Tried this last night with some variegated green sock yarn and a US "C" hook.

Beautiful!

Much nicer than any similar pattern I've tried before.

I did the first side through the back bumps of the chain stitches and the second side through the back loop only of the front side of the chain stitches. This allowed the first color in the yarn to show through on the front as a shallow zig zag line and to contrast with the later colors. Then I left about 18 inches of yarn at the end before I cut and I stem-stitched up along the back spine so that no 'dots' appeared and again the different shades of the yarn contrasted with the spine. It also gave the stem a three dimensional quality.

Great fun.

Thank you very much.

what colors did you use for the ferns, and what does DK meabs

Victoria

Hi, love this pattern, tho I wondered if I wanted to up scale this with having to use bulky wool how might I do that? I fancy some life size fern leaves like a foot or more high... Thanks Victoria

I just finished my first fern frond. i used scrap yarn and a size f hook. i cant wait to get the proper yarn and hook. thank you for sharing. i also noticed the typo on the large leaf.

Dear Lucy, these are absolutely beautiful, I've made two already - I decided to do a spring wreath with fresh green ferns because here in New England the winter is so awful, we long desperately for spring, which doesn't come till May! I wanted to point out what I think may be a typo - when you go back down the 2nd side of the fern the instruction for the x-lge leaf reads: "Chain 6, sl st in 2nd chain from hook, sl st in next 5 chains {1st X-large leaf made}". I think it should say "sl st in next 4 chains" - you can't have more than 5 total in a 6-chain leaf, if you see what I mean. I hope this is helpful. Again, thanks for all the beauty and love you bring into our lives!

Suzy Compton

The national emblem of New Zealand is the silver fern leaf so I think lots of Kiwi crocheters would love this pattern! Even though I am a knitter I will now have to learn how to make these for my daughter, who spent a year in NZ and loves the country very much. Thank you so much for the wonderful pattern and step by step instructions.

Jacqueline Ford
