For anyone looking for the maple leaf design, the blog has been taken down but still exists on the Wayback Machine : https://web.archive.org/web/20150414070916/http://happyberrycrochet.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/how-to-crochet-maple-leaf.html

You are so talented and so generous. This is wonderful and gorgeous! Thank you so much for sharing. I am so glad to have found you.


I'm enjoying making this garland, but the maple leaf pattern link is broken. How can I get the pattern for it?


I know it is not Autumn but I am 100% making this project ASAP. I just LOVE it!


Gracias. Un placer ver tu gran labor.Linda vida Saludos desde Colombia 🇨🇴💟


Hi. Your garland is gorgeous! All my daughters now live in homes with fireplaces and I’d love to make each of them one. However … we live in Canada, so a Maple Leaf is a must in the garland, and I don’t see the pattern you used. I tried the link to Happy Berry Day but the blog has been taken down. Is there any chance of getting a copy of the Maple Leaf 🍁 f pattern that you used?

Martha Houston

Thanks so much for sharing your knitting crochet project it's absolutely beautiful


Hello there!! Love this and I’m getting ready to make one of my own!! How did you make the little leaves for the berries themselves?

Nancy Robinson

Oh my gosh, this is so beautiful!


Hi Lucy! I know this is old, but I thought I'd try...do you have a list of the colors you used for this garland and the pumpkins? I want to place an order for the right colors and for an afghan kit. I live in the US. Thanks!

Lori Daly

This post was many years ago so I am not sure I will get a response. When making the garland you said to measure out a piece of yarn that is 160cm or 63 inches but if you do that and then crochet all the leaves to it the sizes reduces significantly. Wouldn't you need to start out with a piece of yarn triple or more the size you need so as you work it up it will become the size you need? This point confuses me. Please help!


Can I get the patterns of all your leaves. What a lovely winter scene.


Fabulous - am going to have a go, your instructions look lovely and clear unlike some patterns. I have loads of bits of autumnal coloured Stylecraft DK I can use.

Just so beautiful and makes one feel good.

Hello Lucy,
I love all your leaves and berries and seeing them all in a pile made me think just how beautiful they would be attached to the blanket as if the wind had swept them across, lying in a heap some of them. I love the autumn colours and i think that seeing all your lovely leaves and berries makes me want to get 2 of the packs so that i can make a larger blanket and also give me enough to make my autumn happen and stay just that wee while longer. Thank you for getting excited to share these beautiful colours with us.

Oh, my word. This project is sheer perfection. Just stunning. I want to come over to your place and join you on your sofa under your beautiful blankets. Then just have a coffee with conversation while gazing at that cozy scene you have created......your photos are excellent. Thank you for sharing your craft and patterns. You are such a generous person. Happy Fall!

Knocked it out of the park again! (A baseball reference.) Thanks for sharing your love of life through crochet!

Kerry Lucas

This is absolutely beautiful. Thank you for sharing it and for making the instructions so clear. X

This fall garland is brilliant and my absolute favorite of anything you've done. Thanks for sharing.

Beth in Maryland

SO adorable and inspiring! Many, many thanks, Lucy.


That is so lovely! I love the acorns :)

Jill farrell

Oh Lucy as usual
You did it again.. I don't look as often on here but I know you will have something beautiful on the go. I'm sooo jealous of your talent even the sock knitting ( yet to do that😉) I have two polystyrene circles and these would be fab on them. Congratulations on your awards too your amazing. Can't believe B is 7 I remember seeing a pic of you pregnant with him!!! Take care and warm hugs would not have taken up crochet if not for you xx

Gillian Roe

It's just gorgeous, in all it's exuberant, autumnal glory. Entwining the little fairy lights was a brilliant touch. I love it.

I have a real hankering to make a string of crocheted vintage fairy lights at the moment, something like this....
I mean, what a brilliant way to use up teeny tiny yarn scraps in acrylic DK.... Talk me out of it, please Lucy, I don't have the time! x
