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


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


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


Prachtig die krans en de kleurtjes bedankt voor het delen Ik ga hem zeker maken

I've just discovered your site today and am so excited. I'm so looking forward to making a wreath before too long. I love your fern leaves and also your delightful helebore flowers. Thank you so much for sharing your work. X


Just begun work on one of you wreaths, thank you so much for sharing your lovely ideas!


Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful patterns, have made one fern leaf so far, just to see if I could, and it is almost beautiful! ; )

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.

Gillian McM

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!
