Crochet Fern Pattern

Inspired from the woodland area in our garden today I am sharing with you a crochet fern pattern. We are very lucky to have a large collection of native ferns in our garden of all shapes and sizes. I love watching these amazing plants grow and unfurl their frongs creating a bursting display of greenery.

In this pattern I am sharing two variations of the crochet leaf. First one is designed to create the long trailing full grown leaf, while the second version is to create the young unfurling frongs. You can use your leaves to create a forever plant for your home, or create a small selection as I have and attched them to some fabric to create a beautiful delicate crochet motif.
