Fall Leaves Tee: Free Pattern

The Fall Leaves Tee is one of my great crochet projects and fun to make. Lightweight and simple, but still gives you a comfortable feeling by wearing it. If you like you can vary up the color of yarn as you wish.

DESIGN INSPIRATION

I named this pattern as Fall Leaves Tee as to imagine an Autumn Season in some countries which started to happen in September and it means their weather is getting cooler. Somehow, this Fall Leaves Tee does not perfect to wear during autumn or cold season, of course. It meant to design and matched it with the color of the dried leaves fallen in my backyard. Every fallen leaves made me wonder the beauty of nature and their life transition on earth.

YARN

For this project I used Bamboo (BAM) in the color of khaki. BAM is a bamboo and cotton blend that I ordered from Cotton House Store in Penang, Malaysia. I can consider this yarn as one of my favorite apart from Milk Cotton. Its texture is so soft, lighter than pure cotton and breath taking. It is only suitable to wear during summer/spring or in hot weather countries. Available in variety of colors. This blend of 70% bamboo and 30% cotton also means that you can create a very light and an awesome project.

SIZING GUIDE

The sizing guide follows as:

XS(S, M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL).

If you prefer to match your foundation chain with your body measurements, alternatively you may chain it by a multiple of 2 plus 1 (means you chain 2 as many as you like, then at the last stitch, you add 3 more chains). These 3 chains will be counted as first double crochet on Row 1.

[Or, to match with the size of your own body, alternatively you may start the chain by multiple of 2 plus 1 (means you chain 2 as many as you like, then at the last stitch, you add 3 more chains). These ‘3 chains’ will be counted as first dc on Row 1].

Row 1:
Insert your hook on the 4th st of your foundation ch to make the 2nd of dc (the first 3 ch is counted as first dc), dc in each st until the end of the row. The total of your dc should be as 83(93, 103, 113, 123, 133, 143). Turn.

Row 2:
ch 3, dc into the next st, dc in each st across. Turn.

Rep Row 2 to Row 5 until Row 51 or until you reach your desired measurement/length.

Fasten off. Leave the long tail for you to weave with the front panel.

Assemble the 2 panels

B. Front Panel

Repeat the same process as the back panel, except for the cluster of dc as I did on row 42.

Row 1 – Row 40:
The same as back panel step. Turn.

Row 41:
ch 3, dc into the next st, dc across. Turn.

Row 42:
ch 3, dc into the next 5 st. To start the cluster stitch, *dc in the normal way by wrapping the yarn over, inserting the hook into dc and pull through 2 loops on the hook. But don’t complete this DC, instead start another 2 more dc in the same way. You will end up with 3 incomplete dc and 4 loops on your hook, then pull all 4 loops. *sk next st, dc into the next 5 st. Rep from * to ** until the end of the row. Turn.

Row 43:
ch 3, dc into the next st, dc in each st until the end of row. Turn.

Row 44:
Repeat Row 41 until the end. Turn.

Row 45:
ch 3, dc into the next st, dc in each st until the end of the row. Turn.

Row 46:
Repeat Row 42 (dc cluster). Turn.

Row 47:
ch 3, dc into the next st. dc in each st until the end of the row. Turn.

Row 48:
Repeat Row 41 until the end. Turn.

Row 49-51:
3 rows of dc.

Fasten off. Leave the long tail for you to weave with the back panel.

ASSEMBLY

Lay both panels flat (front and back) with the wrong side is facing you (as picture above). The front shoulder panel touching the back panel. Use a darning needle to weave them together (weave on the shoulder of two panels). Use stitch markers to pin panels. Fold the both panels to weave stitch along the side seams and underarms.

EXTRA WORKS

The Sleeves

If you want, you may add a few rows of dc around both of your sleeves like I did. As for the sample, I added 3 rounds of dc and finished them with 1 round of sc.

Weave in all of your ends.

Your “The Fall Leaves Tee” is ready.😉
