Fall Bounty Part 2!!!!

       This is part 2 of the Fall Bounty! As I promised in my last post I will be posting my first free pattern in this blogpost!! Mini-leaf pattern!!! Also I will be adding more pictures and links (for the patterns)...I am so obsessed with making food right now! As I am typing this blogpost my 1 year old great-niece, Kylie (see previous posts for her birth announcement!! And baby shower pics---she is already 1 yrs old) is playing with the knitted foods as is her mother (she is braiding the carrot "stalk") All of the patterns for Fall Bounty foods were found on as free patterns, except my mini-leaf pattern! It is exclusive to this blog!!

First the Mini-Leaf pattern:                                              Abbreviations:
Mini-Leaf                                                                      * KFB- knit through front and back loops
by Mad4marvin                                                               * K2tog- knit two stitches together
Size 5 needles                                                                    NOTIONS:
CO 4 sts                                                                           * tapestry needle
Row 1: Knit
Row 2: KFB every stitch (8 sts)
Row 3: Knit
Row 4: K2tog
Row 5: Knit
Row 6: K1, K2tog, K1
Row 7: Knit
Row 8: K1, K2tog
Row 9: Knit
Row 10: K2tog, K1
Row 11: Knit
Row 12: K2tog

Thread tapestry needle and run through all of the stitches on the needles. Pull tight and weave through ends. On CO end, sew both sides together at bottom to pinch the end of leaf together. This pattern may contain errors because I am not a professional pattern writer. I made it up as I went along...

Now onto the FALL BOUNTY:

S is for Squash
      This little squash was an easy knit, however, I kind of messed up on the top of the squash and it would not stuff quite right...but since I am making it for problem! One thing I have learned about little kids is that they do not care if the pattern comes out perfect as long as they can play with it! Here is the link for the pattern:

     Fall Bounty has been fun to create and I am probably far from finished! I have a list of foods I want to make such as a potato, eggplant, ear of corn, a bunch of grapes, strawberries, radishes...and so much more!!! Stay tuned!!!
