Waiting for Spring - Esperando la primavera


I just have already had enough of winter for now. Here in Barcelona, where I live, we are having some cold, I would say freezing, days with temperatures in the morning of about 2ºC-3ºC, which are really cold for a Mediterranean city!!.

We are having very cold but sunny days, although the weather man has told that tomorrow will come the rain and the snow in the mountains :-(((

So, I'm really looking for spring to arrive with its warm and longer days... but, until it arrives, I'm trying to bring a little bit of it to my home with this coloured crochet leaves attached to a naked winter branch....

Here is the pattern for the leaves. They're really addictive!!! Hope you enjoy!

Chain 5,

Round 1 - sc in 2nd chain from hook / hdc in next/ dc in next, work (2hdc in last, ch 2, sc in second ch from hook) and 2hdc in last ch.
Work now on the opposite side of  your foundation chain:  dc in next, hdc in next, sc in last st. Fasten off.

Doesn't it look beautiful?
