Thistle Tim is leaf boarding in the snow and he is enjoying it very much. Did you already see the video of Thistle Tim leaf boarding? Be sure to check it out here:

This is a free crochet tutorial for the leaf board. You need a crochet hook size 2.5mm (US number 1.5), a tapestry needle and some dark and light green yarn suitable for this size crochet hook. If you have already made the Thistle Tim flower doll crochet pattern, use the same hook size and yarn weight.

ch: chain
sc: single crochet
inc: increase (2 sc in the same stitch)
dec: decrease (crochet 2 stitches together)
(..): the total number of stitches for that row
