Here is my latest berry baby hat (from this pattern: http://randomstitches.wordpress.com/...1/hello-world/)
I haven't figured out exactly how the designer made her leaves fold on top a bit in such a neat way, but I still like mine. I added one leaf of Nicky Epstein's leaf fringe (from her Knitting on the Edge book) to the end of the i-cord. Both sides of the leaf are knit separately and sewn together. The hat and the leaf are quite simple to do.
Actually, Abbily, I'm giving you credit right now for giving me the idea to use leaf for the end (I'd made the leaves before) because you put a leaf on the side of the "stem" of yours, so thanks for that.
