Eucalyptus come in many different forms and shapes. They are often added to floral arrangements to add greenery and a fresh scent. They dry beautifully and you can often find dried eucalyptus branches at craft stores.
The leaf shape I chose to go with are a little bit longer than what you typically find at flower shops because I find that this shape looks better in my bouquet.
This Eucalyptus Leaf crochet pattern is part THREE of a 4-part (tiny) recreation of my wedding bouquet. Here’s where you can find the rest of the components of the bouquet:

THINGS YOU NEED
- Knitpicks Curio Thread in Sagebrush**
- 1.25mm Crochet Hooks
- 24 Gauge Floral Wire
- Wire Cutter
- Optional: Needle Nose Pliers
- Aleene’s Fast Grab Tacky Glue (or any fast drying, tacky glue that dries clear)

**KnitPicks has discontinued the colours I used in these patterns, so here’s what I would suggest you swap to if you still plan on using Knitpicks Curio #10:
- Spearmint –> Jalapeno
- Cornmeal –> Canary or Tumeric (Tumeric is a very close match to what I used, but I feel like the brightness of the Canary would make the bouquet look more cheerful and fun)
- Sagebrush –> Pistachio (it’s not the best match, but it’s the closest to what I used that is currently available)
- Bluebell –> Blue
- Ciel –> Clarity
with Sagebrush Curio thread
- Cut 6 pieces of floral wire to the following lengths: 1 x 7.5 in., 5 x 4 in.
- Bend the wires in half. You will be crocheting the leaves around the wire.
Small Leaf (Make 1 using the 7.5-inch floral wire)
Ch 9, crochet the following onto your wire: sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc, 4hdc, sc, sl st 2 in the last ch.
Continue onto the other side of the wire bend & ch: sc, 4hdc, sc, sl st.
Fasten off, leaving a 5-inch long tail to wrap around the wire.
Medium leaf (Make 2, using the 4-inch floral wires)
Ch 11, crochet the following onto your wire: sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc, 2hdc, 2dc, 2hdc, sc, sl st 2 in the last ch.
Continue onto the other side of the wire bend & ch: sc, 2hdc, 2dc, 2hdc, sc, sl st.
Fasten off, leaving a 5-inch long tail to wrap around the wire.
Large Leaf (Make 3, using the 4-inch floral wires)
Ch 13, crochet the following onto your wire: sl st in 2nd ch from hook, sc, 2hdc, 4dc, 2hdc, sc, sl st 2 in the last ch.
Continue onto the other side of the wire bend & ch: sc, 2hdc, 4dc, 2hdc, sc, sl st.
Fasten off, leaving a 5-inch long tail to wrap around the wire for TWO of the leaves. For the last one, leave the tail uncut. You will be using the final leaf’s tail to wrap around the remaining stem.
- With your Small Leaf, glue and wrap the long thread tail around the wires until you have 1/4-1/2 inch of covered wire. With wire cutters, cut one of the wires at the point where you stopped wrapping. This will make the stem less bulky as you continue wrapping your other leaves around this main wire.
- Wrap the other leaves in a similar way, making sure that you’re covering 1/4-1/2 inch of wire for each of the leaves. Cut one of the wires on each of the leaves just to make sure that your stem doesn’t get overly bulky.
- Line the exposed wire part of the Small Leaf to the exposed wire part of one of the Medium Leaves. Glue and wrap the wires with the excess thread from the Medium Leaf. Cut the shorter excess wire.
- Continue gluing and wrapping the leaves going from the smaller leaves to the larger leaves.
- When you get to the last leaf, glue and wrap the rest of the stem with the tail end of the last leaf.
