Why monstera leaf?
I bet you have already seen monstera leaf thousands of times everywhere, even if you are a true hermit living under a rock. That’s because the world got absolutely crazy about it a few years ago, and it’s still one of the most popular motifs in modern interior design.
Monstera won the game thanks to its amazing leaves, because they are big, heart-shaped and beautifully “cut out”. They have very distinct look and designers can easily use it as an inspiration for both very meticulous and simple projects.
A few words about monstera plant
Monstera deliciosa is also called “the Swiss cheese plant” and it comes from tropical forests of southern Mexico. Its name refers to delicious edible fruits it bears and the “monstrously” abnormal leaves, which are both big and strangely shaped.
It grows nicely indoor in hot and moderate temperatures, so it’s a beloved statement plant for many.
How can I incorporate it in my decor?
Monstera leaf works great as a motif in many different projects, because it has unique shape. You’ll find crochet pieces that use it as a repeatable shape, or as an accent. Some crochet projects imitate the shape of the leaf completely, so the result is an applique, a leaf-shaped coaster, or a full-blown crochet plant.
You’ll find this leaf reproduced in many techniques, such as corner to corner, tapestry crochet, or freeform crochet.
Below you will find a selection of crochet monstera plant pattern ideas that are easy and fun to crochet! I’m sure there’s your next project hiding somewhere, so check them out!
