This motif is worked entirely on the PC in the back loops.
(making the leaves counter-clockwise from the bottom right leaf, this is all in one piece. You are working a little hidden stem behind the leaf first, which is not visible in the final piece, then building the leaf from the center out. You continue making part of the visible stem each time you finish a leaf.)
32 sc on the PC, turn, skip the first 2 stitches, make 15 stitches going down the next stitches, and 5 stitches in the 16th. Make 12 stitches going back up the other side of the stitches you just worked into. You will be working in the base 2 loops of those sc. Your 12 stitches should be just opposite the decending stitches.
Make 2 stitches on the PC, turn and skip 2 stitches, sc down 14 stitches,
[these stitches make the tip (seal the tip)] –not sure what this means. I take it to mean to slipstitch the turning stitch down onto your little stem.
5 stitches in the next stitch. Then continue to rotate around your area and go up the other side with 14 stitches, two stitches on the cord, turn
Go down 16 stitches, always skipping the first 2, making 5 stitches in the 17th, and go back up 13 stitches.
Turn with 2 stitches on the cord, skip 2, go down 15 stitches, 5 in the 16th, go back up 15 stitches.
Turn with 2 stitches on the cord, skip 2, go down 17 stitches, 5 st in 18th, go up 14 sts.
Turn with 2 stitches on the cord, skip 2, down 16, 5 in the 17th, up 18,
Turn with 2 stitches on the cord, skip 2, and go to the bottom of the leaf until the 21st stitch.
Make another stitch in the 21st, and hook at the same time the first of the remaining stitches on the tip of the cord under the leaf.
This leaf is the first on the bottom right, the other four leaves are made in the same way.
Stem: La Tige
After the leaf make 65 stitches on the cord, make the second leaf, go 6 stitches down on the stem.
40 stitches on the cord, make the top leaf, go down 8 stitches on the stem.
38 stitches on the cord, make the fourth leaf, 6 stitches on the stem of the leaf, then 20 more stitches along the main stem.
38 stitches on the cord, 5th leaf, go down 6 stitches for the leaf’s stem.
For the bottom of the stem: 30 stitches on the cord, turn and go back up those stitches, stopping when you meet the base of the first leaf stem
It is not necessary to always make the entire branch, you can make just 2 or 3 leaves as you wish.
