See that little ridge around the medium green at the top? Pick up and crochet 6 stitches, this is the start of a leaf. Make each leaf 6 stitches wide and 11 rows long. Repeat till you have 3 leaves.
Cut 8 or so short lengths of yarn. Tie a knot at the end of each piece of yarn, using yarn needle thread each piece of yarn into the bottom of the leek. Unravel each piece for a more rooty look.
