Leaf pattern

Here is the leaf pattern that Bev asked for. It features on the SWS as seen here

Cast on 3 sts

Row 2 and all even rows: Purl
Row 3: k2, yo, k1, yo, k2 7 sts
Row 5: k3, yo, k1, yo, k3 9 sts

Row 11: skpo, k9, k2tog 11 sts
Row 13: skpo, k7, k2tog 9 sts
Row 15: skpo, k5, k2tog 7 sts
Row 17: skpo, k3, k2tog 5 sts
Row 19: skpo, k1, k2tog 3 sts
Row 21: sl 2 sts tog knitwise, k1, pso 1 st

Cut yarn and pull through remaining st.

I left the tails long for sewing onto the shawl and varied the size of the leaves as I fancied. For a smaller leaf, omit rows 9 - 12. For larger leaves, just keep increasing. I also experimented with a garter stitch based leaf and varied the cast on and first row.


I'll be off for a few weeks so see you when I get back.
