HeartStrings Playing in the Leaves Knitting Pattern H02
Here's a trio of lace leaf designs to delight anyone and everyone. The designer chose autumn colors in memory of the piles of leaves she loved to jump into. Maybe we don't jump into piles of leaves now, but undoubtedly you'll enjoy making a whole pile of these knitted leaves to play in!
This pattern is the second installment of designs for shaped leaves in lace that began several years ago with the stunning Oak Leaf Medallion.
Included in this latest pattern are an Aspen Leaf in trellis lace with serrated edging, a 5-point increase Maple Leaf, and an Oak Leaf with an interesting lace edging construction built around the I-cord stem.
There is no sewing; finishing merely involves weaving in the tails from the start and completion of knitting, then a simple blocking.
Lace or light fingering weight yarn/thread: 10 yards for Aspen Leaf, 14 yards for Maple Leaf, 12 yards for Oak Oeaf. US 2 (2.75 mm) needles suggested. Finished sizes range from 3" to 4" high excluding stem and 3" to 5" wide. Written stitch instructions.
