Leaves, I truly enjoy leaves. I love to knit them, I love to look at them and when I was younger I enjoyed discovering them. About the only thing I don't like about them is picking them up. Which I spend hours doing every fall and spring.
Rustling Leaves is a fun short sleeved cardi knitted in Knit Picks Comfy Sport. The color is Pomegranate and is a great Fall color and matches the leaves on my Beech Nut tree in my back yard. Rustling Leaves is perfect to bring under control the chill of the Fall morning and will work wonderfully at the office or on casual days. The lace frill on one side is a fun added touch that allows your knitted leaves to rustle in the wind.
The cardigan is worked in one piece with the sleeves worked separately and added in. The right hand side of the cardigan lace is knit with the entire piece. The left side of leaf lace is worked separately and sewn into place once the cardigan is completed.
