Sideways Leaf Cardigan is a fun cardigan worked sideways.
The leaf pattern is created by a combination of knit and purl stitches. I wanted to create a cardigan that could be easily altered. If you want it a bit bigger just knit a little more until the next section of the pat-tern. If you need it a bit smaller then change sections faster than listed in the pattern.
The leaf pattern is fairly easy and the only part that may be a challenge is working short rows. Once you give it a try they are almost addictive because they create such an interesting and effective look. Knit in dreamy Malabrigo colored in a beautiful teal, the sweater is sure to be a constant go to cardigan for the Fall and Winter season.
The cardigan is worked sideways. The number of stitches cast on will be the length of the cardigan.
