Petites Feuilles ("little leaves" in French) is an irresistible unisex cardigan with a fun, unusual construction (but still straightforward!) and lovely details: leaf motifs, optional pockets, elbow "patches." ~~ The garter and leaf hem of this cardigan is worked first, then set aside. The top part of the cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top down. It is then attached to the garter and leaf hem using a 3-needle bind off. Stitches are picked up along side edges and neckline to work buttonbands and collar. The sleeves are worked in the round. Optional pockets can be worked. Their lining requires some seaming. The pattern is both fully written and charted, to accommodate personal preference. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY long-tail cast on, knitting, purling, increasing, decreasing, picking up stitches, yarn over, knitting in the round, three-needle bind off (explanations provided).
