Here's a trio of lace leaf designs to delight anyone and everyone. I chose autumn colors in remembrance of the piles of leaves I loved to jump into. Maybe you and I don't jump into piles of leaves now, but undoubtedly you'll enjoy making a whole pile of these knitted leaves to play in! Included 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. The Aspen Leaf is the easiest of the designs and the Maple Leaf is the most involved, with the Oak Leaf obviously being somewhere in the middle. Working a leaf for the first time will take more time and attention. But once you see how it takes shape, you'll be able to fly through knitting more of them. It's quite addictive! BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, yarn over instructions are in written form only (this is almost a free-form of dimensional knitting which does not lend itself well to the confines of a 2-dimensional chart) to GAUGE Size is not critical, although to use approximately the stated amounts of yarn/thread, and get the completed sizes, you can aim for an equivalent gauge of approximately 8 stitches per inch over stockinette stitch. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Finished sizes range from 31/4" to 41/4" high excluding stem and 3" to 5" wide.
