Garter Leaves is a crescent shaped shawl that is knit from the bottom edge to the top. Short rows are used in the center garter portion to give it a crescent shape.
The small shawl makes an elegant neckerchief or cowl. The medium shawl offers a little more coverage without being too ostentatious while the large shawl is a full blown knock out.
I love to wear the large shawl over a winter coat or sweater in the dead of winter. It makes quite a sumptuous scarf!

My mother was a big crafter. I cannot remember a moment when we were not creating something in the kitchen, in the sewing room or on the needles. I have continued that tradition with my own son. He thinks it is quite grand to do a "project' with mommy! And I think it is quite grand to have someone to do a "project" with.
