This stitch pattern creates such an elegant long leaf. You begin making a stem from 5 stitches. Then you build the first leaf, add a second leaf and at the same time decrease to complete the first leaf. I worked 7 leaves in total.

I used one skein of color 1037 Lettuce for the light color and one skein of color 859 Primavera for the dark color.

Errata: the finished measurements should read: 5” (13cm) wide x 67”(170cm)
