So many leaves. I have to admit I went hog wild last year during a long awaited kitchen remodel. I started morphing the leaf pattern from Spiraling Leaves and this is one result. The other is Embarrassment of Leaves (I should count them all). This capelet is a good first or second lace project, fairly quick to knit up in soft and chunky Malabrigo Mecha (this color is Lavanda). Knit it in the round from the top down. Pattern includes beautiful charts and full color photos.

Sizes are small, medium and large with medium fitting most. Small is more like xs and large more like xl.

I aggressively blocked this capelet but if it wasn’t blocked it would be narrower and would have a three-dimensional quality. If you are interested in that effect which is more like Embarrassment of Leaves, then knit the capelet one size larger (which means adding one more pattern repeat to the round).
