Summer Knitalong for Enchanted Vine beginning June 1st in the Busiest Bee Group - Come join us!

Skill Level: Intermediate; basic techniques, unusual execution
Techniques Employed: knitted cast-on, knitting, purling, yarn
overs, single decreases, 2 needle i-cord
Gauge: One leaf = 1¼” x ⅝” (3 cm x 1.5 cm); seven rows of
i-cord = ¾” (2 cm)
Finished size: as shown, 49 leaves & 57” (145 cm) long

Additional materials needed: safety pin-style stitch marker for use as a stitch holder, yarn needle to weave in ends

The short rows used are not like any you may be used to; this is a great way to get practice turning the work to make short rows without the frustration of getting them to look pretty (these will look nice regardless since they always end in a decrease). The necklace shown took roughly 85 yards.
