Fallingleaf is the second design from the Leaf Cycle collection, a set of 4 crescent shaped shawls.

Inspired by the gorgeous flair of Autumn as she decks herself in her finest for a last hurrah before the bleak winter. It was designed with decadent silk in mind, but can easily adapt to a variety of yarn weights and fibres.

The pattern offers several variables to play with:

  • Start the lace when you like - as an all over pattern, or after an adjustable sized plain section in stockinette or garter.

  • Repeat the leaf pattern as many times as you like.

  • The edging is also indefinitely repeatable, and can be extended to make use of all that lovely yarn.

  • Optional beading.

Pattern rows are worked on the right side only.

Written and charted. Shawl can be worked exclusively from the written pattern.
