Foliata is inspired by the various spiral forms occasionally seen in certain types of plants. Whether you’re currently enjoying the beginnings of summer, as we are here now in the southern hemisphere, or gazing out the windows at bare branches and dreaming of spring, foliage is something to be savoured.

In this design, leaves gradually evolve from small, simple shapes to more elaborate forms as the pattern swirls outwards..

The construction uses a spiralling wedge shape which increases in gradually expanding leaves that radiate sideways out from the centre.
The stitches increase as the leaves widen, and also increase at the edges to form a generous crescent, or a half circle plus wings.

The pattern includes three sizes, with included optional light beading.

Suitable for lace to fingering weight yarn.

Can be worked entirely from the written pattern, or from charts with notes.
