This is the fourth pattern from the greenhouse knits e-book.

The e-book consists of 8 patterns: two different hats, a pair of socks, long fingerless mitts, a cardigan, a tunic, a shawl and/or scarf and a pattern for small individual leaves to use as decoration or for knitwear embellishments.

#4 is a cropped cardigan - but can be made longer - using the contiguous sleeve inset developed by Susie Myers. It is worked bottom up because those leaves look so much better knit bottom up. The cardigan has small pockets worked invisibly in the large hem. Leaves are growing out of the right pocket and at the back and sleeve. They are a bit different from the sample: the leaves at the back are placed closer to the center depending on the size. The long cuffs can be worn as is or folded back to line up with the length of the cardigan.
