Inspired by a simple leaf motif and the loveliest green yarn in my stash, I played around with shawl shaping and pattern-mixing, and after a few fits and starts, came up with this pattern. In either fingering or sport, the long arms allow for many different wrapping styles, and construction gives the piece a soft curve in back.
