April 2, 2013 : new version with some corrections.
Leaves is a crescent-shaped shawl and you can wear it in differents manners (shawl, wrap, scarf).
A circular needle with a cable of 32 inches (80 cm) will help you to knit comfortably.
I suggest a ssk technique but if you have another one to knit decreases, go for it. Often, the technique we choose depend of the yarn we have. Take time to knit a swatch for experimenting with your yarn.
Abbreviations and techniques:
- CO : cast-on
- st(s): stitch(es)
- k : knit
- p : purl
- k2tog : knit 2 sts together
- yo : yarn over
- ssk : slip slip knit
- s2kp : slip 2 sts together, k1, PSSO (pass the 2 sts slipped over the knitted st)
- BO : bind-off
Hope you will have fun to knit this pattern !
