12.27.15 The pattern has been updated to reflect my current pattern layout format.

This is a wrap/stole version of my previously published pattern for a triangular shawl called “Once upon a leaf”. That pattern can be found here:

Instructions are charted only.

Pattern also has instructions for a beaded picot BO.

“Once upon a leaf” is an airy lace stole/wrap with beautiful winding leaves stitch pattern. Leaves evoke feelings of spring and summer, but this stole would make a great accessory for any time of the year. The stole is seamless and knitted from the provisional cast on to the edge in both directions. The edges are finished by picot bind off.

Finished Size:
The sample stole in the photographs after blocking was 54cm (21 inches) wide and 164cm (64 inches) long. You can easily make it bigger or smaller by adding or taking away pattern repeats. The stole design is modular and border pattern can be started after desired number of the body pattern repeats is knitted.

The gauge is not critical in knitting this shawl. Adjust your needle size to suit your yarn and achieve the size and the look of the shawl of your choice.
