A decorative sweater with an eye-catching all-over leafy pattern that keeps you warm on the rainy days of spring, even if the yarn-overs make it a bit breezy. Choose another colour, and you can turn the sweater into “Autumn Leaves”:)

Spring Leaves is knitted in the round from the bottom up – if seaming is not your favourite activity, you will love this project.
