Triangular Scarf in Leaf Pattern
Pattern description from Knitted Lace of Estonia: “This scarf is adapted from one I purchased in Estonia that I reach for when I need just a little extra warmth around my shoulders, whether I want dressy or casual look. The main triangle is worked in a traditional allover leaf pattern and begins with a few stitches at the point, then increases steadily at the sides until it reaches the final width across the top edge. Stitches for the lace edging are picked up around all three sides of the triangle are worked in rounds outward to the scalloped points. The pattern for the edging is a ‘modern’ classic one, with plain knit rounds worked every other round to create a stockinette-stitch ground.”
