Error in Leaf Chart updated in current download - as well as references to Leaf Chart (Version 1.2)

There was some confusion regarding stitch count - after you finish the back, and return to work the front, you will BO 3 (4,5,6) sts on either side of the front, as you did for the back. You will then have 54 (60,66,72) sts when you begin working the armhole decreases, same as for the back.

This sweater is constructed in the round from the bottom up with set-in sleeves knit separately in the round. A leaf motif is offset on the front.

Worked mostly in stockinette stitch, this is a straight-forward knit that would be easy to customize with your own design motif.

Pattern includes written instructions, chart, and schematics.

Not all sizes have been test-knit yet, so please notify me of any errors!
