Winterleaf is a top-down lace crescent, with optional beading.
This is the first of 4 patterns from the Leaf Cycle collection.
It offers several variables to play with -
Start the lace when you like - right at the start for an allover leaf pattern
or after a plain section as large or small as you like, in stockinetter or garter.
The main leaf lace is indefinitely repeatable - keep going until you are ready to start the twig-like edging.
The edging is also repeatable, so you can knit until you run out of yarn, or skip the edging altogether and finish the leaves off with a simple picot edge.
Adaptable to any yardage of lace to fingering weight.
Written and fully charted.
Pattern rows are worked on the right side only.
Inspired by the last leaves that linger into winter, gradually revealing their delicate tracery. In the depths of winter, they remind us of the beauty of autumn and the promise of spring to come.
