Colorful leaves in various sizes embellish a nubby-textured scarf worked in three earthy tones of Brooklyn Tweed Shelter. The leaves are knit in four colors of Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Tweed and arranged and sewn on to one side of the scarf using a simple, modified whip stitch. The back of the scarf is plain; pattern stitch is reversible.
