This is called Skinny Leaves not because the leaves are skinny - and it’s not designed for skinny people - it’s a skinny scarf that measures 4.5 inches (11.5cm) wide, and is 68.5 inches (174cm) long.

Knit with Araucania Botany Lace, which is actually a light fingering weight yarn, the scarf is lightweight but has some substance that makes it perfect for cool autumn days.

The yarn is a hand-dyed wine color (colorway 2118).

Two basic lace stitch patterns are involved, with some eyelet rows where the wooden beads are placed (3 beads), and a knit-on edging.

You’ll need some lace knitting experience for this, but it’s a good practice piece if you’d like to improve your lace knitting skills, knit-on editing skills, and bead placement skills!
