Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 400 – Mohawk Wool Leaf Scarf

Leaf motifs have always been popular with knitters. This week's pattern has interlocking leaves, on both sides of the fabric – when stitches are increased at the widest part of one row of leaves, they are simultaneously decreased to form the tip of the leaves on the reverse side, for a completely reversible scarf.

Looking for more patterns with leaf motifs? Check out CEY pattern book 1409 Autumn Leaf.
