Leaf Lace Stitch!

leaflacesmallAs if you don’t have enough leaves around, here’s another one for you. But, this one doesn’t have to be raked up, or shredded, or mowed. This one is knitted. Bet you’re surprised, eh? A knitted leaf on a knitting blog? Courtesy of the folks from Lion Brand Yarn!

Note: this is a generic pattern for creating this stitch pattern. This pattern uses a multiple of 17 stitches, decreasing to 15 stitches in rows 2-7. In the example shown, there are two vertical repeats.
