Needle Size: Size 7 for dk weight yarn, or size 8 for worsted weight yarn,
Gauge: Each leaf is 2″ wide x 2-1/2″ long
Note: Leaves are added and during first decrease, unraveling begins between leaves to create mesh appearance.
Inc1: Knit into the front and back of the same stitch (kfb), an increase of 1 stitch
Ssk: Slip 2 sts, and knit 2 together through the back loop, a decrease of 1 stitch
K2tog: Knit 2 sts as though they were 1 stitch, a decrease of 1 stitch
L: Make a left-leaning increase, by inserting the left needle into the strand between the stitches from front to back, and knitting into the back of the strand.
R: Make a right-leaning increase, by inserting the left needle into the strand between the stitches from back to front, and knitting into the front of the strand.
Knitted Cast On: knit into the first st on the needle, but leave it on the needle. With the right hand needle put the stitch back on the left hand needle. Repeat the process and continue until all the required sts have been added.
