About This Stitch Pattern

There isn’t a stitch pattern that better captures the transition of summer’s kisses to old winter’s song.
With an inventive use of yarn overs and decreases, you’ll definitely need a few stitch markers to keep track.

But the result is a beautiful fabric that creates a trail of falling leaves in each column. Great for a scarf, sweater or afghan.

So be sure to knit this up in a nice wool to keep you nice and cozy as autumn brings those chilly nights.
