58 Leaves PDF
When I saw this fabulous leaf pattern I knew I had to do something with it. I originally thought it’d work in a lacy shawl or scarf, but in swatching it I found that it looks much better knit with thicker yarn. I remembered this fabulous brown yarn in my stash that was in sore need of a project, but didn’t have much in the yardage category. The stitch and yarn paired beautifully in this cuddly cowl.
-Laura Patterson, designer
Cowl is knit in the round, and benefits from both loose cast on and bind off rows. The pattern is written in three sizes: snug, cuddly, and super drapey. The snug size is designed to snug up close around your throat; the cuddly size drapes a bit in front, and can be pulled up over the back of your head when the wind blows; and the super drapey size will hang low in front, or pull securely over the head like a thick hood with enough left to keep your chest warm when winter winds threaten to invade.
