Miriam Felton Dropleaf Wrap PDF
If you are looking for a lovely scarf or wrap pattern then look no further than the Dropleaf Wrap from Miriam Felton. Designed for versatility this piece can be knit in ANY weight of yarn, in any quantity (size and yardage will vary). The main leafy motif in this piece makes a great scalloped edge and is deceptively easy to work. When worked with an alpaca blend yarn (as in the wrap version), it drapes and swings in an alluring way reminiscent of diagonal pleats.
Whether scarf or wrap, this piece is knitted from one cast on short edge along the full length of the piece. To get the most out of the yardage for the scarf, you can replace the border stitches with garter edge stitches (3 on each side) as is done with the Red/Brown version.
