After purchasing a pattern that didn’t turn out quite like I had pictured, I decided that I would attempt to create my vision. I have to say that it was a bit challenging, but I ended up LOVING my finished product! Now I am just a little sad that I live in Arizona and it is 100° outside! My ears will not need warming for quite a while! This is a quick knit and would make a great gift to friends! Some of the stitches I might have just fabricated so if you have any questions leave a comment and I will do my best to explain. *When you k1 and p1 in the same st just make sure you transition your yarn to the correct position for the appropriate stitch. I watched a youtube video for the raspberry stitch to help me figure it out! Here is a link to the full leaf pattern Happy knitting!
