Leaves are sneaky
Published On: November 13, 2017

Leaf patterns are sneaky.  Usually (not always of course, knitting offers very few cases of always) leaf patterns have you closing off the last leaf at the same time you’re starting up the next one.  That means when you’ve knit one repeat, you have two half leaves…and absolutely zero whole leaves.  It also means it looks like nothing much to write home about…

It’s not until you finish the second repeat of the stitch pattern that you actually have one whole leaf.

And it’s often not until you’ve done two or three more repeats that you can really start to see what’s going on.

All of which is a long way to say, don’t worry if your leaf pattern looks a bit indistinct at first…give it a a few repeats before you expect it to really shine! But you totally did a few repeats on your swatch, right?  So you weren’t worried…
