Petal Leaf Collar and Cuffs
Leaf, Flame, Petal, is what this stitch evokes for me.
These are fast and lovely projects, a bit yarn intensive, but their sculptural effect is well worth it.
Jewelry meets warmth in this neck adornment.
Leaves cluster and frame your neck.
This pattern is adaptable and offers options
for reconfiguration as well as matching cuffs.
I created and tested this last year and spent the year sending the set to yarn companies and publishers. While it didn't seem to fit their requirements, it
still thrills me. So I've self published this on my Ravelry site.
