Leaf Wreath reminds me of those comforting Granny Squares with a modern leafy twist. I love to knit leaves. They are inspiring, entertaining and fun. Leaves are beautiful to look at and, since I live across from a park, are everywhere. Each time I begin a project, I try to find new ways to incorporate leaves and still maintain a natural feel. I look for new ways to knit them and interesting projects that can be converted into a lot of looks or garments.
Leaf Wreath is a fun project that can be knit long or short or even into a full throw or bedspread just like those fun crocheted squares. Each wreath contains 4 leaves that are knit by binding off and picking up in a new direction creating a small circle of leaves. Each circle is joined and then joined again to create a fun scarf that allows the wearer to easily slip one end through the other. The project is small enough to fit in your purse and easy enough to put to memory.
