The first half of this leaf scarf begins with a Provisional Cast-on. If you are unfamiliar with the Provisional Cast-on technique then head over to the CEY blog for a tutorial.
After working a 2 x 2 rib, stitches are decreased before the leaf pattern begins. To shape the leaf, YO increases and slanting decreases are worked into the ribbing.
To work the second half of the scarf, the Provisional CO is unraveled and those stitches are worked identically to the first half. The only difference between the two halves of the scarf is one big buttonhole at the base of one leaf. Personalize the scarf with a big button or just pull the other end of the scarf through the buttonhole.
These little scarves work up so quickly! You can easily finish one while watching a movie. The quickness of this project makes it instantly gratifying while the leaf shaping keeps it interesting. Enjoy!
