This lovely leaf pattern is a modification of Barbara Walker's timeless 'Fern Lace' pattern. Additional details include a twisted rib brim and a twelve-point star raised decrease on the crown reminiscent of a dahlia in bloom.
Falling Leaves is suited to most any worsted weight yarn and makes a great one skein project, using approximately 175 yards (160 m) of yarn. A great way to keep warm and clear out your stash! Our sample was knit with Knit Picks Swish Worsted in the Allspice colorway. Swish Worsted is a lovely 100% Superwash merino wool - very soft on the skin.
This downloadable, PDF pattern includes both charted and written instructions. You do not need to know how to read charts to complete this project.
