Homespun Leaf Cowl
I used homespun, but you could use a super bulky yarn
Wear the cowl in what would appear to be "inside out" so that the leaf tips show. You can see from the close up that the lower edge is actually the leaves inside out
Something I would consider if I repeated this pattern. It is a fairly loose. You could probably only double the stitches instead of tripling them. You could make the leaves longer then, and it would come up higher on your neck. Just a suggestion.
If you want to get a hardcopy pattern without going through Ravelry, you can come to The Little Green House and see Kniterary and Hedgehog Stitchery in person to purchase a copy.
