Scarf is knit from one end to the other, starting and ending with 7 stitches. To start, increases are made on the right side every fourth row. When scarf reaches maximum width it’s knit even for a while before the decreases begin. Stitches are then decreased to a small number on the opposite end. The entire scarf is worked in garter stitch except for the leaves. The fluid texture of garter stitch is enhanced when a ball of luxury fingering weight yarn is used.
