Leaf Me Alone, I'm Knitting Cardi/Vest

I love autumn. It is my favorite time of year and I celebrate it often by designing another leaf item. I celebrated Autumn 2010 with Leaf Me Alone, I'm Knitting Cardi/Vest Yes, it has taken me that long to publish it.
You can buy it here
Though it has taken me 4 years to publish this design, I hope you think it is worth it and enjoy making it and wearing it as much as I have enjoyed designing it. 

This pattern has a unique construction. The Leaf Panel is knitted (14 sts wide) and then the stitches for the body are picked up along the end of rows on the Panel to form the lower body of the cardi/vest. The Yoke above the Leaf Panel is picked up along the other side and worked up. 
It has a 2 button chain loops closure and is meant to be worn slightly open across the Leaf Panel area.
I have used many different yarns to make this and love the way all of them look.

The gauge is 16 sts and 22 rows for 4” in Stockinette Stitch.

It comes in a great range of sizes, so choose a size that is closest to your bust measurement. 
X-Small    Small     Medium    Large     X-Large    XX-Large 
33 1/4”     36 1/4”  39 1/4”     42 1/4”  45 1/4”     48 1/4”

Thank you for supporting independent designers. We love keeping you in stitches!
