Individual leaves dance around the bottom edge of this triangle shawl turned poncho, moving from front to back, leading to one central leaf that grows from the center spine. The base of the shawl is a symmetrical triangle, knit from the top down, starting at the back of the neck with very few stitches, growing the triangle shape through rhythmic increases. Leaves are knitted on multi-directionally as a border along each side edge, incorporating shawl stitches as you go. Optional buttons turn this shawl into a poncho.

The pattern is designed for DK weight yarn but can be adapted to fingering, worsted weight, or bulky. One size fits all can be adjusted shorter or longer by decreasing/increasing the number of rows in the body of the triangle.

Supplies:
• 400 - 600 yards of DK yarn (Sample was created with 5 skeins of Knitpicks City Tweed DK)
• US size #8 circular knitting needle and one extra of the same size
• Optional: 3 buttons will turn your shawl into a poncho!

Both written instructions and charts are included for the multi-directional, scallop leaf border pattern.

Happy Knitting!
