A chill-chasing throw in two sizes, made bold by knitting chunky yarn into a big, leafy motif. The resulting effect is a riot of color and pattern fresh from the leaf pile. (worked in a pastel color scheme, it is transformed to a full bed of tulip shapes; in a medley of bright greens—maybe cotton?—it is like cool summer shade).
Shown here: wrap in Targhee Tango Worsted, color Nuevo and small throw in Briar Rose Abundance
