I didn't have to look far to find inspiration for this pattern. The autumn forest is full of beautiful leaves, in all shapes and colors possible. I think autumn is the season of the year when leaves are most remarkable - not only for the fabulous coloring - more for the fact that they are EVERYWHERE! Still in the trees, on the ground, in the air, on the car/the shoes/the dog..... In a month or two they will all be covered by snow - isn't it just fascinating?
I used the leaves-pattern to work matching gloves and a cowl - beautiful accesoires to match your autumn-outfit.
The Hoya Bella fingerless gloves are so elegant!
I loved working these gloves! They fall into the category REWARDING KNITTING. In a few words they are:
a really FAST KNIT, true EYE-CATCHERS, something to be REALLY PROUD of having made!
The Hoya Bella cowl is both Beautiful and versatile. It makes a gorgeous set together with the fingerless gloves - but could ofcourse be worn all by itself. The leave-pattern is that kind of pattern that look intricate. In fact it is a very rewarding and easy-to-memorize pattern. You could work it in the same wool as the gloves to make an elegant cowl - or choose thicker wool to change the expression of the cowl.
The cowl as well as the gloves are made in-the-round, with no wrong-side rounds.
You will find the patterns for the Hoya Bella gloves and cowl in my Ravelry Store. I give the pattern for free for a limited time; maybe until the first heavy snowfall here in southern Sweden, or until I have a new free pattern to present. Please enjoy!
