I call it "The Livi Leaf"....

Livi: because that's my baby's name (well, her name is Olivia, but I call her Livi)
Leaf: because that's what it looks like.

I did this one in Lizbeth size 20 Seagreen (dk I think).

Here's the pattern:  

Do you think method of diagram is easy to understand?  I distorted it a little, but only because I thought it might be easier to read the numbers that way. I know I can't hardly understand written out patterns, but I love diagrams, and I have a drawing program, but it would be a hassle at this time and place to get to (hook up my other computer, blah, blah, blah...)

Anyway, tell me if you try it. Especially if you like it, but even if you don't I would love suggestions!

update:*** I've just noticed that distorted it looks a lot like the maple leaf pattern.  So, I felt the need to add that I was inspired by the Maple Leaf that Tammy Rodgers diagrammed, but I was trying to go for something a little more narrow... so that I can put two of them together maybe coupled with red beads... like mistletoe maybe??****


  1. Very pretty! How nice that you've named a leaf after your daughter. : )

  2. Well, you know, every time I tat anything she comes to me sweetly with her batted eyelashes and ask if what I'm doing is for her. Of course I always ask "Well, baby, would you like it be for you?" She always says yes and and I always say that of course it can be for her :o) So, it's only appropriate :o)

  3. Looks like a great leaf! And great color too! :)
