Knitting pattern: Leaves Top

The Leaves Top is the perfect lazy summer knit: Knit it in the version you prefer and forget all about seaming! There are instructions to work the cute raglan top with or without the sash. And because it‘s worked bottom-up you can try it on as you knit and bind off on the round which forms the neckline that suits you best! But be warned: The simple all-over leaf lace pattern is addictive. So take it easy, trust the pattern and enjoy knitting!
