Free Chart~~~  Bright Leaves   ( Catherine Goodwin, 2000)

    This chart is a 24 stitch repeat used with the Magic Needle Selector wand knit across the front of a standard modified drop shoulder pullover (designed in KnitWare and it fits me great, thanks Janet!) It has a rib and roll neckline, roll hem on a cropped length, and plain bound-off sleeves. The border of the motif is repeated on the shoulder and the arm, to add a more cheerful look. 

It is knit simple and inexpensively for fall work-wear out of Aunt Lydia's Denim quick, in baby yellow, red and purple on KP 2 on the ISM (KP 2 gives a dense fabric, which I wanted to cut the chill from the wind, but it could be knit on 3 for a more sweater with more drape)  This yarn shrinks quiet a bit, so be sure and measure swatch after washing, but washes very soft and cuddly, with less pilling and sag than some other cottons.
