Fern Leaf Border for Afghan or Jacket


Fernleafborder001

I have a notebook with many patterns that I want to try. I came across this one and decided to try it since I love leaf patterns. There was no picture with this pattern. I started to do the pattern and was going to change each leaf color but I did not see a leaf appearing as I knitted. So I stayed with the solid color. I don’t see it myself but it is a FERN leaf. I have ferns in my yard and they don’t look like this. lol

Maybe it looks different because I used the Bulky machine. This can be done on any machine.

If I thought it looked great it would be nice to finish an afghan off if the edges rolled. I see this kind of border for someone with a bond or very basic machine where you can only hand manipulate stitches. Or if you were knitting a scarf in stockinette stitch and wanted this on the edges to prevent rolling. It might look nice done on the standard gauge mahcines

If you want to try it and want the pattern go to this link. The leaf edge is knitted as you go attaching it to the afghan every other row.

I do not see an authors name or copyright on this pattern. It might have been in one of the seminar books I have.
