A Leaf Unfurled by Ellen M. Silva

The pattern in this issue is from Laurie Chochinov, a Master Knitter since 2012. Her English Diamond Cowl uses a gradient yarn from Apple Tree Knits. As one would expect from a Master Knitter, her pattern gives the knitter a chance to practice many hand knitting skills, including provisional cast on, slip stitches, variation in gauge, and finishing techniques.
