Foglie mimics the symmetrical veins running outward from the centre while the edge harkens to ragged leaf edges, nibbled on by insects and petit bobbles that imitate the damage done by gall makers. Its triangular shape make it perfect for wearing bandana-style around the neck or wrapped around your shoulders.

Foglie is worked from the top down, starting with a simple garter stitch tab. The repeating garter stitch and twisted rib is an easy stitch pattern to both knit and memorise for a truly enjoyable knitting experience.
