“Her limbs grew numb and heavy, her soft breasts were closed with delicate bark, her hair was leaves, her arms were branches, and her head became a tree top, everything gone except her grace, her shining,” wrote Ovid, describing Daphne as she turned into a laurel tree to escape from Apollo. These lace laurel leaves give comfort and warmth without turning you into a tree.

The pattern is beautiful bit there are too many flaws I see people having problems in row 2 but I don't find a problem in row 6 where it seems I lost a stich I continued working it an row 7 I have an extra stich I stopped at row 9 where I found I had two extra stichs it seems to me what will help this pattern is if you reduced and added to rows more evenly

I haven't even started knitting the pattern yet, but I have to agree with most of the other reviewers in saying that the font is ridiculously horrible to read, overcrowded and it is really dumb to have pattern information superimposed over the photograph!

First: Please don't put text over a photo in a PDF. The only way I can read it is to copy and paste it somewhere else. Second: I picked out this pattern to use up some extra Shine worsted. It's working out okay, I had to chart it to get it to make sense. Including a chart (since it is a fairly complicated repeat) would be very helpful.

I made this scarf using Capra yarn in the color Pesto. It was a beauty and received so many compliments. To make it easier to work, I first typed out the pattern using Miscrosoft Word in a larger font and printed out a few copies.

I loved the picture for this pattern, but the further I get into it the less my piece looks like the picture. There are large holes beside the leaves, and no detail within the leaves. Is there something wrong with the pattern?

At first, I seriously struggled with this pattern, but then I got into the groove and found no extra stitches. On row two, are you p2tog appropriately, seems basic, but that's one possible place where to pick up an extra stitch. The others are the inc 1 (are you getting out of the stitch when you knit from the back?), also, the yo's, you should only pick up an extra 2 there. Check out youtube for help with all of these!

I believe there is a mistake in this pattern. There are many comments on Ravelry about the 2nd row having an extra stitch. I counted, then actually knitted and still came up with an extra stitch on line 2? I don't know what we could all be doing wrong. Can you please help? Thank you. The pattern is so gorgeous I really would love to knit this but don't know enough to fix this.
