“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.

I have tried to knit this pattern several times and the rows do not match up.

There are substantial mistakes. Even once I tried the suggested corrections, there are rows that do not match up. I'm an experienced knitter. I of course assumed it was me, and took everything out and re-reviewed the stitch abbreviations and such and slowly ever so slowly did each row carefully and still, the stitches do not match up. It /would/ be a beautiful pattern if the pattern were correct.

This is a fun pattern and tedious to work with. You have to pay careful attention to the Terms Defined section, especially with how the yarnovers are done. I was very confused with row 2 until I saw that this pattern yarnovers differently than how I'm accustomed to doing them. After getting that all cleared up, this was a breeze to knit!

I love this pattern! What's more, my daughter Daphne loves the scarf I made her! I used Knitpicks brand Stroll Glimmer fingering weight yarn. It is a perfect accessory for dressing up for a special occasion.

I just wish I had scrolled down to read the comments before starting this project. I have pulled this out three times and then started putting the number of stitches I should have at the end of each row. I had initially tried to copy and paste the pattern into a word doc. (because of the font used very hard to read) with the aim to increase the font. The pattern comes out with dashes and dots so even this was a hard job. I am not about to give up just yet but I do think that with all the comments someone should correct the pattern as to not get knitters on the wrong side.
