“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.

As beautiful as the picture looks, I pulled this out several times. The number of stitches do not stay the same from row to row. The increases and decreases must mean different things than the US ways. I'll look for a similar one that's written easier instead.

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.
