The Double Leaf Saroyan pattern actually came about when I was browsing through projects for Saroyan. I came across Teri’s beautiful version, and she kindly agreed to send me the pattern so I could incorporate it into the original pattern.
Double Leaf Saroyan is free! This pattern is quite a bit more basic than the original version of Saroyan does. If you’re looking for information on customizing your Double Leaf Saroyan, you will need to look at the original version of Saroyan. Information on custom sizing is not included in this pattern.
Double Leaf Saroyan contains charts only (no written instructions) and is meant to serve as a modification to the original pattern rather than a stand-alone pattern. You can download the original Saroyan pattern here.
The sample you see knit here contains set-up leaves, 12 increase chart repeats, 11 decrease chart repeats, and edge leaves. This pattern intentionally uses one less decrease chart repeat to compensate for the edge leaves.
The scarf shown used 2 skeins of Malabrigo Rios.
The edges are mirrored: the cast on edge is a leaf stem, the bind off edge ends with a leaf point.
