Happy New Year
And with the New Year a New Project: Linde
More pics here
Linde features large heart shaped leaves with a pronounced stem and vein like lime tree leaves, hence the name I gave it.
It is worked top down, in the round with a circular yoke. I worked the increases invisibly in and around the leaves. The body is in garter stitch. At the waist 2 stems emerge that form the I-cord buttonholes and the stem of the pocket leaves.
I knitted the pocket lining, hem and cuffs in a contrasting color.
