Backyard Leaves

Yarn: Aurora 8 by Karabella Col:276 - a muted light green.

I loved knitting this scarf so much the first time around, that I just had to do it again.

This time I opted for a shorter scarf using only 2 balls of Aurora 8 (14 pattern repeats and 41" in length) - perfect for winter in Sydney!

    Oh good! A leaf-knitting expert!

    I'm looking at the chart for this scarf tonight. Could you give me some pointers on getting started?

    IE., the set-up row: is that a wrong side row? And do I work that row from left to right? And then read row 1 from right to left?

    What is the best method of casting on extra stitches on row 3? Can't use long-tail there, or can I?

    S'been a while since I worked from a chart, except for the Diamond Fantasy shawl, which I think uses a different charting method (without the WS/RS reversal of symbols, which is going to fry my brain circuits until I adapt.)

    Thanks!

    Dicentra - the set-up row is a WS row and worked from L to R.
    Row 1 (RS) is from R to L.
    Row 3 extra sts-I wove the CO tail up the side of the work (with a tapestry ndle) and used it to CO.
    PS: The term 'leaf-knitting expert' made me laugh!

    Hello, I live in Sydney too! I've been trying to find Aurora 8 in local knitting stores for ages! Where did you get your yarn from?
