Cascading Leaves Stitch is a simple knitting pattern that features a column of cascading leaves, as the name suggests. The pattern appears like it is a mix of cable and lace knitting, but there are no cable stitches in this pattern.
You can make repeats of the pattern in your project or make a single panel accent of the Cascading Leaves Stitch to highlight it in the project. This lace panel knitting pattern will be ideal for knitting projects such as socks or featuring prominently on the sleeves of a cardigan or a pullover.
