Autumn Leaf Cravat Knitting Pattern by Lavender Hill Knits
“Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the Autumn tree.” ~Emily Bronte~
Fall weather is perfect for a cravat, not quite cold enough for a thick scarf, yet cool enough to need a little something around your neck. With a pretty leaf at both ends, it is more like a piece of jewelry. Knit this up in any weight yarn you like, using a thicker yarn will give you a cozier scarf, using lighter weight yarn will give you more of a necklace look. The two shown were made with worsted weight and aran weight yarn, but any yarn could be used. It’s a great way to use up some left over yarn from other projects!

Knits up quickly and is a great take-along project to work on while watching the kids at soccer or baseball. Or when you are waiting at the doctors office or when traveling.
beginner/advanced beginner – requires basic knowledge of knitting
There are no charts to read and the stitch patterns are easy enough for a beginning knitter to work.
The scarf is completely reversible so it looks beautiful no matter how you decide to wear it!
YARN: 100-150 yards of any weight yarn – actual yardage depends on how long you make your scarf, the orange scarf shown was made with 100 yards of worsted weight Madeline Tosh Vintage yarn in “Spicewood”, the cream colored scarf was made with 150 yards of Aran weight Knit Picks City Tweed Aran in “snowshoe”, see below for finished measurements.
