This scarf is worked widthwise, using the intarsia method to change color. When switching to a new color, bring the old color up and around the new color, preventing any holes from forming in the piece. Use a separate ball of color for each of the 5 Leaf Link panels.
The Leaf Link Patterns contain reverse stockinette columns on either side of the leaf motifs. On the final row before binding off, the stitch at the top of each column is dropped off the needle and allowed to unravel to the cast-on edge. When casting on stitches over these dropped columns, use the backward loop method.
Leaf Link Scarf is available as part of e-book Classic Shades Book 5: The Plaza Collection, and as an individual pattern through Ravelry.
