Leaf pattern design
I've always been fascinated with the trailing leaf design, how it puffed out giving a 3-dimensional effect. The weight of yarn also determined whether the pattern would be slightly flatter in a double knitting or totally blown out in a bulky weight.
Examples shown above show just how versatile this stitch is and how different it can look.

There are many ways to incorporate leaf designs: vertical or horizontal panels, individually placed as embellishment, buttonband borders or borders of all kinds and centrally placed designs on garment fronts, backs, collars, pockets just to name a few.
