STITCH EXPLANATION
Picot
Ch 4, sl st in 4th ch from hook.

NOTES:
1. Leaves #1 and #2 are worked in continuous rnds; do not join and do not turn at beg of rnds. A marker is used to indicate the beg of rnd. Move marker up as each rnd is completed.
2. Leaf #3 is worked back and forth in rows.
3. Completed Leaves are lightly felted by hand.
4. Instructions are for a 40 in. long Runner. Materials are sufficient to make additional Leaves if desired to make a longer Runner.

LEAF #1 (make 2)
Notes:
Each segment is worked in continuous rnds.
Leaf Segment (make 3 for each Leaf #1)
With A, ch 2.
Rnd 1 (RS): Work 7 sc in 2nd ch from hook. Place marker in first st for beg of rnd; move marker up as each rnd is completed.
Rnd 2: Sc in next sc, 2 sc in next 6 sc – 13 sts at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 3: Work 2 sc in each sc around – 26 sts at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 4: Sc in each sc around.
Rnd 5: *Sc in next 2 sc, hdc in next 2 sc, dc in next 2 sc, 5 tr in next sc, dc in next 2 sc, hdc in next 2 sc, sc in next 2 sc; rep from * once more – 34 sts at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 6: *Sc in next 6 sts, hdc in next st, dc in next st, (2 tr, ch 4, picot, 2 tr) in next st for tip of Leaf, dc in next st, hdc in next st, sc in next 6 sts; rep from * once more – 40 sts and 2 picot at the end of this rnd.
Sl st in next st. Fasten off.
Arrange 2 segments with tips pointing in opposite directions. Sew segments tog at base for about 1 in. Sew 3rd segment between the first 2 segments.

Row 1: Sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 6 ch, sl st in base of Leaf.
Fasten off.

LEAF #2 (make 2)
With B, work same as Leaf #1 through Rnd 4 – 26 sts at the end of Rnd 3.
Rnd 5: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next sc; rep from * around – 39 sts at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 6: Sc in each sc around.
Rnd 7: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 2 sc; rep from * around – 52 sts at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 8: Sc in each sc around.
Rnd 9: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 3 sc; rep from * around – 65 sts at the end of this rnd.
Rnd 10: Sc in each sc around.
Rnd 11: *2 sc in next sc, sc in next 4 sc; rep from * around – 78 sts.
Rnd 12: Sc in next 29 sc, hdc in next 3 sc, dc in next 3 sc, tr in next 3 sc, 5 tr in next sc, tr in next 3 sc, dc in next 3 sc, hdc in next 3 sc, sc in last 30 sc – 82 sts. Rnd 13: Sc in next 20 sts, sk next st, 5 hdc in next st, sk next st, sl st in next st, sk next st, 6 dc in next st, sk next st, (sl st in next st, sk next 2 sts, 7 tr in next st, sk next 2 sts) twice, sl st in next st, (3 tr, picot, 3 tr) in next st, (sl st in next st, sk next 2 sts, 7 tr in next st, sk next 2 sts) twice, sl st in next st, sk next st, 6 dc in next st, sk next st, sl st in next st, sk next st, 5 hdc in next st, sk next st, sl st in next st, sc in last 20 sts, ch 8, sc in 2nd ch from hook and in next 6 ch, sl st in base of Leaf.
Fasten off.

FINISHING
Weave in ends.
Felting
Fill sink with hot water and small amount of liquid soap (hand or dish soap or even shampoo will work). Wearing rubber gloves, submerge Leaves in soapy water. Rub surface of knit fabric, working over entire surface until sts begin to lose their definition. Rinse gently to remove soap. Allow to dry.

With C, embroider straight st veins on Leaves. With sewing needle and thread, sew Leaves together as desired to make Runner.
