How to Knit Lace Leaves

Lace leaves stitch is one of my favorite stitches, it’s simple and elegant, great for spring and summer projects. There are two basic stitches used in this lace leaves that need special attention, they are: 1. yarn over after a knit and before a purl. 2. cdd, centered double decrease, which is slip 2, knit 1, pass 2 over.
