21. Oak Leaf

"Oak Leaf" has a row of ladder eyelets along the upper edge and pairs of eyelets cascading down into the curved saw-tooth lower edge. The garter stitch edging begins with 10 stitches cast on, increases by 2 stitches every right side row, and the added stitches are bound off in the final row of the 12-row repeat.

You can download the full-size chart, verbal instructions and notes here.

Addendum to 8. Wristlets: A reader has suggested wearing the wristlets with the scalloped edge at the hand, where it would catch the eye. I have added a new photograph to the post to illustrate this excellent idea. (Thanks, Jane!)
