Look at the beautifully overlapping leaves in this falling leaves stitch pattern.  The eyelets hint the modern “airy” knitting style. It gives a top the perfect finishing touch. It is rated as moderate difficult lace. You need to learn basic lace forming techniques. Decreases and yarn-over increases combine to create the wavy look. It would be a great finish on a stockinette stitch knitted top or shawl.

    This is actually a pattern of a 15 stitch repeat plus 2 as it is charted.
