Maple leaf knitting pattern

Oh, Canada! Celebrate Canada day with this simple and beautiful maple leaf knitting pattern.  Done in traditional Canadian colors in simple stockinette stitch . Makes a great present to family or friends for Canada days holidays. It’s fun and easy to knit. Once you master the yarn color change, you’re good to go.

Maple leaf knitting pattern can be embedded in almost any piece of clothing or accessory. For example sweater, hat, mittens, scarf, etc. The pattern could be also a great motif for knitted home ware, like dishcloth or cushion.

Stockinette stitch has a tendency to curl at the edges. To prevent this you can add 4 more stitches to each side when casting on. Always knit the additional stitches in seed stitch or garter stitch.
