I have included directions for an adult length scarf and a child's length as well. Please let me know if I have made errors so I can correct them. I made it so that the leaves fall correctly on both sides when worn around the neck, but you could knit it all one lenth and reverse the end section if you wanted to. I used Caron Simply Soft Brights and got a length of just under 4 feet with the child number of repeats, but any worsted weight yarn should work. You could also use smaller yarn, needles and add more repeats to suit your fancy. Hope you enjoy it.
