Drooping Elm Leaf

This pattern represents an adaptation of the well-known Beech Leaf, in which the leaves arc staggered instead of being twinned. Note that in Rows 3 and 4 there is one stitch less for each pattern repeat, and in Row 5 the original number of stitches is restored.

Multiple of 15 sts plus 1.
