FO: Large Leaf Camo Cache


I've knitted something pretty close to this before:

On the right - the old; on the left - the new.

This was a replacement for the previous leaf which has been declared 'missing in action'. In case you're wondering, the leaf is designed to hung from a tree (hence the loop) and secretly hides a tiny container (which itself hides a tiny logbook). The coordinates for the leaf are listed on and periodically someone comes along, finds it, and signs the tiny log book.

If you look really carefully you can see the distortion down the centre of the leaf that's created by the container hidden on the reverse.

Pattern: Large Leaf by Lesley Stanfield
Yarn: Stylecraft Special Double Knit in Green
Mods: Lengthened the icord and added a pressstud fastener to the end. Replaces the YOs either side of the centre with M1s. Added a small pocket on the back by picking up stitches either side of the centre, knitting a few rows and then grafting them together.
