How to knit the alternating medium leaf stitch

For today's tutorial we have chosen an astonishingly light stitch that, together with the delicacy of our Fluffy yarn in mohair and silk, allow you to achieve an incredible level of softness. Try it for yourself. The stitch in question is called the alternating medium leaf stitch and it's the perfect stitch for knitting a mid-season sweater.
