    I just have to tell you the “tweeks” I did for this pattern.

    In the plain sc rounds I added red yarn and made an sc every so many sts to simulate ornaments.

    Then, I made a small star (Magic circle, ch 3, sc in 2nd ch, hdc in 3rd, sl st in ring & repeat 4 more times, sl st to base of ch 3) and attached it to the top.

    As soon as I get it stuffed I will post a pix onmy blog and add it to my Ravelry projects. I am making it for a cat-nip toy, so I will also add a bell and some catnip with the stuffing.

    I do believe this is the BEST tree pattern I have tried.

    I just found this little treasure tucked away in my inbox and can’t wait to get started on a batch of cute little trees for next year’s holidays. They’re going to look adorable on my Christmas tree and as package tie-ons for friends and family. Thanks! ๐Ÿ™‚
