Knitted Christmas Tree
The finished tree can be used in a 1:12th scale scene or as a small table decoration in a human house. In order to accommodate everyone who wishes to join in, this is not a religious decoration, but does have a winter theme.
This will be definitely classed as an heirloom by anyone who makes it, as each set of branches and the tree skirt has a different lace border.
