Tannenbaum 2 Ornament/Applique
A charming, quick-to-knit Christmas tree applique that can be decorated as desired. Tannenbaum 2 uses approx. 22 yards of fingering weight yarn, and measures 5” at the base and 6.25” tall, after blocking.
Tannenbaum 2 features a lacey open-work pattern with a lovely scalloped bottom edge.
It’s fun to embellish the Tannenbaums: Try beads, sequins, embroidered French knots, mini light bulbs or jingle bells from a crafts store, or sparkly yarn or tinsel.
To use the tree as a hanging ornament, apply a light coat of fabric adhesive to the back of the applique; when dry, thread a loop of yarn through the top for hanging.
Tannenbaum appliques also are perfect for making greeting cards: Simply attach the finished piece to cardstock with adhesive dots or crafts glue. And if you’re sending a Tannenbaum card to a fellow knitter, make it extra special by attaching a fabulous stitch marker as a “tree topper.”
The pattern includes both written and charted instructions, and has been professionally tech edited.
