A charming, quick-to-knit tree ornament or applique that can be decorated as desired. Tannenbaum 6 uses approx. 20 yards of fingering weight yarn. The finished piece measures about 5” at the base and 5” tall, after blocking.
Tannenbaum 6 is a subtle design that features crossed and twisted stitches to form leaf-like shapes within the tree. This easy pattern knits up quickly and is equally pretty left unadorned or fully decorated.
It’s fun to embellish the Tannenbaums: Try beads, sequins, jingle bells, embroidered French knots, mini light bulbs from a crafts store, or sparkly yarn or tinsel.
To use the tree as a hanging ornament, apply a layer of fabric adhesive to the back of the finished piece. When dry, thread a loop of string or 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.
