Tiny Tree - Pattern now available!

Hi, Knitters,
First I quickly want to thank you for the huge and fun response for the Tiny Top-Down Pullover Sweater and Cardigan pattern and the Waiting for Winter Mittens and Fingerless Mitts pattern last week. I am amazed and I appreciate it. The Waiting for Winter Mitt-Along starts this Wed., Dec. 5th and goes through Jan. 5th. You can join in anytime, there is no cut-off other than the ending date. Come and join us for this perfect winter knitalong.

I am excited to be back today with my second ornament pattern of the season called Tiny Tree. This quick, one-piece seamless project is worked from the top-down in the round. The red ornaments are French Knots done with one length of yarn placed on a yarn needle. 

The fabulous Kristin Nicholas has a great video tutorial on how to make French Knots if you need some help, click right here to see it!

The Tiny Tree is about 3 inches tall in length (the top of the tree is 2-inches and the trunk is 1-inch). It only takes a tiny amount of worsted weight yarn. The gauge is 5.5 sts per inch in stockinette stitch. I used US size 6 dpns to make mine.

I am thinking a stripey tree is up next on my needles..... a scrap buster!

This is the perfect little gift that you could easily work up in an hour or so! The price for the pattern is also tiny at $2.50.
