My Storybook Christmas Tree

imageThis pattern makes beautiful gift tags, bunting, tree decorations or book marks. I made my tree in MoYa 100 % cotton DK yarn from my stash with a 3 mm hook. This pattern is written in between my holiday obligations on request of whole lot of facebookers. So if there is a written mistake please bear with me as I am using holiday time and have limited testing opportunities. Hopefully everything is in order.
