Oh Xmas Tree

Have you already seen Ana‘s new pattern? It is a special gift to show her gratitude for all the love and support that has been given to her and her designs during this year. The pattern is available for free in her Ravelry shop.

The panel in Overlay Mosaic fits beautifully with the Wintry Forest pattern. Using DK yarn it will be about 40 x 40 cm. You can either sew it onto a cushion cover, like Ana did, make a wall hanging out of it, a placemat or whatever else comes to your mind.
It works up quickly and is great to use up some leftover yarns.

I made my test version with Cabaret from Stylecraft yarns combined with Stylecraft Special DK in Cream. The Cabaret is from my extensive single-ball-of-yarn-collection. I ordered it years ago to check quality and colour but never found a project to use it. Forest Glade – discontinued meanwhile – has a silver metal thread running with it and the colour changes in different green shades. Unfortunately, you can’t really see the glitter in the photos.

I’m not sure yet what I’m going to do with my panel. I was thinking of sewing it onto a fabric bag. Let’s see if I can find something suitable.

The picture above shows Ana’s work – photo credit goes to her and below you can see my test version.

Have fun!
