Tree of Life 16"/40cm square pillow cover

The classic shape of a tree lends itself so well to the incorporation of knit cables into a curving trunk and branches.

There are many knit tree designs available, but I wanted to create my own. After many hours of knitting, note scribbling, re-knitting and tweaking; many prototypes and design changes, this is the final result!

I used an aran/ivory worsted weight yarn for this 16" x 16" / 40cm x 40cm pillow cover.

It has a 3 button closure and is finished with a single crochet border.
The pattern is written row by row, not as a chart.

If you are familiar with using a cable needle and counting rows you should have no trouble with this pattern.
