Trimming the Tree

Product Description

This pattern is inspired by the designer's warm memories of Christmas, stringing popcorn for the tree and decorating with the family's ornaments.

The designer has provided two thread options; only one (1) set of thread is required to complete this pattern. The DMC conversion represents the threads the designer felt were the best match, but they will not provide the same results as the original hand-dyed threads shown on the cover sample.
