Crochet Pattern: Woodland Tree Applique

By Amy – 6 Comments
Nature is one of God’s beautiful gifts to His children, and those who know how to enjoy it are the happiest. I’m a sucker for beautiful scenery and love the chance to recreate it in an impressionistic style. The design was inspired by a lovely woodland throw given to me recently. This applique is worked in the round with a lovely technique called surface crochet for the branches. Add some leafy accents to finish it off. What will you do with your applique? I had a great time crocheting this and I hope you will too! Woodland Tree 1
