Here’s another pattern I polished up for the Facebook Pin Loom Weaving Support Group September 2017 Square Swap. I originally worked on several, several, SEVERAL Christmas tree patterns in June 2016. I became SO SICK of them that I couldn’t bring myself to work on them again till a whole year-plus had passed; I even got tired of using green yarn—ME, I know!!!

Guess what? I finally decided that “Christmas Tree 1” looked the best. But hey, I tried just about everything (including several iterations of a tiered tree—you know, two triangles stacked on each other—didn’t look so good, but I may post some of them anyway because you might like them).

The diagram works just as well as the written instructions.

The diagram shows where to add beads (on L3 warps). Originally I only added seven beads. Later I tried adding 11. I like it both ways, but I think I prefer 7. I used a variety of yarn types and beads in the following samples. The second photo shows the back view of some of the trees. (I used 6/0 Rocaille, or seed, beads.)
