Tree of Life -free crochet pattern-


I am currently writing a book, and it includes the Tree of Life. So this is a tiny part of the big picture.  I found it so fun to make (and easy!) that I want to share it with you today.  There are several things you could do with this, for example: you can make it the center of a mandala, turn it into a square and work it into any garment, or even crochet it over a hoop to make earrings etc. There's no limits to which yarn and hook you can use, it will just make it larger or smaller. I am very strict on the copyright for this pattern as it's part of a book, please read the copyright :)
