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 :)

  13. Thank you so much for the pattern! This turned out really cute and ended up making it into a little dream catcher. I left off the last row and chained 2, skipped a stitch, then sc in next stitch all the way around. Then sl st to bottom of beginning ch. 2. Attached to a 7" metal ring with a 3 sc in each ch. 2 space all the way around the ring. Also, made a ch. 20 loop for the top of the pattern to hang as a dream catcher! Still debating on whether I will attach feathers or beads to hang at the bottom! :-}

  14. Awesome pattern, I am a beginner and still trying to get all the terms down and this pattern. Have you ever thought about a video tutorial? Or has someone made a video tutorial for this patter? I am a visual learner so being able to see someone do this would be very educational

  15. For example, Caffeine is a stimulant and may not be suitable for people with heart problems. Furthermore, high-sugar mary g detox products, such as cranberry juice, can cause diabetic patients' blood sugar levels to rise. And my point of view is pursuant to I recommend sell this one product, and I will clarify this notion. - gooodprgn. If you have a pre-existing medical condition, it is best to consult a doctor before beginning any detox program. You should also thoroughly research the product's ingredients to ensure you are not allergic to any of them. Cleansing your body off the THC metabolites using natural detox methods is a time-consuming process. Not everyone is given prior notice before a drug test. Therefore, they have to resort to the following alternative methods. Drug test kits can be purchased and kept at home to see if the mary g detox is effective before the actual test. It will help you determine if there are traces of THC left in your system.

    1. Maybe you should find your own website to post things you're interested in. This is for crochet. You're wasting our space.

  16. Thank you for sharing this pattern with me. Just finished my first one. Ann

  19. This is a wonderful pattern. The tree of life is the symbol of the senior community where I live, so it is extra special to me. Thanks so much!

  20. This makes up very quickly and is so pretty. I am doing 35 for a special event. They look perfect on a hoop, I left the bottom straight and filled in the gap with a pretty tassel. DK yarn with a 3.5mm hook fits nicely on a 5" hoop.
