How cute! You don't see patterns like this very often, but this tree looks like it has a personality of its own, and I love that!

Now I have to make this up for a friend. I am always calling her a tree hugger. It's just too cute to pass by. I need to make one for my grandson too. I need to figure out how to crochet a tiny tree house into it for him too. Thanks for e pattern.
