I did a tree in silhouette in the back of my’Honeymoon sweater’ It’s mid-page.
It’s supposed to be an arbutus in a sunset seascape.
I charted it orginally on graph paper but I found myself deviating from the chart as I knitting it up depending on how it was showing up . If I were to do it again, I’d only sketch out a pattern onto graph paper showing how the trunk and branches will move. I estimate that the bottom third is trunk. The rest is branches. The top quarter was leaves. Opt for few branches, it’ll make the job easier.
Another option is to type in ‘sihouette tree’ in Google images and find a simple tree image. Take that and put it through a Knitting Pattern Generator (there’s a couple online).
I’m planning a Tree of Gondor sweater for my DH based on the Seal of Gondor
