I stitched this pattern last year on a larger count fabric. This is a Shepherd’s Bush design.  I stitched it with DMC floss on 28 count fabric and finished it like a little pillow.

Christmas Tree Biscornu

The pattern for this biscornu was a freebie, available at the Floss Box. I printed several biscornu patterns from that site a year or so ago, but I can't find the free ones now.  I stitched it with cotton floss on 28 count evenweave, adding a ribbon to make a hanger.
