"It's a String Thing" #174

It's Tuesday, your good news day!

Today marked the lighting of the U.S. Capital Christmas Tree in Washington, D.C., an eighty foot Engelmann spruce.

Our string this week is tree shaped, but not nearly that big!

These two patterns combined with the string may seem simple, but this is the kind of challenge that brings the most interesting and varied results.  Even though we begin with a trees shaped string, the patterns may take you in an unexpected direction.  Have fun!
