A Yarn Christmas Tree

I found this wonderful Christmas tree at a tag sale last summer. It’s about nine inches tall, perfect to display on a shelf or table.¬†

I can’t exactly tell whether it’s knitted or crocheted, though I tend toward knitted. Up close you can see that the knobs look like a version of the popcorn stitch.

Here’s a view of the inside.

One of my friends saw it and at first assumed it was one of those ceramic Christmas trees that the New York Times says are enjoying a resurgence in popularity because of their nostalgia factor.

Today in the window of a shop in my town I saw another yarn Christmas tree, very obviously knitted. The knitter had created a scalloped effect that looked even more like one of these ceramic trees.
