After restarting several times, I am finally about half finished with the tree; exciting but somewhat challenging project for a fairly new knitter!! I am eager to complete the tree, but now am having difficulty in finding a 15" Styrofoam cone (24" circumference) for the base of the tree. Do you have suggestion as to where I could order one that specific size? It is beneficial to read the comments from others working on the project. Thanks!

Annie's Customer Service
Elaine - We don't have a source for a 15 x 24" styrofoam cone, but you can find a 15 x 5" at If you use that size cone, you can fill out the tree shape using scrunched up tissue paper or other paper.

I love the tree! I am pretty sure I am doing the pattern right but my question is. The scales will not lay flat. They roll up and I want them to look like the picture. Help, what am I doing wrong? Should the tree be blocked before I sew it together. Any suggestions would be most helpful. Sure would love to finish it by the end of next week.

Annie's Customer Service
Rose - I have a few suggestions / helpful hints for you.
1. If you are using a different yarn then the pattern calls for, it may lay differently.
2. If you bind off each scale too tightly, it will curl up on you more. You might try using a needle one size larger for the bind off stitches just to help keep it loose.
3. The pattern doesn't call for blocking the finished piece. However, you could block before seaming to help smooth everything out a bit more.

Help, love this pattern and after a few false starts am doing quite well. However in row 5-7 it says to knit rows 1-3. Have done this a few times but the scales don't seem to lay in the gap of the scales below. They seem to lay on top of the scales of the first set. Do I start row 5 from where the asterisk is on row 1 or just knit as it states. Hope this makes sense, Thanks in advance. Jayne

Annie's Customer Service
Jayne - You should repeat it exactly the way the rows 1-3 were knitted before. The way it works is that the scales eventually will be spread out. The look will be that they not are on top of each other, but in reality they are not exactly in-between each other either. They will be, sometimes, a bit more on top and sometimes, a bit less on top. Since you are dec on the WS rows, they will not end up in the same position even if you work the row 1 exactly the same way each time.
