Uniquely UK has a really cute and easy tutorial for a cabled tree that looks like it would be a good size for an ornament, gift tag or even to embellish the front of a pillow.
It’s actually a really easy project because it uses three triangles stacked together to form the tree. You could really use any stitch pattern you like for the triangles, and any colors, too, so break into your odd balls and have fun!
I actually kind of love the idea of knitting some of these as gift tags and somehow marking them so you know who they go to. So cute, and a little extra gift to boot.
