Favorite pattern from my new book.

I have finally decided that this is my favorite pattern oit of my new book, Christmas In Crochet. I think I am starting on this one today, but instead of using size 10 crochet thread, I will use Sugar N Cream cotton to make it. I know it will be much bigger in the end, but hats the idea. The pattern given has it 7 3/4 inches tall, so mine should close to double it! Then I can stiffen it up with starch and use it for a tree topper instead of atable topper.
