O Tannenbaum!

O Tannenbaum was a teaching piece last year at the Shepherd's Bush Retreat.  It is now available for re-release!    

The pattern does explains the layout, but I would like to further explain to clear up any questions that you may have.  I am assuming you are using the called for,  9" x 26" cut of 36 count of  Legacy linen when I explain.  I can't stress enough to thoroughly read the instructions!  The best piece of instruction advise comes in step 1 -  it says,  
pretend you are stitching one piece and stitch as such.   In other words, cut and tape the 5 pages of the chart together, overlapping the gray areas. (see below photo of chart)   The stitched sections do not get cut apart until all 5 are stitched.   I recommend doing a center start.  Once you have the chart pages set side by side, it will be clear how they get stitched on the 9" x 26" cut of linen.   This layout is to best accommodate the cut of linen, with the least amount of waste.  It also allows you to work with a larger piece of linen, rather then small cuts that make our hands tired, or don't fit into our hoops, etc. ;)  NOTE -  You will see that 2 of the sections lay on the linen side ways (page 1 & page 3), that is correct!  Just turn both your linen and chart, so they read correctly, when you stitch those two sections.   
Hope this helps & enjoy!
