The candy cane and the name are supposed to be knitted in or duplicate stitched later. Duplicate is NOT working! I think I’m going to cross stitch both on.
Last night I knitted a a strip three stitches wide, alternating the green and white as the candy cane requires and I could sew that on. I also thought about making it out of felt and sewing it on. Either option still would not address the name issue. I like the idea that the candy cane and the name are made in the same way for continuity of the project.
There are supposed to be some felt holly leave on this somewhere but I don’t think I’m going to put those on. I could decorate the tree with French knots maybe.
