I found this unfinished piece of work that is years old and the chart was not with it. I seem to remember it coming from a magazine although it's been so long I might be wrong.

Has anyone come across it online somewhere so I can get around to finishing it. Also, it's meant to be a cot or pram cover and I'd like to know what are the easiest ways of making it into one.
Many thanks!

Looks like just the tree needs finishing - I don't think you'd need a chart for that, just keep the edges rounded - like the bush.

Not sure how you'd make it into a cover - depends how big it is in the first place. Crochet a border or something or cut it out and sew it onto another fabric as an applique, maybe?
