You might also look for designs using Christmas trees, since those are usually conifers.

Best of luck in your search!
Yes, I could certainly do something as simple as this, but some of the patterns I'm using in this afghan (a vine and berry pattern, and an oakleaf and acorn pattern) have extremely sophisticated maneuvers built into them. I don't have any trouble following them, but I could never develop them myself.
