Holly pattern
Any ideas where I can find a pattern for holly preferably without Crochet?

Just something like a couple of leaves and berries?

A friend at work is feeling a bit left out as he celebrates Yule rather than Christmas, so I was gonna knit him some holly rather than a Christmas card.

All I'm short of is the pattern and some green yarn - so I'm nearly there

One thing you could do if you don't find a specific pattern for a holly leaf is just felt a green square and cut the holly leaf shape out of that. You could even embroider some veins of the leaf on for some more detail.

I remember seeing something about felted beads that you could do for the berries. Just google "felted beads" and you'll come up with lots of options.

I did find this for a knit leaf too.
