Crochet christmas tree pattern

 

Since I am in the last months of my pregnancy I decided not to do any garments for this period of time. Well, except one. Which I will reveal it in a later post, so stay tuned.

So, what to do? Home décor of course! And since Christmas is maybe my favorite holiday of the year and it’s right around the corner, I give you crochet Christmas trees!!!

Pin me for later… 😉

Yeah, that was meant to sound more magical, but you can ignore my silly attitude…

Let’s get back on point. I ‘ve been meaning to release this pattern since last year, but as always I was too late and the holidays had almost passed, so…

But this year I was more prepared and since it’s only November, you ‘ll have plenty of time to crochet these little Christmas trees just in time.

This is going to be a super easy crochet pattern that can be handled by every newbie crocheter out there.

Since we are on the Christmas topic, Lovecrochet has just released a crochet calculator for making Christmas gifts. You can check it out here and play around to see how much time you are going to need to crochet some of the Christmas themed patterns they have over there.

They also have a knitting version of it and you can find it here.

Let’s see what you are going to need for your crochet Christmas tree:

Aran weight yarn in green and off-white for the smaller trees
Super bulky yarn in green and off-white for the bigger tree
US 7/4.5 mm crochet hook and US K/6.5 mm crochet hook
Polyester fiberfill
Stitch marker
Scissors

Abbreviations

MR: Magic Ring
hdc: half double crochet
BLO: back loop only
tlo: third loop only
st(s): stitch(es)
hdc inc: half double crochet increase
sc: single crochet
dec: decrease

If you are unfamiliar with the third loop of the hdc or how to locate it you can visit this blog post here.

All of the trees are worked in a spiral, not joined rounds. Use a stitch marker to indicate the first stitch of every new round.

Both small trees have the same structure and the only difference is the “snow” which I will explain with a photo tutorial.

Small crochet Christmas tree pattern

With 4.5 mm crochet hook.

R1: MR, 6 hdc in ring. Do not join this or any round, you will continue in a spiral in BLO until R11 (6)

R2: * hdc, hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (9)

R3: * hdc in next 2 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (12)

R4: * hdc in next 3 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (15)

R5: * hdc in next 4 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (18)

R6: * hdc in next 5 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (21)

R7: * hdc in next 6 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (24)

R8: * hdc in next 7 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (27)

R9: * hdc in next 8 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (30)

R10: * hdc in next 9 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (33)

R11: * hdc in next 10 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (36)

R12: in tlo for this round, * hdc 7, dec * repeat from to * around (32)

R13: under both loops for the remaining rounds, * sc 6, dec * repeat from * to * around (28)

R14: * sc 5, dec * repeat from * to * around (24) This is a good time to start adding stuffing to your tree. Be careful to push the stuffing towards the top of the tree and leave bottom unstuffed. We want our tree to lay flat. Continue adding stuffing as appropriate until the last round.

R15: * sc 2, dec * repeat from * to * around (18)

R16: * sc 1, dec * repeat from * to * around (12)

Cut yarn and sew opening closed. Weave in your ends.

Adding some snow…

I have two different versions for the snow embellishments in these trees. One is like a garland that hugs the tree and the second is more heavily snowed. Choose the one you like or make them both. Both versions utilize the front loop that is left unworked and is forming a spiral around the trees.

Version 1

Free crochet pattern christmas tree

With 4.5 mm crochet hook and off-white yarn.  Connect yarn in the first stitch of the second row, chain 1, sc in the same stitch. You could begin at the first stitch of the tree if you like but I find single crochet a little bulky and wanted not to be so near the top. But, it’s up to you! Just remember to crochet a little loose. If you can’t achieve that, go up a hook size.

Continue making sc in the loop that is left unworked around.

When you reach right below the first stitch you made you will jump to next row.

Lean the tree towards you to locate the next round and place your hook in the stitch diagonally, not right below your last stitch.

This will create an even transfer and not a “step”. This is how it if going to look like.

Continue making sc around by skipping one round. Push sc with your fingers down because they tend to show their back side. You can continue until the end of the tree -not the bottom- or you can stop whenever you like. I used this version for my larger tree also and stopped before reaching the middle. Again, it’s up to you and you can play with the results as much as you like.

Version 2

Connect yarn in the first stitch of the first round and make a slip stitch.

Continue making slip stitches in all the unworked loops around.

This time we will not skip any stitches or rounds. Just keep working your way to the bottom of the tree.

This is how it’s going to look like after a few rounds.
