Little Christmas Tree

Christmas are approaching, and so is this wonderful, magical time. Everyone decorates their houses… Let me help you with some ornaments – if you like them, there is the pattern for colourful Christmas trees. You can download it in PDF as well :)

My pattern requires no sewing. Also you make only two pieces – the tree and the trunk. There is no joining rounds as well.

You’ll need:
* yarn (I’ve used YarnArt Jeans, one Christmas tree takes approximately 30 metres. My Christmas trees are 7cm high)
* colourful thread
* beads or other stuff to decorate them
* just a little bit of filling

Terms that I use:
ch – chain
st – stitch
sl-st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (UK double crochet)
dc – double crochet (UK treble)
dec – decrease over two stitches
FLO – front loops only
BLO – back loops only

To make the trunk, follow these instructions. Depending on the yarn you’re using, you may need to stuff it when crocheting.
1. make 6 scs in a magic ring
2. 2 scs in each st (12 sts)
3. work in BLO: sc in each st
4. dec, sc to the end (11 sts)
5. dec, sc to the end (10 sts)
6. sc in each st
7. dec, sc to the end (9 sts)
8. sc in each st
9. dec, sc to the end (8 sts)
10-14. sc in each st
stuff
15. dec around
Finish off, leaving long thread.

Now attach the end of thread to the trunk – it will form a big loop. Slip it through the centre of the magic ring from 1st round (to fix it there is a good idea) and enjoy your little tree :)

        I would really like to make this. I just started crocheting. Do you have a video tutorial for this?

        Thank you,
