Free Crochet Pattern Christmas Tree

Free Crochet Pattern Christmas Tree

The last few weeks, I have been working hard on designing this Christmas Tree. Designing often means a lot of testing, frogging, starting over again and you are now looking at the end result of that process. I am so happy to share this pattern with you. I hope you will love the Christmas Tree as much as I do. You can use this Christmas Tree for different purposes, for example a garland with Christmas trees, a Christmas tree ornament, or use it as a decoration for a Christmas present. It will fit perfectly on a Christmas card as well.

If you crochet the Christmas Tree with Sport Weight yarn and a 2.5 mm crochet hook, the tree will be approximately 10 cm high. If you choose lace weight yarn and a 1.5 mm crochet hook, the tree will be approximately 7.5 mm high. You can choose 2 different colors (see image above), but it is also nice in just one color (see image below).

To get the best result, I advise you to block the Christmas Tree.
