• Getting Started…

We will first start with making the tree. The tree starts at the very top and we work our way down to the bottom. At the very bottom I provide an option to crochet on a stump!
After this, we make 3 different “leaf strips”. These leaf strips will then be sewed onto the tree.
Finally, we make the star!

Let’s start making the Christmas tree, starting at the very top!

Christmas Tree:

In Green

Round 1: 6 Sc into a Magic Ring (6)
Round 2: *Inc* all around (12)
Round 3: *Sc* all around (12)
Round 4: *Inc, Sc* all around (18)
Round 5: In the BLO (Back Loop Only) *Sc* all around (18)
Round 6: In BOTH Lops, *Sc* all around (18)
Round 7: *Inc, Sc 2* all around (24)
Round 8-9: *Sc* all around (24)
Round 10: In the BLO, *Inc, Sc 3* all around (30)
Round 11-12: In BOTH Loops *Sc* all around (30)
Round 13: *Inc, Sc 4* all around (36)
Round 14: *Sc* all around (36)
Round 15: In the BLO *Sc* all around (36)
NOTE: We work in the BLO because later we will sew the leaves to the front loop left in those rounds.
Round 16: In BOTH Loops, *Inc, Sc 5* all around (42)
Round 17-18: *Sc* all around (42)
In the next round we will add 2 eye stitch markers. These will mark where to place the eyes later.
Round 19 eye markers will look like this

Round 19: Repeat *Inc, Sc 6* 2 times. Inc in the next st, Sc in the next st and add a different colored st marker to the Sc just made. This marks where to place the eye. Sc in the next 5 st. Sc in the next st and add a different colored st marker to the Sc just made. Sc again into that same stitch. Sc in the next 6 st. Repeat *Inc, Sc 6* 2 more times (48)
Round 20-21: *Sc* all around (48)
Round 22: In the BLO *Dec, Sc 6* all around (42)
Add eyes in the marked areas now

Round 23: In BOTH Loops *Dec, Sc 5* all around (36)
Add stuffing now. Be sure to add all of the needed stuffing, because we won’t add anymore after we put in the cardboard! We will now add cardboard.


Adding Cardboard:


Take a piece of cardboard (Pic 1). Place the body onto the cardboard as shown and outline around it (Pic 2). You will have a circle on your cardboard, go ahead and cut it around the outline (Pic 3-5). Now place it into the tree (Pic 6), you will have to fiddle around to get it completely in, just tuck it under the decrease round!

Round 24: *Dec, Sc 4* all around (30)
Round 25: *Dec, Sc 3* all around (24)
Round 26: *Dec, Sc 2* all around (18)
We have 2 options now! We can close off the tree and have it sit flat, or we can crochet a tree stump from here. Continue on with the pattern directly below for a flat tree. Scroll down for the “stump version” of the tree.
Round 27: *Dec, Sc* all around (12)
Round 28: *Dec* all around (6)
Finish off and sew closed.

Stump Version:

Round 27: Change to Brown. In the FLO *Sc* all around (18)
Round 28: In BOTH Loops, *Sc* all around (18)
Round 29: In the BLO *Dec, Sc* all around (12)
Stuff the stump firmly here. You can add cardboard for this to sit flat if preferred.
Round 30: In BOTH Loops, *Dec* all around (6)
Finish off and sew closed.

Leaves:

We will add “leaves’ to the tree. We create a different length “strip” for the bottom, middle, and top. We will then sew the strip on to the tree.

NOTE: Tension may affect how your leaves fit. the bottom leaves have 2 versions in case the first one comes out too long.

Bottom Leaves: (Makes 7 leaves)

Row 1: Ch 51. Dc in the 3rd Ch from the hook. Dc into the next ch. Trc 3 times in the next Ch. Dc in the next 2 st. SlSt in the next 2 st. Repeat *Dc in the next 2 st, Trc 3 times in the next st. Dc in the next 2 st, SlSt in the last 2 st* 6 times (63)
Row 2: Change to White. Ch 1 and turn. Sc in the next 63 st (63)

Star: (Make 2)

In Yellow

Round 1: 6 Sc into a Magic Ring (6)

We will add 2 eye stitch markers into the Round 1 we just made. Add 1 marker into the 3rd stitch made, and 1 stitch marker to the 6th stitch made. Don’t move these stitch markers. It will look like the pic below. (NOTE: Only add eye markers to 1 of the stars you make. The other star will be the back side.)

Round 2: *Inc* all around (12)

Round 3: SlSt into the next st. Hdc into the next st, Dc into that very same st, Hdc into that very same st. SlSt into the next st.

Repeat *SlSt into the next st. Hdc into the next st, Dc into that very same st, Hdc into that very same st* 2 times.

SlSt into the next st.

Repeat *SlSt into the next st. Hdc into the next st, Dc into that very same st, Hdc into that very same st* 2 times.

SlSt to very first st made in the Round to complete. (22)

Finish off, leaving a long tail for sewing on the first star made. Our star will look like Pic 2 after Round 3. Add safety eyes now (Pic 3). Make the second star and line it up to the front star. You can tell which sides align because the finished off tail yarn will roughly be in the same area (Pic 4). Sew the two sides together as shown (Pic 6-10).
