Crochet Christmas Trees



I saw a new trio of trees in a for-sale knitting pattern on Ravelry. I dug them! And then I thought I can do that in crochet!

I stayed up last night til this morning and finished them


The one on the left is an original pattern. The one in the middle is a free pattern online.

The one on the right is improvised.

I've written the tree pattern. Will strive to make another one tonight to test it.
So many of the list pages are malware or fronts for selling, so I hope you'll enjoy seeing what I found as I searched around.

On Michael's
http://www.michaels.com/art/online/projectsheet?pid=h00062 this reads familiar, but the base is looped before branches are added-- i think I'll try this one when i finish with my giftmaking.

She makes the bottom separate-- i prefer to never sew and so for my little tree on right, backstitch decreases gave me a flat bottom.

Hi Danielle,
What do you mean by small? If you mean in comparision to life size--- yes. They are all under 18".

To perceive Christmas through its wrappings becomes more difficult with every year. nice post and thanks for sharing...

I've just begun making trees for this upcoming holiday.
