Christmas tree motif

Author

Jessica Felton

Introduction

This is a simple motif that you can use to decorate cards, turn into ornaments or even make a load and turn them into a garland!

Materials List

Small amount of green wool

Suitable sized crochet hook

Finished Size

My little trees are only about 2 inches tall – but this will vary depending on what wool and sized crochet hook that you use.

Gauge

Keep it nice and tight! These trees look best when they are slightly stiff.

Notes

I designed this very simple Christmas tree after spending a long time trying to find a suitable free pattern online and having no joy. They are very quick and easy to make – and can make lovely tree decorations if you back them with felt and add a few sparkley sequins.
