Nothing quite says the holidays like a Crochet Christmas Tree! Green, fragrant, full of lights, sparkle and memories that make me smile.
There’s something magical about a Christmas Tree that stirs up deep-down good feelings in my soul.
Each year it is a delight. There’s something wonderful about heading out to a Christmas tree farm, finding the perfect tree, and then bringing home that freshly scented beauty. It always seems to relax and grow a bit in the warmth of our home. And then it’s time to string the lights… always a debate in our house because I love the look of white lights nestled deep in between branches and the hubs loves colorful lights.
Then it’s time to bring down boxes and boxes of Christmas treasures! Some are destined for the tree and other things are displayed here and there. I love visiting my favorite ornaments each year and that wondrous moment when the lights are plugged in and everything glows with the Christmas spirit!
And what could be more fun than a delightful collection of Crochet Christmas Tree patterns?
How Do You Crochet A Christmas Tree?
A crochet tree is such a fun project! Most crochet Christmas trees use basic crochet stitches such as slip stitch (sl st), chain (ch), single crochet stitches (sc), half double crochet stitches (hdc), and double crochet stitches (dc). (Be sure to check out our crochet abbreviations if you see an unfamiliar stitch.) The gauge is not super important in the decor patterns, but make sure to use the correct mm crochet hook and yarn skein as indicated in the pattern instructions for best results.
Many of the patterns use a medium weight yarn and are worked in continuous rounds, so a stitch marker is a must! If you’d like a tree for your Christmas decor that stands on its own, a stuffed tree might be the perfect Christmas decoration! If you’re not into stuffing your tree, you can also look for patterns with foam cones so the tree shape stays a bit stiffer.
Also, keep in mind you may need some craft supplies such as decorative buttons and beads in addition to your crochet hook and a ball of yarn or two. Plus, a yarn needle for sewing in ends and fastening parts together. The recommended yarn weights will be included with each pattern, so make sure to keep an eye on that.
