Green yarn for main color of tree- (I use a lot of Red Heart Saver yarn for these though you can use all medium to normal weight yarn)
Red yarn for ornament accents
Yellow or gold yarn for tree topper accent
“H” hook (5.00 mm)
Scissors or yarn cutter
Blunt large eye yarn / tapestry needle to weave in ends
Abbreviations used in our patterns:
ch – chain
sl st – slip stitch
sc – single crochet (US)
dc – double crochet
Main tree part using main color green yarn:
Note: Leave short length at top of tree (starting point) to help secure on tree topper.
Round 1: Chain 2. 2 sc into the 2nd ch from hook. Ch 1 and turn. (2 sc)
Round 2: 2 sc in both sc from previous row. Ch 1 and turn. (4 sc)
Round 3: 2 sc in first sc and 1 sc in each of remaining sc. Ch 1 and turn. (5 sc)
Round 4-8: Repeat process in round 3 increasing each row by 1 sc until you reached your desired length / size. (I finished with 8 rows which ended up with 10 sc across before last round) Ch 1 and turn. (10 sc)
Round 9 (or final row if you add additional rows to make Christmas tree ornament in a larger size): Sc in each sc across. (10 sc)
Pull yarn through and finish off.
If you like a more finished look to the ornament’s border like I did, before fastening off yarn, Ch 1 then sl st in each stitch all the way around the hat to give it a nice outline. Sl st in to first st. Fasten off.
Note: You can adjust the size and length easily. If you want a wider base for a much larger decoration, start of with 4 chains in round 1 and increase each round as instructions. If you just want a longer tree than in pattern, just continue to add rows like row 3, increasing 1 sc per row until desired length.
Tree topper with yellow / gold yarn:
I just wanted a simple ball on top of my tree but you can go fancy and make a mini star or an angel. I was also feeling a little bit lazy so I didn’t feel like weaving in more colors or getting too detailed.
In magic circle, ch 1 and make 4 sc into circle.
Pull yarn through and use extra length to tie on to top of hat and secure a simple loop for ornament to hang before finishing off piece.
(Note: If you like a heavier loop or more fancier looking loop, try making a simple loop of chain stitches. I did a loop of 22 ch stitches for this. You can also change yarn colors for this step if you want to have a contrasting color.)
*For ornament accents I just tied in some scrap yarn left over from previous Christmas ornaments with double knots to finish off piece.*
That’s it. It’s a pretty simple project for beginners and the ornament set make great little holiday gifts to go into baskets or stockings.
