This is a very simple crochet christmas tree, there are lots around at this time of year, this is my version:
I am assuming you can crochet, so if you can crochet a simple double crochet stitch (sc in us terms) then you can make this little tree very easily……
I used a size no. 4 crochet hook and all my yarn was a dk weight.
This is great for using up scraps…
I have seen these polystyrene cones in hobbycraft and most of my local craft stores have them this year. They come in various sizes.The baubles are vintage.
Chain a ring and then simply double crochet into the ring and then into those stitches, always working in the round and increasing slightly by one or two stitches every couple of rounds, (to increase just crochet twice into one stitch. This of course will depend on your cone size.
Continue in rounds until you reach the bottom of the cone, stop increasing and check all fits well by trying it on the cone for size….,
if you are happy continue for a few more rounds without any increase so the ‘tree’ fits underneath the cone for a few rounds when put back on, fasten off and weave in any ends.
To make the garland:
Simply make a long chain and wrap it around your tree to measure the length for your desired drape.
Simply double crochet twice into each chain to end.
The garland twists by itself!
You can decorate however you wish by either sewing on your baubles permanently or just by pinning them, enabling a change for next year?
bestest as ever
Ps. The total cost of this little tree to me, was less than 5 pounds.
