Crocheted Christmas Tree


Here is a crocheted Christmas tree that I have finished. I got this pattern YEARS ago, when Annies Attic used to have personal ads in the back and you could buy or trade patterns with other readers. This tree is made with some green yarn with a gold thread woven through. I wish that showed up more in the photo! I found it difficult to find this yarn anymore, but holding a gold 6 strand metallic gold embroidery thread and crocheting together with the yarn would work also. The tree belongs on an 8" cone but all I had on hand was this 10" one for now. I am going to replace it. There are actually two patterns; one for the green and a little different for a white tree. I made several white ones as gifts about 10 years ago but of course did not take pictures! I have a container of miniature ornaments that I am going to go through and sew on to the "branches" of this tree. Will post again when I finish! :)

Your trees look awesome. I may have to look on the internet for a pattern for the crocheted one.

Your tree is lovely. I don't crochet anymore but years ago with the help of my Daughter, I did a little crochet and one of the things I did was a christmas wreath, similar to the way you did your tree. This a reminder for me to post a picture of it soon.

I remember that pattern! I made one and gave it as a gift a long time ago.
