Crochet Christmas Tree - FREE PATTERN LINKS

Okay, so I am prepping for my first ever market, and I wanted to make some kind of festive home decor to go with my other accessories I'll have for sale. So I looked up on Pinterest to find some cute Christmas tree designs, and found a few free patterns for this Bobble Christmas Tree!

This is a free video I originally encountered. What a great tutorial to help you make the tree!



This video uses bobbles, and makes a separate bottom piece that you attach at the end.


Here you can find the link to a free pattern by the Simply Crochet Magazine in the UK. The pattern is written in UK terms, so if you are a US crocheter, like myself, then dc is a single crochet, and tr is a double crochet. This pattern also uses popcorn stitches instead of bobbles. Other than that, the pattern is very easy to follow... except that it is a hollow tree. So I did some modifications to extend the pattern to make a larger tree and close the bottom.

This is how mine turned out:

Don't you think they look lovely! Here are the instructions to make ones like mine!
