Crocheting a small Christmas tree can be very easy. You can either make a crochet flat Christmas tree for a beginner pattern, or make a crochet Christmas tree using the Amigurumi technique as this small crochet Christmas tree pattern uses.

When crocheting an amigurumi Christmas tree, you work in continuous rounds, starting from the bottom up. Different patterns use different crochet stitches to add decorations or textures to the tree.

About the Tiny Garland Crochet Christmas Tree

This free crochet Christmas tree pattern is worked using the Amigurumi technique from the bottom up with no sewing.

The beautiful garlands are actually very simple to make, you can use any colors you like (even variegated yarn!).

To create the garlands around the tree, we are working Picot stitches in a row to create picot strings.

Pattern Notes

  • The tree is worked from bottom up, in continuous rounds (no need to slip stitch at the end of the round).
  • To make it easier to keep track of each round, you can place a stitch marker in the first stitch of the round.
  • The strings around the tree are made from picots worked one after another.
  • Each round after a picot strings round, is worked into two rounds below (back into the main color).
  • Work the picot a bit loose to get a nice puff.
  • Eco-friendly tip: mix your fiberfill with your yarn leftovers instead of throwing them away (or use just your leftovers)!
  • This pattern is part of the 24 Days of Quickies which is hosted by Marly Bird.

  • When changing colors: at the last stitch of the round, before changing color, start the stitch as normal, when you pull the yarn through the loop to finish the stitch, wrap the new color around the hook and pull through.

What Yarn Is Best For Making a Mini Crochet Christmas Tree?

When making crochet home decor, I like using cotton yarn because it’s more durable and will last longer. Cotton is sturdy and most important much more ecological.

For my Tiny Garland Christmas Tree pattern, I used Comfy Fingering yarn, it’s 75% Pima cotton and 25% acrylic. It’s sturdy but soft and nice to work with and comes in beautiful colors.
