Tiny Lights Crochet Christmas Tree – Free Pattern

crochet christmas tree amigurumi pattern

Are you looking for a quick Christmas decoration project? This little crochet Christmas tree might be just what you are looking for! This tree will also make a lovely gift for your loved ones.  
Being a jew, I’m not celebrating Christmas, but I just all the beautiful Christmas decorations (how could you not?)!
So whenever I get the chance, I make a cute Christmas tree and gift it to my Christian friends.
This tree is my second tree design, the first one is the Bobbles Christmas Tree.
You can get both trees PDF patterns at a discounted price on Ravelry!

About the Tiny Lights Crochet Christmas Tree Design

I was first inspired to create this crochet Christmas tree design when a friend asked me to make her an ornament that can be put on a table or a shelf, instead of hanged on the tree.
This tree is worked from the bottom top, so you don’t have any sewing to do (except for the button at the top).
I recommend combining contrasting colors to enhance the tree decorations. I used a golden bead, but you can use whatever bead you’d like!


What yarn should you use for the Tiny Lights Crochet Christmas Tree?

I love to use mainly natural fibers for my projects and I think a yarn with a high precentage of cotton will be the best choice, although you can use whatever yarn suitable for you.
A great option of yarn for this project is the Comfy Fingering by KnitPicks,  this is a Fingering (#1) weight yarn, it is 75% pima cotton and 25% acrylic and is extremely soft and squishy with a wide range of color to choose from, and unlike other cotton yarn, this one isn’t splitting at all!

Notes

  • This crochet Christmas tree is worked from bottom up, in continuous rounds (no need to slip stitch at the end of the round).
  • 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.
