Christmas Tree Garland Pattern

Hello, all!  I hope you're staying safe wherever you are.  In my part of the world we're still dealing with a rising second wave of Covid cases, so I'm finding myself with a lot of free time (and yarn).  

The temperatures here in Canada are starting to drop, and the local stores have been full of Christmas decorations since before Halloween.  I've been seeing so many adorable Christmas and winter themed garlands, so I wanted to try making my own!

The trees can be sewn onto a garland, or left separate as a cute gift tag or tree ornament.  

If you have a go at making this and use instagram, tag me @loop.tee.loops

I love seeing what people make with my patterns!  Also follow me to hear first about new patterns.  

You can also get email updates, sign up for that in the bar on the right under "Follow me by Email"

To make these you'll need:

  • Green Yarn (I used Scheepjes Catona in colour numbers 412, 515, and 244)
  • Dark brown yarn (same weight as the green yarn)
  • Beige yarn (or any colour you want for the garland chain)
  • A crochet hook to match your weight of yarn.  I used a 2.75mm hook.  If you use a thicker yarn, you might want a larger size
  • A tapestry needle for weaving in your ends
  • Green felt
  • Hot glue gun

  • Small led lights (optional)
  • Gold thread (optional)

  • SC = single crochet
  • BLO = back loop only
  • INC = increase
  • CH = chain
  • FO = fasten off

The Pattern 

These patterns take time to design and write out. If you enjoyed using my pattern, please consider supporting me by paying what you can for the pattern by using the "buy me a coffee" button to the right. 

Using either plain yarn, or yarn with gold thread held together

**At the start of each row (starting on Row 1), I began with a CH 1.  This helps transition you into the next row and shapes the tree a bit.  You can choose not to do this, but it won't look just like mine.  

Set up: CH 2, in 2nd CH from the hook SC 3 (3 stitches in row)
Row 1: SC, INC, SC (4 stitches in row)
Row 2: In BLO, SC across (4 stitches)
Row 3: SC, INC 2, SC  (6 stitches)
Row 4: In BLO, SC across
Row 5: SC 2, INC 2, SC 2 (8 stitches)
Row 6: In BLO, SC across
Row 7: SC 3, INC 2, SC 3 (10 stitches)
Row 8: In BLO, SC across
Row 9: SC 4, INC 2, SC 4 (12 stitches)
Row 10: In BLO, SC across
Row 11: SC 5, INC 2, SC 5 (14 stitches)
Row 12: In BLO, SC across
Row 13: SC 6, INC 2, SC 6 (16 stitches)
Row 14: In BLO, SC across
Row 15: SC 7, INC 2, SC 7 (18 stitches)
Row 16: In BLO, SC across
Row 17: SC across

To add the trunk, count across 7 stitches from row 17, and attach brown yarn, crocheting 4 SC.  Turn, and crochet four more SC, FO

Weave in all ends but the thread at the top of the tree (you'll use this to sew it to your CH)

Make a crochet CH the length that you want your garland to be. I added a gold thread into mine, but you can also just use plain yarn.

Attach the trees using that leftover thread.  I spaced mine 5 inches apart. 

I found that my trees were curling at this point, so I cut out felt triangles slightly smaller than the trees and glued them to the backs. 

Let me know if you have any questions in the comments, or feel free to get in contact with me using the contact form to the right.

Happy crocheting!
