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.

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)

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


The Pattern 

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

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
FO



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.

  1. Hi! Thanks so much for this pattern firstly, I’m planning on making a bunch of them. :)

    When changing from setup to row 1 and then after every row for the rest of the tree, do I CH 1 between rows? Or how do I just go to the next row without a kind of transition CH1?

    Thank you!
