Minimalist Style Christmas Tree

Materials:

– YarnArt Jewel 50 g /380 m, Alize forever 50 g /280 m (various colours)

– 1,25mm crochet hook

– a pair of scissors, a sewing needle, hollow fiber stuffing, two 25cm (9.84") rulers, one 20cm (7.87") ruler

Abbreviations:

ch – chain

sc – single crochet                    

hdc – half double crochet               

inc – increase                                    

dec - decrease, two single crochets together              

 

Christmas tree contour stripes (3 pcs)

ch 22 in the Magic Ring

22 hdc in spirals. Make as many rounds as necessary to completely cover each ruler. I made 78 rounds for a 25cm ruler and 64 rounds for a 20cm ruler.

Insert each ruler into a respective strip. Close up the edges with a crochet hook.

Make a triangle and sew the corners together as shown.

Chain a 45cm (17.71")  long strip. Starting from 2nd ch from hook 14sc. Make a leaf: ch 10, starting from 2nd ch from hook 9sc. Continue crocheting along the main strip, 23sc. Make another leaf: ch 10, starting from 2nd ch from hook 9sc. Repeat the process as many times as required, you may want to leave gaps of various lengths between the leaves to make it look more realistic. See the picture for guidance.

Place the strip inside the triangle, attach it with the safety pins as shown and sew it on.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you!
