Christmas Tree Wall Hanging Knitting

Do you feel it in the air? Yeah, it's the smell of Christmas. I'm waiting it so much, and you?

And what about starting to decorate your house to feel the mood?

I offer you to knit Cristmas Tree for the wall, let's start!

What you need:
Susan Bates® Crochet Hooks: 4.25 mm [US G-6] and 6 mm [US J-10]
Yarn needle, stitch marker, 24 red ½” (12 mm) buttons, 30” wooded rod, 36” (94cm) of rick rack
Wall Hanging measures 24” wide x 30” long (61 x 76 cm).
Special Stitches
fan = 6 tr in indicated stitch.
sc2tog = [Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] twice, yarn over and draw through all 3 loops on hook. sc5tog = [Insert hook in next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop] 5 times, yarn over and draw through all 6 loops on hook.
Special Technique
Join with sc = Place a slip knot on hook, insert hook in indicated stitch, yarn over and draw up a loop, yarn over and draw through both loops on hook.
Notes
Wall hanging is made from backdrop, tree, and ornaments. Backdrop is made in rows with rod pocket for inserting dowel or curtain rod. Tree and Star are made separately and sewn to wall hanging. Stocking and Mitten ornaments are made separately with a loop to hang them from buttons.
Use larger hook and hold 2 strands of yarn together for backdrop and tree. All other pieces are made with smaller hook and single strand of yarn.
To change color, work last stitch of old color to last yarn over. Yarn over with new color and draw through all loops on hook to complete stitch. Proceed with new color. Cut old color.
