Instructions

Small Tree

With 4.5 mm crochet hook.

R1: MR, 6 hdc in ring. Do not join this or any round, you will continue in a spiral in BLO until R11 (6)

R2: * hdc, hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (9)

R3: * hdc in next 2 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (12)

R4: * hdc in next 3 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (15)

R5: * hdc in next 4 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (18)

R6: * hdc in next 5 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (21)

R7: * hdc in next 6 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (24)

R8: * hdc in next 7 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (27)

R9: * hdc in next 8 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (30)

R10: * hdc in next 9 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (33)

R11: * hdc in next 10 st(s), hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (36)

R12: in tlo for this round, * hdc 7, dec * repeat from to * around (32)

R13: under both loops for the remaining rounds, * sc 6, dec * repeat from * to * around (28)

R14: * sc 5, dec * repeat from * to * around (24) This is a good time to start adding stuffing to your tree. Be careful to push the stuffing towards the top of the tree and leave bottom unstuffed. We want our tree to lay flat. Continue adding stuffing as appropriate until the last round.

R15: * sc 2, dec * repeat from * to * around (18)

R16: * sc 1, dec * repeat from * to * around (12)

Cut yarn and sew opening closed. Weave in your ends.

With 4.5 mm crochet hook and off-white yarn.  Connect yarn in the first stitch of the second row, chain 1, sc in the same stitch. You could begin at the first stitch of the tree if you like but I find single crochet a little bulky and wanted not to be so near the top. But, it’s up to you! Just remember to crochet a little loose. If you can’t achieve that, go up a hook size.

Continue making sc in the loop that is left unworked around.

When you reach right below the first stitch you made you will jump to next row.

Lean the tree towards you to locate the next round and place your hook in the stitch diagonally, not right below your last stitch.

This will create an even transfer and not a “step”. This is how it if going to look like.

Continue making sc around by skipping one round. Push sc with your fingers down because they tend to show their back side. You can continue until the end of the tree -not the bottom- or you can stop whenever you like. I used this version for my larger tree also and stopped before reaching the middle. Again, it’s up to you and you can play with the results as much as you like.

Connect yarn in the first stitch of the first round and make a slip stitch.

Continue making slip stitches in all the unworked loops around.

This time we will not skip any stitches or rounds. Just keep working your way to the bottom of the tree.

This is how it’s going to look like after a few rounds.

 

Big Tree

R2: * hdc, hdc inc * repeat from * to * around (9)
