Mini Crochet Christmas Trees


Can't believe I barely got my sparse fall decorations up and I'm getting ready to change over to Christmas.  Attending the Spirit of Christmas Fair in London got me in the holiday spirit.  

We only brought a select few Christmas items to decorate with.  So, I was trying to think of what I could make when I saw a picture of crocheted trees.  It wasn't very hard to come up with a quick and easy pattern for these little guys.  I was sort of going for a Dr. Seuss look...I don't know.



Christmas Tree Crochet Patterns

SC—single crochet
BPSC—back post single crochet
BPSC DEC—back post single crochet decrease

Notes:  Work in the round, do not turn at the end of a row.  Begin first SC in same stitch as slip stitch.  This will leave one remaining SC at the end of each round that you will skip and keep your seam straighter.
Slip stitch to first SC to join each round.

I used Aran yarn with a G hook, but you could use any yarn type for this pattern.
