Christmas Tree Crochet Pattern

“O Christmas Tree! O Christmas Tree!” Yes … I couldn’t resist singing this while crocheting :)

  Here’s a little Christmas tree pattern for you, my friends. I made it with a series of combination back post treble crochet stitches. It may seem a little tricky at first, but I know you can do it. I called the stitch a “Fir stitch” for the sake of this pattern, but it may technically be called something else in the crochet world. Hope you enjoy it!

Christmas Tree Pattern

Here’s what you need:

  • worsted weight yarn
  • H hook / 5 mm
  • tapestry needle, stitch marker

Finished tree measures approx 5 in. high by 4¼ in. wide

Special Stitches: Fir stitch: Work 1 BPtr around specified stitch, work 2 dc around post of tr st just made. Back post treble crochet (BPtr): Yarn over twice, insert hook around post of specified stitch, working from back to front to back, and pull up a loop (4 loops on hook), yarn over and pull through 2 loops, yarn over and pull through 2 loops again, yarn over and pull through remaining 2 loops.   The tree is worked in continuous rounds; do not join after each round.

Make a magic ring.

Round 1: Ch 1 (does not count as st), work 6 sc in ring — 6 sts.

Round 2: Ch 1 (does not count as st), work 1 dc in each st around — 6 sts.

Round 3: Work 1 Fir st around each dc of previous round — 6 Fir sts.

Round 4: Work 1 Fir st around the tr of each Fir st in previous round — 6 Fir sts.

Round 5: *Work 1 Fir st around the tr of the Fir st of previous round, work 1 Fir st around the 1st dc in that same Fir st of previous round, work 1 Fir st around the tr of the next Fir st of previous round, rep from * around — 9 Fir sts.

Rounds 6 and 7: Work 1 Fir st around the tr of each Fir st in previous round — Fir 9 sts.

Round 8: *Work 1 Fir st around the tr of the Fir st of previous round, work 1 Fir st around the 1st dc in that same Fir st of previous round, work 1 Fir st around the tr of each of the next 2 Fir sts of previous round, rep from * around — 12 Fir sts.

Rounds 9 and 10: Work 1 Fir st around the tr of each Fir st in previous round — 12 Fir sts.

Round 11: *Work 1 Fir st around the tr of the Fir st of previous round, work 1 Fir st around the 1st dc in that same Fir st of previous round, work 1 Fir st around the tr of each of the next 3 Fir sts of previous round, rep from * around — 15 Fir sts.

To finish off, ch 2 and Sl st into next st to join. Fasten off and weave in ends.

    This is so adorable! I wonder how they would look worked up in a variegated yarn. Your crochet skills are epic, found you on Craftgawker and I’m a big fan!!! Thank you for sharing. =^..^=
