This Woodland Christmas Tree crochet pattern stitches up quickly and makes a wonderfully whimsical little tree to add to your decor, hang on your tree, or even pin to a lapel.
Best of all, you can work up this Woodland Christmas Tree crochet pattern in any weight yarn you have on hand and crochet it to any size you desire! I’ve included the supplies and directions here to make this lace version shown, but I’ve worked up a larger one in worsted weight yarn following this same pattern and am working on another with T-shirt yarn … so fun!
