Pattern Design + Construction:

Garlands are one of my favorite holiday crochet projects to design. They're a quick and easy way to add a handmade, affordable and festive touch of holiday décor to any space.


This pattern is so versatile! These crochet trees are adorable hung as bunting over the buffet or mantle. I like to hang my crochet garlands in my cubicle at work for some holiday cheer! They're also the perfect size for Christmas crochet coasters or cute little gift tag accessories!


Each crochet Christmas tree is worked in flat rows with a border added to the edges. Using the back loop only single crochet stitch creates a nice cozy texture. The trunk is crocheted onto the completed tree base. The trees are strung together with jute for a minimalist feel, but you could also use yarn or ribbon. The finished trees measure approximately 6 inches tall. You could easily create larger trees by increasing the size of your crochet hook and yarn weight.

Yarn:

For this free pattern, we'll be using medium (4) worsted weight yarn. I really enjoy using worsted weight yarn for most of my projects because of the versatility as well as the availability in most craft stores. Worsted weight yarn also tends to come in very affordable brands. You can easily substitute with other brands and colors as long as the ounces per gram are similar. I've used the following for this project:

  • I Love This Yarn, Medium 4, 7 oz / 199 g, in the color 20 / Ivory

  • I Love This Yarn, Medium 4, 7 oz / 199 g, in the color 260 / Light Sage

  • Red Heart Super Saver, Medium 4, 7 oz / 198 g, in the color Café Latte


The crochet Christmas Tree Garland uses worsted weight yarn in a beautiful holiday color palette.
