Little Fir Tree - 2 versions - Crochet Pattern
LITTLE FIR TREE
Aren‘t they adorable? :) These little fir trees would love to decorate your home and fill it with their cuteness.
You can choose from two types of trees here: the cute variant with arms, legs, and face, and the more neutral version with stem. The latter can be made with arms and face as well though. Whatever you like. :)
The fitting santa‘s hat is included as well, of course. You can make them in all kinds of lenghts, from short to super long.
All steps are explained in detail in words and pictures, so this pattern is suitable for practiced beginners as well. This pattern contains 12 pages of crochet instructions and 18 pages of detailed step-by-step instructions.
Used techniques (US crochet terms): magic ring, chain, slip stitch, single crochet, increases and (invisible) decreases, crocheting in front loops and back loops – explained, (optional) changeing yarn-color. The figures are crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals as well as (optional) back and forth in rows.
With 2.0 mm hook and Sport weight yarn the fir tree gets to be 10 cm tall. With 3.0 mm hook and DK yarn the fir tree gets to be 15 cm tall. Without stem/legs in each case.

I'm Stephanie, mother of three and I live with my family in Germany.
I've been crocheting for a while now. My kids got me to it. When there's no merchandising on the market for the current favorit comic figure you just have to make it yourself. That's how my first crocheted figure came to life. And with that my crochet addiction. :)
My patterns are for beginners and advanced crocheters alike. Stuffed with photos and detailed step-by-step instructions (I think you could call them photo-tutorials). I learned crocheting by myself and often found it quite frustrating to get stuck in the middle of a pattern just because some key-information was simply missing (as a beginner pretty much everything is key-information). That's why in my patterns almost everything is explained with words and photos.
I'm currently converting my older patterns into a new layout. Here on Makerist you can find all the patterns that already have the new layout plus all my new creations.
Have fun browsing through my patterns and happy crocheting!
- Steph :)
