I wanted to make another tree themed decoration like my fabric Christmas trees and fabric Christmas tree bunting but decided that rather than using fabric I wanted to do something using crochet instead. I thought it would also be a great idea to do a bit more corner to corner crochet after completing my Christmas gnome cushion, so went down the route of making corner to corner crochet squares that could do the same as the fabric squares in my previous decorations. I also wanted to add in some decorations so added some red and blue baubles to the tree, I think I will make a couple more of these all with different coloured decorations and might even turn some into some bunting – if I don’t run out of time first!.
Corner to corner crochet Christmas trees:
Wool in different shades of green to make the tree
Brown wool for the trunk
Two different coloured wools for the decorations.
For one tree make one of each the of square sizes below:
Once you have your 4 squares take the largest square fold up one of the corners and sew to secure. The take the next square, fold up one of the corners and sew to secure then place on top of the previous square so the point of the folded edge is just below the bottom edge of the next square and sew to secure. Repeat with the remaining squares.
Next make the decorations and trunk using a 4mm hook:
Decorations (blue and red wool): Make a magic ring, ch1, 6sc into ring, fasten off leaving long thread to attach.
Trunk (brown wool): ch6, sc into 2nd ch from hook, sc along rest of the row.
Rows 1-4: ch1 (doesn’t count as a stitch) sc along row.
Fasten off, leaving long thread to attach.
Attach the trunk to the bottom squares. then attach the decorations onto the folded points of the squares.
Next make the loop for the top of the tree using a 4mm hook and red wool:
ch18, then fasten off.
Attach to the top of the tree.
