Crochet Christmas Tree With Buttons!

At work last week I noticed someone had put up a Christmas garland on their cubicle wall. It was Monday morning and I had just walked into the office so the sight of cheery holiday decor made me smile. It also made me realise it was time to decorate my desk area too!

Crochet Christmas Tree with Buttons

This tree is about 5 inches tall, which I think is the perfect size for a desk top Christmas tree. PDF can be downloaded for FREE here in the shop! Merry Christmas!

Materials:

– Worsted weight yarn in green. I used Bernat – Kelly Green

-4.00mm hook

-Yarn needle

-Polyester fiberfill

-Assorted buttons, needle, and thread

Stitches:

ch – chain

sc – single crochet

inc – increase (sc 2 in same st)

dec – decrease (sc 2 tog)

BLO – sc in back loop only

Pattern is worked in continuous rounds, do not join or turn at the end of each round. Use a stitch marker to keep track of beginning/end of each round.

Round 1: make 5 sc in ring, either magic ring or Ch 2 and sc 5 in 2nd ch from hook.

Round 2: sc in each st around.

Round 3: inc in each st (10 sts)

Rounds 4-5: sc in each st around.

Round 6: [inc in next st, sc in next st] repeat around (15 sts)

Rounds 7-8: sc in each st around.

Round 9: [inc in next st, sc in next 2 sts] repeat around (20 sts)

Rounds 10-11: sc in each st around.

Round 12: [inc in next st, sc in next 3 sts] repeat around (25 sts)

Rounds 13-14: sc in each st around.

Round 15: [inc in next st, sc in next 4 sts] repeat around (30 sts)

Rounds 16-17: sc in each st around.

Round 18: [inc in next st, sc in next 5 sts] repeat around (35 sts)

Rounds 19-20: sc in each st around.

Round 21: [inc in next st, sc in next 6 sts] repeat around (40 sts)

Rounds 22-23: sc in each st around.

Sew buttons to tree. You have the option to fasten off at this point and leave the tree hollow or you can stuff and continue crocheting to close as follows:

Round 24: in BLO [dec, sc in next 6 sts] repeat around (35 sts)

In both loops again…

Round 25: [dec, sc in next 5 sts] repeat around (30 sts)

Round 26: [dec, sc in next 4 sts] repeat around (25 sts)

Round 27: [dec, sc in next 3 sts] repeat around (20 sts)

Round 28: [dec, sc in next 2 sts] repeat around (15 sts)

Round 29: [dec, sc in next st] repeat around (10 sts)

Round 30: dec around (5 sts)

Make sure you don’t put in too much stuffing or you’ll have a wobbly tree. Fasten off and, using yarn needle, pull tail end through centre and up toward top of tree. Secure yarn in any stitch to hold in place – this will give the bottom a sort of indent to help it keep flat on your desk.

  1. I started on this tree last night. It seemed to flare way too fast. So just to confirm I have it right, row 3 is repeat of single crochet in a stitch and then two sc in the next stitch so that you are putting an increase every other stitch. Then row 4 is sc each stitch. I had a marker in so don’t know where I went wrong…..will try again tonight!

    1. Thank you so much for pointing this out, you’re right about it flaring too fast – it seems I published the first draft of the design, sorry! Will be updating the pattern soon 🙂
