FO - Crocheted Christmas Tree

I started this project before Christmas, it worked up quickly but then I got distracted, made a mistake with counting and put it on the shelf in Time Out.

On Christmas day I decided I'd better finish it otherwise it wouldn't be used at all this year. Barely half an hour later it was done, simples. Kind of wish I hadn't procratinated so long with it!

It's a simple pattern to follow, you basically make a cone and then work back up to the top making the branches.

I bought some beads to decorate mine with but actually I rather like it with just the simple sequin thread decoration so I'm going to leave it as it is. It's a cute little thing on my mantle piece and makes me smile

Next Friday I'm going to finally show off my first colourwork cardigan. My daughter has barely taken it off since the buttons were sewn on so either our house is rather cold or she loves it a lot :-)

Today I'm linking in with Fiber Arts Friday and Creative Friday

    1. Thank you. The boxes are great fun, we give the children Christmas "tasks" for each day. Things like "watch a Christmas film", "make mince pies", "help put up your Christmas tree" :)

  3. Great job! My mother made me a crocheted tree years ago and bought little ornaments that were tied or sewn on. Her pattern was a little different from this one - but they both look great.

    1. Me too, one of the reasons I wanted to learn how to crochet. Especially being able to make blankets, I'm not brave enough to attempt knitting one!
