Follow this whimsical crochet Christmas tree pattern to create a simply adorable new tabletop decoration this season. The bright colors are darling!

Choose a predominantly green yarn with flecks of rainbow colors for a bright and cheery crochet Christmas decoration. This pattern is a relatively simple amigurumi idea for beginners, and the finished results are so sweet. Hold two strands of yarn together to achieve the perfect yarn weight for crocheting this tree. Decorating with this tree is a great way to spruce up the office or the entryway during the holiday season. Practice your hand at amigurumi and make these for yourself or for loved ones this Christmas.


• This pattern is worked in a round. Do not join rounds.
• Place a stitch marker at the beginning of each round to hold your place.
• The tree is made as one piece and is worked from the bottom to top.
• The tree begins with the magic loop method. This technique is also called the magic ring, or drawstring ring and many helpful videos can be found on youtube. If you do not want to use a magic circle, you can CH 2 and work starting stitches into the first CH.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Sometimes I make pom pom crafts with the kids, or I use a string for hanging or establishments.

I mainly just use them as strings on ornamennts or borders on a decor or additional design.

This will be perfect for my table and as gifts this year!

How adorable and stylish. Great addition to the holiday decor.
