    Finish off. No need to leave a long tail.

TRIM (Using green yarn)

  1. Holding tree upside down, insert your hook into the first front loop stitch from R16 of the tree. Make a sc to secure the yarn. *Make 3 dc in the next sc, sl st 1 in each of the next 2 sc* rep 16 times.

  2. Finish off.

  3. Still holding your tree upside down, insert your hook into the first front loop stitch from R26 of the tree. Make a sc to secure the yarn. *Make 3 dc in the next sc, sl st 1 in each of the next 2 sc* rep 26 times.

    Finish off.

  4. Still holding your tree upside down, insert your hook into the first front loop stitch of R35 of the tree. Make a sc to secure the yarn. *Make 3 dc in the next sc, sl st 1 in each of the next 2 sc* rep 36 times.

  5. Finish off. Weave in all ends.

  6. Insert your 12mm safety eyes between R29 & 30 of tree, 13 sts apart (Hint: insert the 1st eye. Count 13 sts from the hole where you inserted the 1st eye and insert the 2nd eye.)

  7. Embroider a small smile about 3 sts wide right between the eyes using black yarn. Cut out two small circles of pink felt for the cheeks and sew them to either side of the head slightly below to the side of the eyes. Alternatively, if you don’t want to sew them on, you can glue them in place.

TREE BOTTOM (Using green yarn)

  1. R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook
    R2: *Inc * rep 6 times (12 sts)
    R3: *Sc 1, inc* rep 6 times (18 sts)
    R4: *Sc 2, inc* rep 6 times (24 sts)
    R5: *Sc 3, inc* rep 6 times (30 sts)
    R6: *Sc 4, inc* rep 6 times (36 sts)
    R7: *Sc 5, inc* rep 6 times (42 sts)
    R8: *Sc 6, inc* rep 6 times (48 sts)
    R9: *Sc 7, inc* rep 6 times (54 sts)
    R10: *Sc 8, inc* rep 6 times (60 sts)
    R11: *Sc 9, inc* rep 6 times (66 sts)
    R12: *Sc 10, inc* rep 6 times (72 sts)
    R13: *Sc 11, inc* rep 6 times (78 sts)
    R14: *Sc 12, inc* rep 6 times (84 sts)
    R15: *Sc 13, inc* rep 6 times (90 sts)
    R16: *Sc 14, inc* rep 6 times (96 sts)
    R17: *Sc 15, inc* rep 6 times (102 sts)
    R18: *Sc 16, inc* rep 6 times (108 sts)

  2. Finish off leaving a very long tail. We will now join the bottom and top of the tree by sewing them together. Going through both loops of the bottom and the back loops of the top, whipstitch them together. They should align perfectly since there are 108 sts around on both top and bottom. In order to make the bottom 6 of the tree nice and flat, we will cut out a 5-inch (approx.) circle of cardboard and place it on top of the stuffing about halfway around. Keep stuffing the tree (underneath the cardboard piece) until it’s all closed up.

TRUNK (Using brown yarn)

  1. R1: Ch 2, 6 sc in 2nd ch from hook
    R2: *Inc * rep 6 times (12 sts)
    R3: *Sc 1, inc* rep 6 times (18 sts)
    R4: *Sc 2, inc* rep 6 times (24 sts)
    R5: *Sc 3, inc* rep 6 times (30 sts)
    R6: *Sc 4, inc* rep 6 times (36 sts)
    R7: *Sc 5, inc* rep 6 times (42 sts)
    R8: *Sc 6, inc* rep 6 times (48 sts)
    R9: *Sc 7, inc* rep 6 times (54 sts)
    R10: In BLO *sc 7, dec* rep 6 times (48 sts)
    R11-14: Sc in all 48 sts (4 rounds total—48 sts)

  2. Finish off leaving long tail for sewing. Like we did for the tree, add a 3-inch circle of cardboard to the bottom of the trunk. This will give it a flat bottom and help add stability so that your tree can stand up on its own. Stuff and sew to the bottom of the tree.

STAR (Using yellow yarn)

  1. R1: Ch 2, 5 sc in 2nd ch from hook
    R2: *Inc* rep 5 times (10 sts)
    R3: *Ch 2, trc in the next sc, ch 2, sl st in the same sc you made the trc, sl st in the next sc* rep 5 times (You should have a five-pointed star by the end.)

  2. Finish off leaving long tail for sewing. Sew star to the top of the tree. Weave in all ends.

ORNAMENTS

  1. I used premade pom poms in assorted colors that I bought from Hobby Lobby for my ornaments. The ones I bought were 0.25 in. (0.64 cm). I glued mine to the tree using clear gel tacky glue. You could also use a hot 7 glue gun or fabric glue. There’s no particular order you have to attach them in, just as many or as few as you like, spaced to your liking.

  2. Feel free to creative with your decorations! You could use ribbons, mini bows, mini bells, or other small things to decorate your tree with.
