As I was making one of my crochet pine cones, I got an idea! Why not make a few pattern adjustments, flip it upside down, and…a pine cone becomes a Christmas tree!!! On the first tree I made I used Red Heart Super Saver yarn and on the second tree, I used Lily Sugar ‘n Cream. The tree made with the Red Heart yarn came out taller and more sturdy that the one made with the Lily yarn, but I like them both!
Here is the pattern for the Christmas Tree. I’ll post the extremely simple patterns for the ornaments and the star tomorrow, December 4, 2009! Here are the patterns for the ornaments and star.
Pattern created by Gayle www.planetmfiles.com
Size: approximately 3 1/2 inches (varies depending on yarn used)
- I used Red Heart Super Saver Green for one tree. I used Lily Sugar ‘n Cream Dark Pine for another tree.
- Size G Hook
Gauge: Not important
Abbreviations: sc = single crochet, ch = chain, st = stitch, sl st = slip stitch, dc = double crochet
- Ch 22
- *dc in 3rd ch from hook, ch 4, sl st in first chain of the ch 4 you just did* Repeat this step 3 more times in the same “3rd ch from hook” stitch.
- Repeat step 2 in each of the remaining chains of the original ch 22.
- At the end of the last dc in the last ch don’t do the ch 4 or sl st. Just finish off after the last dc. Weave in yarn ends.
This detail photo shows the original ch 22, the first dc and the ch 4

As you work you will be creating a spiral. The spiral becomes a Christmas Tree!
