Nine different Christmas trees which are perfect for making baubles, hanging ornaments, garlands, wreaths and other decorations. They can be left as they are or decorated.

The trees are knit flat and are approximately 10cm (4 inches) tall.

This pattern includes instructions on how to make your trees into a 30cm wreath, if you wish to do so. You will need to knit 14 trees for the wreath.

You will need:

To make the trees alone:

  • Cascade 220 yarn, approximately 16m per tree, in Forest Green (8267), White (8505) and Brown (8686).
  • 4mm (US 6) knitting needles.
  • A tapestry needle.
  • Toy stuffing.
  • Optional: decorations such as sequins, beads, mini pompoms or mini jingle bells.

To make the wreath in addition:

  • A 30cm diameter wreath base.
  • Approximately 160m of Cascade 220 in Mineral Blue (8311).
  • Glue or double-sided sticky tape suitable for fabric.
