“Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree, how lovely are your stitches!”

This squishy Christmas tree is knit flat in 2 sections and sewn together and stuffed at the end. Decorate your tree with bead baubles and either place them randomly or co-ordinate colours with your own scheme.

This pattern is included in my Festive Knits eBook, featuring 5 other decoration patterns for the holiday season. Kits are also available containing all the materials you need to make each pattern!
