Aren‘t they adorable? :)
These little fir trees would love to decorate your home and fill it with their cuteness.

You can choose from two types of trees here: the cute variant with arms, legs, and face, and the more neutral version with stem. The latter can be made with arms and face as well though. Whatever you like. :)

The fitting santa‘s hat is included as well, of course. You can make them in all kinds of lenghts, from short to super long.

All steps are explained in detail in words and pictures, so this pattern is suitable for practiced beginners as well.
This pattern contains 12 pages of crochet instructions and 18 pages of detailed step-by-step instructions.

Used techniques (US crochet terms): magic ring, chain, slip stitch, single crochet, increases and (invisible) decreases, crocheting in front loops and back loops – explained, (optional) changeing yarn-color.
The figures are crocheted in continuous rounds/spirals as well as (optional) back and forth in rows.

With 2.0 mm hook and Sport weight yarn the fir tree gets to be 10 cm tall. With 3.0 mm hook and DK yarn the fir tree gets to be 15 cm tall. Without stem/legs in each case.

You need it smaller or bigger? No problem! Simply use lighter or heavier yarn.
