Easy Christmas Tree Knitting Pattern

Easy Christmas Tree Knitting Pattern- a beginner-friendly project for the perfect holiday decor!

Easy Christmas Tree Knitting Pattern

Knit Christmas trees were a “must” on my holiday knitting list. I’m really happy with the way this pattern turned out! These trees may look difficult, but they’re ideal for beginners! This Christmas tree pattern consists of two sides. They are knit flat and there is some basic increasing and decreasing. After the sides are knit, they are sewn together and stuffed with fiber fill. This pattern is a quick knit thanks to the super bulky yarn and large needles.

These knit Christmas trees can either be hung from the top and used as garland, ornaments, or even attached to wreaths. Mounting them (as I did here) is a fun way to display them. Just insert a cinnamon stick and glue the trees to a wood slice (found at craft stores). They can also be decorated with a star and small pompoms as ornaments.
