How to Knit Christmas Trees the Easy Way- a flat knit pattern for decorative Christmas trees. Perfect for ornaments, garland or as gift toppers!
These little knit Christmas trees are the perfect addition to your Christmas décor! They’re knit in Garter Stitch and the shape is created by knitting two stitches together at the sides. This pattern is ideal for beginners.
Each tree consists of a front and a back. They are sewn together at the sides. Then they’re stuffed with fiberfill and the seams are sewn closed. Below is a video tutorial and the written pattern.
