Crochet Christmas Tree (Happy Festive Tree Applique) – Free Pattern

I have a wonderfully versatile holiday pattern for you! It’s super fun, quick to make and has a lot of creative flexibility. You can choose to decorate your tree or keep it simple with a minimalist appearance. Crochet it in traditional colours or in more modern colours…both options look fab!

This is the perfect stash buster project because you can use any yarn with a complimenting hook size. I’ve written this pattern using worsted weight yarn but you can definitely get creative and experiment with different weights and brands.

Crochet Christmas Stockings To Make For The Holidays

One of my favourite Christmas traditions is hanging up the stockings. We didn’t have a fireplace growing up so we hung them up on the banister.
