Knitted Christmas tree

Knitted Christmas tree decoration

We are counting the days till Christmas. Snow is already here and you can hear Christmas music everywhere. Almost all the houses are decorated and kids still making their own decorations for the tree or house. We are doing the same.

Last year I tried for the first time a knitted tree to decorate the Christmas tree. I made them green and I made only 3 of them. I wanted to make more this year and other colors but time wasn’t by my side. 

So, here is the one from last year.

With the Christmas cookies next to them, they looked amazing in the tree or on the table. I add silver to look festive. They are easy to make and a nice way to learn to knit.

Use any kind of yarn you have and needles to go with yarn. Leftovers are so welcome to this project.  

K = knit
k2tog = knit 2 stitches together
CO= cast on

All the tree will be knit in garter stitch. For the shape of the Christmas tree knit together two last stitches of every row.

Cast 21 stitches.
Knit 21 stitches for row 1.
