Super easy xmas tree December 3, 2007

Filed under: amigurumi,crochet,free patterns — gnathalie2 @ 10:32 am

I am such a huge fan of ‘less is more’, especially when it comes to amigurumi.  While i do enjoy super detailed creations,  i like my patterns to be super duper easy~ that way anyone can add to it to make it their own!  So here are a couple xmas trees i made, i actually made them a couple weeks ago but the kitties LOVE playing with these!

Very basic, very simple!  Please understand that the ‘lumpiness’ and ‘worn outness’ is from the frequent kitty attacks that these trees have undergone!! 

Here is tree #1 all fancied up:

NOTES FOR BOTH TREES!  PLEASE READ!!

1. Obviously, stuff the tree before you sew it closed.  I took tiny pieces of fiberfill and kinda squished it around in the tree to get a ‘tree-like’ shape.

2.  For the decrease rounds in both tree patterns:  For these none of the rounds have to be ‘exact’, and both of the ‘bottoms’ will look like they have too many rounds to fit.  It’s supposed to!  Add more rounds if you want, or decrease however you want~ after you stuff the tree, you ‘push’ the bottom rounds up into the piece, that is so it’ll stand on it’s own.  I’ll put up a pic in a minute!

    This is great. I may try it to decorate our non-seasonal old people house. My kids would like that. And we could decorate differently depending on the holiday! Yay!

    Aloha and thank you.

    Hi there! I love your patterns and have been wanting to try out them but I am not sure how to read it. I know the basic crochet knot but that is about it. Would you mind giving me a few tips of even pointing me to other sites that might have some tutorial? Thanks so much!
    PS Do you buy the way have an Etsy shop?

  3. Akua Says:

    Brilliant! I riffed on this and made one tiny one and dig it!
    May make more to give away: your bottom is a key,key insight that lets this stand. Too bad i can’t upload a pic. Thank you so very much. Merci Beaucoup. Asante Sana. Muchos Gracias! Dom Arigato.

    Hi there! Hopefully you check the comments on this every now and again, because I have a question about this pattern.

    In the pattern for tree #1, once you have 6 sc in a ring, how do you get 9 stitches from only decreasing by one stitch? (2sc in first sc, sc around would only make 7 stitches total). I’m sure I can do an extra round to increase the number from 7 to 9, I just wanted to make sure I wasn’t missing anything.

    Thanks! And thanks for the fun pattern. 🙂

    • gnathalie2 Says:

      i should have been more clear, sorry!! whenever i write (2sc, sc) around it means to repeat that sequence for that round~ so the stitches for that round will be:
      2sc-sc-2sc-sc-2sc-sc = 9 total 🙂

    THANX! Im only twelve and this was nice and easy, i have made stuffed animals and a lot of other stuff but this was one of the nicest things ive made so thank you so much. My dad wanted me to make something like this and well u helped me =D

  6. Stacey Says:

    Just finished the larger tree, thank you so much for sharing your pattern 🙂

    Just a note for anyone else attempting it, I think the decrease in rnd 37 should read “sc2tog, sc in next 2 around (16 sc)” rather than in next 4 around.

    Great little project, quick and easy & just what I was looking for, thanks! Merry Christmas xx
