About the Amigurumi crochet Christmas Tree Pattern

I’ve always been a little intimidated by the amigurumi crochet method even though it just uses basic crochet stitches – the single crochet (US) and double crochet (UK). I think it’s the worry of getting lost, losing count, not working the spiral method properly and so on.

Like most things in crochet (and in life in fact) it’s not as bad as you think once you have a go!

This little amigurumi tree decoration is a great place to start if you’re new to the technique because the increases as you work round and round are symmetrical and so much easier to keep track of.

There are a few things that will help you with this project and any other ami patterns you want to try –

  • Have a stitch marker at the ready! Pop the marker in the first stitch of each round so even if you do lose count you know where to work back to.
  • Think in continuous spirals – you won’t be joining the end of each round with a slip stitch as you would in other crochet methods. This means it’s much easier to get lost BUT it looks so beautiful when it’s done and you won’t be able to tell where the rounds start and finish.
  • Find a comfortable hook to work with. The nature of amigurumi means that it has a tight tension so make sure you find a hook that is comfy for you to use so that your hands aren’t tight too!

If you fall in love with crochet amigurumi too then I have some other little projects you might like to try that are a bit more advanced than this one. How about an amigurumi crochet Easter egg pattern? Or a cute chick, lamb and bunny shelfie set with little dangly legs?!

If you don’t have chance to make this right now then don’t worry, just make sure to pin it for later so you don’t lose it using this image:

Tension and Sizing Options

The finished tree including the star measures 29cm by 15cm (11 1/2in by 6in).

Tension (gauge) is 20 sts and 20 rows to measure 10 by 10cm over pattern using a 3.5mm hook, or size needed to obtain correct tension.

Yarn for this Christmas Tree Pattern

To make this crochet tree I used Yarn and Colors Must Have 4ply yarn. It’s 100% cotton yarn, 50g/125m/137yds and used 2 Balls of Yarn A (Peridot).

For the star on top I used Anchor Artiste Metallic, 80% viscose, 20% metallized polyester. 25g/100m. 1 Ball of yarn B (Gold and Silver)

A great alternative yarn if you’d like to go for luxury is Scheepjes Bamboo Soft. Perfect for a treat and to give a slightly different texture to your crochet tree.

Other Materials You Will Need

Along with your yarn, you will need the following:

2.5mm US B/1 or C/2 and 3.5mm US E/4 crochet hooks – my favourites are Furls Streamline Swirl crochet hooks or Clover Amour crochet hooks.
Coloured Beads

Tapestry needle
Scissors
Stitch markers if desired
Card to form insert – approximately 40cm by 25cm (so that you can create the cone shape).

Crochet Christmas Tree Construction

The tree is crocheted from the top down and is worked in continuous spirals and shaped by increasing on certain rounds.

Once the main body of the tree decoration is complete, I’d recommend shaping your card insert to fit and try it out before adding the beads. Shape the card into a cone and tape it together before inserting it into the crochet tree shape.

Once you are happy the insert fits well remove it and sew on the beads using invisible thread wherever you’d like them on the tree.

Next, crochet the star and sew it in place on the top.

Finish by inserting the card cone and pop it up to display!

Pattern Notes

The Tree is worked using the amigurumi method.

Work in continuous spiral without closing off each round with a slip stitch.

You may find it helpful to place a marker in the first st of each round and move it up as you work.
