Quick Christmas Trees

 I first made these cute little Christmas trees in 2013!     

But - like all good ideas - it was worth re-visiting ........ and I have really enjoyed making a bunch more this week. Now I have a little forest of Christmas Trees. 


Quick Christmas Trees

I used some sparkly yarn this time around for an extra festive look.

These trees are knitted with 2 strands of yarn held together, which allows for a lot of different colour variations. 

It is a very tight knit, but the finished product is quite stiff so hangs nicely.

Knitted Christmas Tree Decoration

Using 2 strands of red DK yarn and 4mm needles cast on 5sts 

Knit 4 rows 

Cut off red yarn

Join in 2 strands of green ...... or green & white .....  or try silver, gold, etc  

Cast on 6 stitches at the beginning of the next 2 rows       (17sts)

Knit 2 rows

Decrease row: Sl1, k1 psso, knit to last 2sts, k2tog           (15sts)

Repeat the last 3 rows until 3sts remain

Knit 2 rows

Sl1, k2tog psso, tie off this stitch leaving about 6 inches of yarn to create a loop for hanging the decoration if desired.

Weave in the ends
