It is time to actively prepare for the most fabulous and magical holiday, which is expected by both adults and children - the New Year! Today we suggest you to tie a wonderful souvenir Christmas tree. This Christmas tree is perfect for both interior decoration and gift.

For knitting and decorating Christmas trees, we will need:

  • Yarn Art Christmas yarn (2-2.5 hanks, 50 g each, depending on how high your Christmas tree is),
  • hooks (I used the hook 1.9 for the cone-shaped base of the Christmas tree and knitting the bottom and the hook 2.25 for knitting the Christmas tree twigs),
  • synthetic filler
  • old unnecessary disk
  • rhinestones,
  • tapes
  • sequins
  • large bead
  • and other types of materials for decoration.

So, we start

Row 1: we make a sliding loop and knit 3 air loops and 9 CCHs into it (columns with nakida).


Attention: from the second row, knit the CLO not under the entire loop of the chain of the previous row, but under the back wall, so that lines can be drawn along the canvas.

2nd row - knit in a circle 3 air loops * CCH, 2CCH into the next loop * 5 times from * to * and then CCH into the same loop, from where 3 air => 16 CCH.

3 row - 3 air loops, * 2 CCH into the next loop, CCH, CCH * and then CCH into the same loop, from where 3 air => 21 CCH
4 row - 3 air loops, CCH in each loop, connect.

We continue to knit the cone of Christmas trees as follows:
5 row - 3 air loops, * CCH, CCH, 2CCH into the next loop * and alternate and then CCH into the same loop, from where 3 air loops and connect => 28 CCH.
6 row - 3 air loops, CCH in each loop.
7 row - 3 air loops, * CCH, CCH, CCH, 2CCH into the loop *, and alternate and then CCH into the same loop, from where 3 air loops and connect => 35 CCH.
8 row - 3 air loops, CCH in each loop.
9 row -3 air loops, * CCH, CCH, CCH, CCH, 2CCH into the loop *, and alternate and then CCH into the same loop, from where 3 air loops and connect => 42 CCH.
10 row - 3 air loops, CCH in each loop.
11 row - 3 air loops, * CCH, CCH, CCH, CCH, CCH, 2CCH into the loop *, and alternate and then CCH into the same loop, from where 3 air loops and connect => 49 CCH.
12 row - 3 air loops, CCH in each loop.
13 row -3 air loops, * CCH, CCH, CCH, CCH, CCH, CCH, 2CCH into the loop * and alternate and then CCH into the same loop, from where 3 air loops and connect => 56 CCH.
14 row - knit on the pattern of CLS to the end of the row.
15 row - 3 air loops, * CCH, CCH, CCH, CCH, CCH, CCH, CCH, 2CCH into the loop * and alternate and then CCH into the same loop, from where 3 air loops connect => 63 CCH.
16 row -3 air loops, CCH in each loop.
17 row - similarly, add 7 loops evenly => 70 CCH.
18 row - knit on the pattern of CLS to the end of the row.
19 row - in the same way, add 7 loops evenly => 77 SSN.
20 row and 21 row - knit on the pattern of CLO to the end of the row.
Row 22 - similarly, add 7 loops evenly => 84 CCH.
23 row - knit on the CLP pattern to the end of the row.

Those. if you noticed, from 5 rows almost always increases of 7 loops through the row. The number of loops is always a multiple of 7, so the increments are uniform. I brought the increase to the 23 series. if you need a Christmas tree higher, then you can continue as many as you like :). As a result, we obtain a cone billet for tying twigs.

We start vyvyvyazyvaniya twigs

Twigs consist of 2 rows. We will impose them on every third row of the cone-shaped base. The first branch fits on the second line from the top of the tree. Note that in the first row we knit columns with 2 naquids. This is necessary so that our twigs overlap the base of the cone as much as possible, i.e. we are at the expense of columns with 2 nakida in the first row of the branches make the branches longer.

1 row - knit for the front walls of the 2nd row of the cone. Using a connecting pole, join any loop of the 2nd row of the cone, * 3 air loops, CC2H, 3 air loops, 2CC2H * to the same loop, 1 air loop, skip the next 2 loops and re-knit * 2SS2H, 3 air loops , 2CC2H, 1 air loop * and until the end of such a shell, knit through 2 loops into a third one, join with a connecting column in the top of a column of 3 air loops. The result should be 6 shells.
2nd row - connect with the arch (connecting loops move into the arch) and tie out of it * 3CCN, 3 picos (the appearance will be like a card cross), 3 CCN, 1 air loop *, from the next arch the same until the end of the row thread to break.

The photo shows how to knit the first row of twigs.

And now the second row:

Thus, the first row of twigs is ready. Now we cut the thread and on the seamy side we hook it to the base with the hook and pull it together with the thread to start working inside out, we fasten it there.
We skip 2 rows of the base of the cone and on the third we start to knit the twigs again.
Only when knitting the 2nd and subsequent rows of twigs do I knit * through 2 loops in the third, through 2 loops in the third, through 3 in the fourth *, so alternating. Because if you always knit through 2 into the third, then you care too much. But it's like someone like that. You can choose for themselves.

As a result, we already have a Christmas tree without a bottom.

Getting to knitting bottom:

Bottom for the Christmas tree - a flat circle. We start with 6 sc and follow the rules of a flat circle. We increase the number of loops to the required (in our case - 84 loops, because in the warping of the cone 84 loops) and then we knit another 1-2 rows of 84 SCs without increasing the number of loops.

The diameter of a flat circle will be approximately the diameter of the disk. I do that. If your knitting density will be different, you can always either reduce the disk in diameter, or cut a circle from the plastic folder, which we then go to the base for a more stable Christmas tree position.

When the flat circle is ready from the seamy side, we attach a disk or a plastic circle and connecting loops (we enter the hook under the chain of the flat circle and the chain of the base of the cone, grab the thread and pull it through all the loops and repeat it in a circle). We unite the circle and our Christmas tree. Connections do not spend until the very end, because still need to fill the Christmas tree with synthetic filler. Therefore, when approximately 1/5 is left, I fill the Christmas tree with synthetic filler and then to the very end I attach the lower base to the Christmas tree.

Here is a Christmas tree (photo without flash and flash). Due to the texture of the yarn, it is beautiful and festive in itself. But of course I want to decorate it!

I usually decorate with reps or satin ribbons, sequins, attached rhinestones.

Here are a few Christmas trees of different colors and different kinds of decorations:
