Here are some cute little trees I crocheted so we'd have some more decorations for Christmas.  I made the green ones using one skein of Vanna's Choice held with one skein of Crystal Palace's Little Flowers.  I also made a blue one:



The pattern is my own and is available free as a pdf on my blog (http://vegancraftastic.blogspot.com/2008/11/little-trees-pattern.html), but I'll post it here too:



------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cute little trees to decorate your home for the holidays, what could be better?  Well, lots of things, but these trees are pretty darn cute!  Worked in an easy spiral holding two yarns together, the Little Trees are super easy and super quick to crochet.  Happy holidays and I hope you enjoy the pattern!
 
Materials:

 
1 skein of Lion Brands Vannas Choice (100% acrylic - 170 yd/156 m ball) in green.

1 skein of Crystal Palaces Little Flowers (130 yds/50 gr - 96% nylon - 4% metallic fiber) in Dappled Forest.

 
Tools: I Hook (5.5mm), Stitch Marker 
 



Gauge
:

 
Gauge is not super important for this project. You want your crochet to be tight enough that the tree will stand up on its own, but not so tight that you hurt your hands.

 
Abbreviations Used:
 
    ch - chain, sc - single crochet, Inc - increase (2 sc in a single stitch), FO - finish off.   
 
 
 
Instructions
:
 
   Holding both strands of yarn together, ch 2.
 
  6 sc in 2nd ch from hook.
 
  Work plain (1 sc in each stitch).
 
  Inc in each sc.
 
  Work plain for two rounds.
 
  (Inc, sc) around.
 
  Work plain for two rounds. 
 
  (Inc, 2 sc) around.
 
  Work plain for two rounds.  For the small tree, work only one plain round and then FO and weave in all ends. 
 
  (Inc, 3 sc) around.
 
  Work plain for two rounds.  For the medium tree, FO and weave in all ends.
 
  (Inc, 4 sc) around.
 
  Work plain for two rounds.
 
  (Inc, 5 sc) around.
 
  Work plain for two rounds.  For the large tree, FO and weave in all ends.

These are adorable....maybe I'll get some snazzy yarn from the odd ball yarn swap and give this a go before Christmas.  Thank you for sharing your holiday cheer.   Cheesy
