Hi, I'm Ava Lynne Green with Terri's Yarns and Crafts. I'm going to show you how to crochet a leafy Christmas tree. To do this project you will need about three ounces of a worsted white yarn, an H crochet hook and then depending on the size of the tree that you want, either a four inch Styrofoam cone or a 12 inch Styrofoam cone. To start out you're going to work a base that looks like this. I want to keep my unused loop showing on this side. I'm going to go into the back loop of each stitch so I'm going to chain one, four singles, four half doubles, then four double crochets and these are all just basic, basic crochet stitches. I'm going to fold it so that my short edges meet and do a slip stitch through one loop from each stitch and work from this wide end up to the narrow end. When you get finished up here and get it all seamed, you go ahead and cut your yarn and then add your yarn back down here on the base through one of the loops here at the join. We're going to make our first leaf which is chain four, do a treble, chain one and another treble or sometimes trebles are called triples and another chain one and you keep doing that until you have five treble crochets separated by chain one spaces and we're going to skip over here and find this unworked loop, go in the next unworked loop and do a single crochet. Once you are done, gather the top edge up, close it off and pull your tree down over the Styrofoam cone and it will probably stay down on its own but if you are concerned about it you can take straight pins and just pin the bottom of the tree into the cone. There you have a lacy crocheted Christmas tree. You can find the detailed instructions for this pattern and others at Terri's Yarns and Crafts.
