Hi, I'm Ava Lynne Green, and today I'm going to show you how to knit a miniature Christmas tree. To start off, you cast on 13 stitches and knit one row. The next row, we're going to knit five and going to work a double decrease, double decrease means to slip one, knit the next two stitches together and then pass that stitch that you just slipped over the ones you knitted together and pull it off the needle. The next row we're going to do another double decrease. This time knit four. When you get down you do another row of double decreases which gives you seven. When you get down to five stitches, then it's time to do the second level of the tree. So you cast on three stitches here and three stitches at the end of this row and then start decreasing again, get it down to three stitches, cast on two stitches on each side and decrease down to just one stitch at the end. That gives you one side of your tree, you do three, three sides of the tree and this is a triangle piece that gives you your bottom and if you leave your tails nice and long when you cast on and bind off, you can just use your tails to overcast the sides of the trees and you keep going all the way down to the bottom, then take your third tree and it connects to this one on one side and to this tree on the other side and you have a small triangular tree. Put your triangle piece on the bottom and before you finish overcasting our bottom piece together, take some fiberfill and stuff your tree and stuff your little points to make them stick out and then finish putting your bottom together. And you have your miniature knitted tree ready to decorate. And you can find these instructions and more at Terri's Yarns and Crafts.
