Christmas Tree Crochet Patterns

Crochet Christmas tree patterns are so versatile and leave lots of room for creativity. Add lights or snow, adjust the height, add a base… the possibilities are endless. 

In this list, you’ll find patterns that you can hang on your (real) Christmas tree, string across your mantle, stand up on an end table, use to top a bottle of wine, or attach to your wrapped gifts. There’s a variety of sizes and shapes included. Most of these crochet Christmas tree patterns are great for beginners, so don’t feel intimidated if you’re just starting out!

Crochet Christmas trees also make excellent gifts during the holidays. Or, you can make up a bunch of them ahead of time and sell them online or locally. There are so many fun patterns to choose from, so giving or selling them is a perfect excuse to try them all (okay, maybe not ALL…)!

Favorite Crochet Supplies

Here are some supplies you will need to create your crocheted Christmas trees.

  • Crochet hook(s)
  • Yarn
  • Stitch markers
  • Other notions (yarn needle, scissors, and other crochet supplies)

Some of these Christmas trees also suggest additional supplies, such as wooden bases, dowels, mini terracotta pots, embroidery thread, pompoms, and beads. Be sure to check your pattern for the specific tools and supplies required.

Best Yarn for Crochet Decor Projects

Worsted is the most popular yarn weight for many crochet decor projects. It’s easy to work with (not too fine nor too bulky), holds up well over time, is affordable, and offers plenty of colors and fiber options. Some of my favorite yarns for crocheted Christmas trees include Red Heart Super Saver and Bernat Super Value Yarn.

Though you’ll notice that worsted is the most popular yarn weight in the list below, a number of the patterns will turn out best with different yarn weights. I’ve listed the best yarn for each pattern right here in the post for easy access.

Hey! I know it’s only April but I’m planning for Christmas already. I love these trees. But number 17 doesn’t lead to the pictured tree. It leads to a crochet tree skirt. Thank you for posting these!
