Since you are visiting a blog post about cabled crochet Christmas trees I am guessing that you might feel like I do about Christmas! It is such a wonderful and happy season. Since I live in freezing Minnesota, I won’t go as far as saying it’s the most wonderful time of the year, especially when there are subzero temperatures, but it comes pretty darn close to the best!

I love decorating for Christmas and making our home look festive. This year I want to incorporate more crocheted items into our Christmas décor.

The idea to use cables came from this hat by Jess at Makeanddocrew. It is amazing how simple it is to create faux cables and there is a video which will show you how to loop the cables if you are having trouble figuring it out just by my words.

The cables can either be placed straight up and down or run diagonally. I happen to prefer the diagonal tree since the straight one isn’t completely straight. The increasing rows don’t throw the straight line off too much, but enough to bug me!

If your stitches are looking too lose where the stuffing will show through, you might want to go down a hook size.Adorable, easy to make, crochet christmas trees. Simple free crochet pattern.

Cabled Crochet Christmas Trees

Save this pattern on Ravelry

Skill Level: Easy

Materials:

US-Size H/8 Crochet Hook or desired hook size (I love these ergonomic and affordable hooks)
Worsted weight yarn less than 5 oz/230yds (I used RHSS in White and Hunter Green)
Large Eye Tapestry Needle
Stuffing
Stitch markers

Abbreviations:

sc – single crochet
sl st – slip stitch
st – stitch
ch – chain
sc2tog – single crochet 2 stitches together

Gauge:

Gauge is not critical for this project – finished tree stands approx. 7” tall

Notes:

Each round will be joined with the sl st to the first st of the round. Be sure not to join in the ch 1. It is easy to count the sl st of the previous row as a st and sc into it, but the sl st should be skipped over. The first sc of each round should go into the sc directly below which will be the same sc you slip stitched into. (Stitch Markers are your friends!)

To close the base of the tree you will be working in a spiral and not joining each round with a slip stitch.
