- ch: chain
- sc: single crochet
- hdc: half double crochet

- Start with a magic ring or ch 2.
- Work a certain number of sc stitches into the magic ring or second ch, then join with a sl st to form a circle.
- Begin crocheting in the round. Each round should have an increasing number of stitches to create the widening shape of the tree.
- Continue working rounds until your tree reaches the desired height. Remember to stuff the tree as you go, making sure it’s evenly filled.
- For the last round, you can work a round of sl st to create a clean edge.
- Crochet small shapes like stars, hearts, or baubles in various colors. These can be made using simple stitches like sc, hdc, or dc.
- Attach the decorations to the tree using a yarn needle and the same color yarn or a contrasting color.
- You can also add beads, buttons, or sequins to enhance the festive look.
- To create the trunk, choose a brown yarn and crochet a rectangle or cylinder that’s slightly wider than the base of the tree.
- Attach the trunk to the bottom of the tree using a yarn needle.
- Weave in any loose ends using a yarn needle.
- If desired, attach a loop of yarn or ribbon at the top of the tree for hanging.
