How to knit a Christmas Tree, step by step

Easy, fun and quick to knit, this Christmas Tree is a great pattern for beginners. Knit it to decorate your tree, or as a gift card.

If you can knit and purl, you can do it! And no specific gauge is required ;D It’s a lovely way to use your stash (use whatever you have at home): The thicker the yarn and the bigger the needles, the larger your Christmas Tree is going to be.
