Pine Trees in the Snow Free Crochet Pattern PDF:
Skill Level: Easy
These pine trees stand approximately 7 inches tall when made with a size 4 hook and worsted weight yarn.
Worsted weight yarn (green, brown, white)
4.0 mm hook
Needle for sewing
Polyester or other stuffing
Stitch marker, safety pin, or small piece of yarn to count rounds
Beads for decorations (optional)
MC = Magic circle
St = Stitch
Sc = Single crochet stitch (double crochet stitch in UK & Australia)
Ss = Slip stitch
Puff = Puff stitch
Rep = Repeat
Inc = Increase
Ch1 = Chain one
BLO = Back loop only
FLO = Front loop only
F/o = Finish off
A note about the magic circle:
Also known as a magic loop or magic ring. If you prefer not to use a magic circle, simply create a slip knot, chain two, and begin by placing your first round of stitches into the first chain. Pull tight on your tail to close the gap and continue with the pattern as written. Once you have worked a few more rows, weave your yarn tail back and forth on the underside to secure your piece and close any remaining gap.
A note about counting stitches:
Using a stitch marker, safety pin, or small piece of yarn to mark the first stitch of each round will help you track your progress. Move the marker as you complete each round.
A note about BLO & FLO:
For the back loop only row, you will work all of your stitches into the back loop of each stitch. For the front loop only row, you will work all of your stitches into the front loop of each stitch. For all other rows, work into both loops of each stitch.
A note about gauge:
The size of your trees will be determined by a number of factors; your hook, the yarn you’ve chosen, and even how tightly or loosely you crochet can significantly change the size of your work.
A note about reading the pattern:
Before beginning a pattern, it helps to read through the abbreviations list. If you need help with a technique, refer to a written or video tutorial, or keep a crochet book handy. Below is a row from the pattern, followed by a detailed description of the instructions.
Rnd 4: 2sc then 2sc in the next st, rep (24)
Beginning round four, add one single crochet into each of the next two stitches. Add two single crochet stitches in the following stitch. Repeat the pattern of one single crochet in each of the next two stitches followed by an increase until you reach the end of round four. There should be 24 stitches in your completed round.
A note about the puff stitch:
To crochet the puff stitch for this pattern, yarn over, insert your hook into the next stitch space, yarn over, pull up a loop, *yarn over, insert hook in same stitch, yarn over, pull up a loop* 3 times (9 loops on hook), yarn over and draw through all loops on hook. Complete each puff stitch with a ch1.
