A Crochet Granny Square Christmas Tree
This project has been a long time in the making. My deepest thanks to my daughter, Stephanie, for contributing the yarn for this. Without her help and encouragement, this would never have been possible.
I made the tree square by square, with over a hundred individual squares. They were attached using an invisible join that I last used on a baby blanket back in 1993. I don’t do a lot with granny squares, simply because I hate weaving in those hundreds of ends. All that aside, this project turned out quite well. I even made a little star topper for it. It’s my favorite part.
A few notes on this: Make sure to put the lights up under the frame before you stitch on the squares. Otherwise, you’ll have to borrow a small child to get them up under there. Also, you should constantly check the fit to make sure you aren’t pulling the squares too tight and deforming them.
If you would like the instructions for this tree, hop on over to my shop. It includes notes on how I made the frame, diagrams for layout and attachment, and instructions for the star topper. You still have time to complete it before Christmas arrives.
