21 Free Knitted Christmas Tree Patterns
These Christmas tree knitting patterns will get you in a festive mood faster than you can say "jingle bells."
For many a person, putting up the tree is what makes the holiday season real. Whether it's sixty degrees outside or Thanksgiving is still more than three weeks away, when you plug in the string lights and watch the tree come to life in a flurry of gently blinking lights, it's impossible for it to not feel like Christmas. No matter how your Christmas traditions differ from your neighbors', you probably have a tree in common, and you probably admire their tree when you stop by.
While knit Christmas trees can't replace full-sized trees (unless you're a REALLY dedicated knitter), they can certainly help to emulate some of that holiday joy in the parts of your house where you don't (or can't) have a tree. These free knitted Christmas tree patterns encompass everything from mini knitted tree patterns to tree motifs that you can gift to family and friends.
