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."

Free Knitted Christmas Tree Patterns

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.

Tabletop Knitted Tree Patterns

Tabletop trees are truly a delight. Families with particularly rambunctious cats who can't safely own a tree, or families who just want to decorate their mantels with an extra tree or two, will find that these patterns are just the thing they need. Learn how to knit a Christmas tree with the patterns below... but cuter and smaller!

Tree Knitting Patterns for Ornaments

It doesn't get much more meta than knitting a tree for your tree. Other than the cute little joke that you get out of these, they're actually really sweet, fun to knit, and make excellent stocking stuffers for friends and family. These free knitted Christmas tree patterns are all unique enough to justify making one of each, so go nuts.

Gifts With a Knit Tree Pattern

While knitting trees themselves is super fun, even just the motif of a tree can help give something that Christmasy vibe. From dishcloths to hats, these patterns make perfectly festive gifts that friends and family can use for years to come.
