FREE Mini Christmas Tree Knitting Pattern

Enjoy this Lovely FREE Mini Christmas Tree Knitting Pattern.  This cute tree is made with oddments of white and green double knitting yarn, 3mm single pointed needles. Although any yarn and needles will work.   It is about 9cm tall when finished. Made in 3 pieces and slotted together, no toy stuffing is needed.

You could add a loop and hang as an ornament or add it to your Christmas lunch table as a treat for your family. Sit it on a shelf after adding ribbon and beads as you prefer.

For those mathematically minded, you may notice a pattern in the numbers, then you will see it will be easy to add more tiers to the bottom and make your tree taller. I will leave that up to you to work out for fun.
