i’m so excited to finally share the pattern for this mid-century macramé inspired crochet wall hanging i made! i have always wanted one of these christmas tree wall hangings but never seemed to come across them thrifting. being the spoiled girl i am, i decided i must have one and would just have to take matters into my own hands! based on a picture of a 1960s knitted tree i found in an old magazine, i recreated the pattern as a crochet project.
i’ve taken out all the trial and error and prepared for you a complete crochet pattern with stitch diagram AND written instructions. i know this seems like a big crochet project, and it will take you some time – but its not really that complex and if you can do basics like chain, single and double crochet – you can do this! the five branches all follow the same series of row patterns so once you’ve made one branch, you’ve pretty much mastered the whole process. Click below to purchase the pattern at a special introductory price!
please note this pattern is written in US crochet terminology but i do include a glossary of stitches and conversions in the instructions.
the materials are only as expensive as you choose them to be: while i usually work with pure wool yarn, i chose acrylic for this project because the thought of a moth chomping through my tree while it was stored for the majority of the year was too much to bear!
i hope you love this pattern – let me know if i’ve missed any important information.
