Little amigurumi tree
Free pattern © Mari-Liis Lille
DIY little amigurumi tree using a free pattern of mine. A crochet tree has lots of advantages. It`s a lovely home decoration, needs no care, suits both children and adults, men and women. It`s a nice and easy to make gift.
The magic tree was originally created as a gift for my little baby niece. In my thoughts it was a tree of wishes, hopes and dreams.
The pattern is in easy skill level. You only need single crochet, and there`s no sewing at all! Plus, you`ll have loads of fun with decorating the tree.
You can purchase an inexpensive downloadable PDF pattern with step-by-step photos to guide you through the process.
