Pictured above are a couple of squares I crocheted and stitched using my free Christmas tree pattern and charts.

I’ve found this pattern to be more versatile than I originally thought it would be. You could, of course, use it for making Christmas projects if you like — but you aren’t limited to only making Christmas-themed items with this pattern.

Want to see what I mean? OK, let’s take a look at a couple of different ways I’ve incorporated this design into some actual crochet projects.

This baby blanket incorporates the pine tree design, along with many other different square designs. Overall, the design incorporates bunches of checkerboard patterns, and the theme is bold, graphic and geometric; it’s not really “Christmas-y” at all. I think we could all agree that this design could be used well after the holiday season has passed. Yes?

A Christmas Crochet Blanket Design, Which Incorporates This Square Plus Checkerboard Afghan Squares


This afghan features a Christmas theme, thanks to the combination of Christmas-tree-style motifs and the colors used. Although it would be possible to use this design after the holiday season, to me it does clearly look like a holiday pattern.


So you see, this design could go either way — Christmas-y, or not. And there are soooo many other ways you could use the same designs, and the same squares.

Want to give this pattern a try? You can grab the free charts here; they are posted below. The free afghan patterns are also available online, if you’d like to crochet either of these afghans as pictured. There’s also a matching Christmas tree pillow design if you would like to make a coordinating set.

How to Make These Squares:

First, crochet chart #1, below, using the tapestry crochet technique.

After you’ve finished working the square, change colors and work a round of slip stitch all the way around the outer edge of the piece.

Then change colors and work another round of slip stitch around the edge.


Here’s an Example of How It Should Look at This Point:

If you scroll back up to the previous picture and compare it against this one, you’ll notice something interesting: there are some really jagged edges where the green yarn used for the Christmas tree and the background color touch each other. Those jagged areas can easily be smoothed out with a round of surface crochet slip stitches.
