I just had to make this...
...after I spied this
The dear 93yr. old woman that I take care of had this in her stash of Christmas decorations & when I saw it, I was like 'hey, this is crochet!"
Anything that is crochet
& anything that is vintage & crochet
& then anything that is vintage, crochet & Christmas-y!?...
More than fabulous!
So I started thinking that this would be so easy to make.
...in varying sizes.
Green granny squares with a white edge.
The original tree had 6 granny squares so that's what I made.
From largest to smallest.
And then it's just a simple flip of the bottom edge to form the boughs of the fir tree.
Time to embellish.
I tied the ornaments right through each bough of the tree to attach & keep the tree together.
And crocheted a nice, chunky, brown trunk with just simple rows of dc stitched in the back loop only to give it some texture.
A remake of something so vintage-y.
And speaking of vintage -- I thought this was soooooo cute & my kids thought it was more than weird -- I also spied this at Ruth's house on the shelf in her bathroom...
Yes. That is her knitting that she is doing.
