Christmas Tree Ornament – Free Crochet Pattern

Ferdinand, the Fir Tree

Ferdinand, the fir tree makes a cheery addition to your Christmas decorations! Hang him in your Christmas tree or elsewhere and let him spread some festive cheer.

This is an Amigurumi crochet pattern ideal for improving or practised crocheters. But don’t be discouraged if you are a beginner. You can learn the stitches and techniques you need to know to crochet Ferdinand in no time. You will need to single crochet (or double crochet as it is called in British terms), make a magic ring, and make an invisible decrease. You can learn all of these right here on the blog, or on my Youtube channel.

This pattern is written in U.S. terminology. If you are used to British or Australian terms simply replace sc (single crochet) with dc (double crochet).
