I am happy to offer this quick and easy pattern to you here for free! But, if you’d prefer, you can add this to your Ravelry account in an ad-free, printable PDF file for a small fee! If you don’t use Ravelry, you can also buy it directly from me on here (this requires me to manually email you in response, so please give me a few hours to respond).
You can do whatever you want with these cute trees. You can string them up like garland, double them up and glue them onto a stick, or sew them onto a blanket.
In the picture above, the white tree is actually 2 trees that I joined together using a single crochet border. I put 2 single crochets in the stitches at the tips of the branches and did a decrease stitch in the tiny corners under the branches. I left a hole in the bottom because I had planned on putting a wooden dowel inside. The dowel I had on hand wasn’t big enough so I scrapped that idea for the pictures.
These are great for stash busting because each tree only uses about 10 grams of yarn!

Stitch count (#) is at the end of each row. Slip stitches are not included in the stitch counts. The “Ch 3” does count as a stitch. The “Ch 4” in the first row counts as 1 stitch.

or Ch 4 and put 10 dc in the 4th chain from the hook (11)
R2: Ch 3, turn, dc in very first space, then dc x4, 5 dc in next stitch, then dc x5 (16)
R3: Ch 3, turn, dc in very first space, then dc x6, 5 dc in next stitch, dc x8 (21)
R4: Ch 3, turn, dc in very first space, dc x9, 5 dc in next stitch, dc x10, add a second dc in last stitch (27)
