This is a cute Christmas Tree. You can add beads etc to it, if you wish. It will stand alone or you can use a cone from cotton yarn or a buy one at a craft store. There are patterns on the internet for small stars. You can crochet a star or put a large star button on the top.
I use Vanna's Choice 100% acrylic in Dusty Green.
For the star I used a scrap of Caron gold yarn.
Tree is 7 inches tall and star was 1" tall. Tree is 3" across center of bottom or 4 3/4' around the circle
Because you change hook sizes, no gauge is given.
Stitch information is listed in the pattern. Also for easy instructions to do crocodile stitch, see www.youtube.com. I used the site:
