Chunky Granny Square Christmas Tree Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs


























My Mother in Law had one of these trees hanging in her
 home every year at Christmas. She would hang it up in the hallway, then string a piece of the yarn down the hall, on both 
sides. She would hang all the Christmas cards they would receive on that yarn string. It looked wonderful. 

I would look at it year after year and say to myself,
 "I am going to make one of these on day". Her tree was made
 out of Rug yarn that was chunky, I wanted to keep the 
chunky look of the rug yarn, but I also wanted some Sparkle.
 I chose to make mine out of I Love This Yarn from Hobby Lobby in Sparkle using 2 strands.
I am so pleased with my Granny Square Tree and
 it brings back sweet memories of Christmas at my
 Mother in Law's home.
