Crochet Fir Tree – Extra Help

Crochet Fir Tree – Extra Help


So as I said the small size is all written here. So you just start off with the very first one here band number one. It says chain 24. So this is the largest size band and number 2, 3 so you start off at the base and work your way all the way to the top. So you can flip the page and then you’re gonna finish. So you’re gonna see that the, topper here the small size has nine bands and then there’s a topper so it takes ten motifs in order to do it. Now when you’re going to do the next one, the medium tree says work bands and topper with ‘B’. So that is just a color like that ‘B’ means the color. So it says band one starts at chain 34, band two chain 32 and I’m gonna get further into these instructions. But you see that you just follow it as you go. But once you get here after band number six band number um, seven and all the way to the end it says work bands two through nine with the small tree. So then all you just have to go is to go back to number two of the small tree and then go all the way through it and then all the way to number nine and then that, and then it says to do the topper. So you can see how the medium and the large size or sorry the medium and the small size are working together. Now when it comes to the large that’s a completely different monster because you’re going to be mixing up everything within the small and medium size in order to get it. So I have written my notes here just for my own um, own convenience. I’m gonna get further into these instructions but as I said, so the large tree says work the band one as the medium tree. So that’s what we’re gonna follow. So band two and three it says this is it. So bands two or three is exactly this twice. So you need to make two of these. Bands four and five is exactly two of these. Then band six and then says band seven and eight here work as band five and six so seven will equal five, eight will equal six of the medium size and then continuing up. Band nine and ten work the same as bands two and three on the small tree and then band eleven has been written out because it’s an incremental size its not already been provided and then band number twelve worked the band four of the small tree and then band 13 is written out and band 14, 15 and et cetera. So you can see that you need all of these instructions in order to get it. So it’s using the mix of the large size. It’s mixed, it’s mixing up the smalls and the mediums so that you can get a nice taller tree here in a more even way by mixing it all up. I don’t know how did the designer actually did this kind of —— and kept her, kept her head straight on. But it works out really quite beautifully. So you’re gonna notice that you’ll have all these motifs in a circle. So let’s talk about that when we’re, when we get there. So the trick for you is that you’re gonna wanna keep the bands in order. So I kept them in order so when, I did the largest one, I started the big uh, the medium on here band and that I started and then I just followed it through. So when I was finished one, I would stack it up on top of it so that it would not stay uh, get out of order because once it gets to a certain size it’s kind of hard to tell who’s who. So once you’re satisfied with that and depending on the size cone that you’re working on all you’re just going to do is you take these motifs and you slide it down the cone and when you slide it down you’re gonna notice there’s a bit of friction to it. So then you go. You don’t wanna jam it all the way down you just wanna kinda rest it and see where it’s gonna naturally go because if you push it down too far you might end up with a gapping space right at the top. So just be patient with that and you’re gonna notice that it’s gonna get really quite pretty. So the second last one is just gonna sit right on top of this and then the last one is right on top and you’re just gonna use a pin a straight pin in order to hold those down or you can use some hot glue if you’re feeling very adventurous. So let me take you to an example here of the, one of these and I’m just gonna take apart my tree. So here’s my tree lighting down. So you can just see I wanna keep these in order. So I can just, I haven’t pinned them yet and each one of these is separate. So the one and two, we’re just sitting on the top and then you can see that the next one is just slid over. So it ends up with all these little round motifs with a hole in the middle and you can keep on going. So the major difference between these is the actual instructions for how it’s growing. And what I’m gonna do is I’m gonna dive heavier into that next. So let me show you exactly what you’re gonna be looking for to, to be the difference. So rows number, round one and two are usually the same as each other. So the only difference is is that you’ll see that there’s a band number change. So it’s chaining 32 in this one and then you’re going to notice that you’re going to put one single crochet in each of the chains and then in the next one number two is one single crochet in each. That’s pretty much consistent for most of them. Just keep an eye on that until you get to the right to the top. What you want to look for is a number three, there’s a growth round. This changes per, per one that you’re doing. So in this case it says chain one, single crochet in the first four stitches, two single crochet in the next and it’s asking you to repeat that all the way around and in this case it doesn’t go all the way around it says single crochet in the last two stitches. This is what you’re looking for in order to do the growth. Now because this one has six rounds and it’s one of the biggest ones round four and five are the same thing as far as slip stitching in order to create these chain two spaces that gives it a bit of a ruffle look and then finally the final one here is pretty much consistent for most of them and but it does get smaller. So the final round is one single crochet, chain four, one single crochet in each of the chain two spaces. As these motifs get smaller and smaller this will change to single crochet, chain three, single crochet and then eventually single crochet, chain two, single crochet. So you wanna keep an eye on this. So I put a note to myself when I was working on this the rounds four and five one it’s a really big one here like a six is pretty much the same. So it’s kind of a slip stitching here. But let me flip the page and keep on showing you some other stuff. So as these motifs get smaller and smaller as you’re working the way up the cone you’re going to notice that round six is missing. And what I made a mistake on the very first time I did one of these is that I made two rows of the slip stitching like I had seen in six rounds like that when I was bigger. So you wanna keep an eye that you’re only gonna see one row of slip stitching in order to do it. You’re also keeping an eye on the number of growth that you have here. And then the end here this is a fifth round it’s single crochet, chain four, single crochet. So again, you see that these change as the band’s get smaller. So five and six when you’re working on it and again round number four is the slip stitching line in order to keep the growth. Let’s keep flipped in the page. So as it gets smaller and smaller you, you see that there is only gonna be four rounds as it gets a smaller and smaller closer to the top. Again, the growth is different here and then you’re just seeing it like this band here is this instruction. Band number 12 you flip the page to band number 4 the small tree to get that information. Band 13 has been written and then band 14 and 15 is the same as 5 and 6 of the small tree. So you’re just keeping an eye as you’re working your way all the way. So eventually you’re gonna come very close to the top and it says work then the bands 17, 18 and 19 the same as 7, 8, 9 which is the very top and then the topper of the small tree which is pretty much this when you get there. So you have to follow these instructions because if I was to film all of the different sizes here I would have to film literally probably about thirty-some odd different motifs but they’re so close to each other and the only difference really is in chain number 3 and whether how many the um, circles that you’re going to do and of course the starting is gonna be different as well. So I’m gonna show you how to do one of the largest ones so that you can understand to follow through and where we’re just gonna pick a band. I’m just gonna do what are the largest ones here and I’m gonna do one with this ,around 6, which is gonna be the large top one here which is gonna be the chain 32. So I’ll demonstrate that with on camera and then this is the pretty much how you’re gonna do it for the most of it. So you just grab your sheet and just follow through and what I would probably recommend is just highlighting. So I highlighted when I needed to move around so I just kind of went through it with my my pen and I just pointed to where I needed to go so to help me out. So sorry. I’m being a little bit long-winded. So that’s try the large tree bands number two and three which is the same band, but I’m just gonna demonstrate at one time. 🌲
