Christmas pearl tree - free amigurumi pattern


A mini decor for Christmas crocheted with beads and crochet thread. It's a pine tree but I think pearl tree is a better name.

From the last back-loop stitch of round 15, join your crochet thread with sc, crochet 1hdc, 1dc, 1hdc into next st.
* Sc into next st, ( 1hdc, 1dc, 1hdc ) into next st* repeat ** 'till end.
Randomly pull a bead and close it with sc while you crochet the ruffles



Dispart the beads around the tree. Attach a star or a big bead on  top. ( Fasten off, weave in end )
