Tree

Stump
Using G hook

Row 2: Sc in same, sc in next. Ch1, turn.
Row 3: Sc in same, sc in next.
Fasten off leaving long enough tail to attach to tree.


Garland
Using H Hook

Join near the bottom right corner of the tree with desired garland color. Sl st across to the other side, repeat two more times to get to the top of the tree.
Fasten off.


Ornaments
Using G Hook

Magic circle, ch 1, 5 sc in circle, pull circle tight & join.
Fasten off.


Star
Using G Hook

Magic circle, ch 1, *hdc, sl st into circle.* Repeat *to* 4 more times.
Fasten off with out joining, pull circle tight. Tie the two loose ends together and tie onto tree. I also use the end to make an ornament hanger but you can attach a new piece of yarn when you are completely finished for hanging your tree as an ornament.

If you are using your tree as an ornament I suggest making a 2nd tree and sewing the two together after adding the ornaments and garland so that there is no need to sew in all those ends from the little ornaments.
