Being up in the mountains with the fresh scent of pine trees is one of my favorite places to be. I love adding pine trees to my crochet projects to give them a rustic style that brings me a bit closer to the mountains that I love. Now you can capture that too, with my latest free intarsia crochet stitch pattern: the Pine Tree Stitch! This textured crochet stitch pattern, uses easy front post stitches to create a pine tree on any crochet pattern you’d like. It’s perfect for crochet garments, home decor, or accessories!
When I was first learning how to do crochet color work, I often felt so lost having to learn how to do color changes and reading crochet graphs. It can seem so intimidating to learn a new crochet skill! If you’re new to tapestry crochet or color work, then I’ve got just the resource for you.
Here on my blog, I’ve got a two free crochet tutorial for how to do tapestry crochet and intarsia crochet, which are the two most common crochet color work techniques. They’ll walk you through what each technique is, how to read crochet graphs, how to change colors in crochet, and a bunch of other tips I have for color work! You can find them here on my blog at:
– The Beginner’s Guide to Tapestry Crochet: (This technique is used when you would like to carry your yarn, and the color work is close together.)
– The Beginner’s Guide to Intarsia Crochet:This technique is used when you don’t want to carry your yarn, and instead would like to use yarn bobbins. I used this technique for the pine tree stitch.)
I’ve also created a step by step video tutorial for this stitch pattern, available on my Youtube channel at: Pine Tree Stitch Crochet Tutorial.
