Part 1- CONE

You will need;

K or L hook for 2 strand trees (my white one) I used an L hook.
5 oz of each color should do it, but have more on hand just in case.

Any size hook for single strand.
I used an I hook.

You need about half a skein for a tree. My skeins are 7 oz.



***While making the cone, join all rounds with a slip stitch in top of beg ch3.***

*** For each round, follow from * to * to finish each round.***

CONE

1. Using a magic ring make the circle, ch 3, 5 dc in ring. Join with sl st in top of ch3. Pull to tighten ring. (6dc)

2. ch3, dc in same st, *1dc in next st, 2 dc in next st* , around.

3. ch3, dc in same st, dc in each of next 2 sts, *2dc in next st, dc in each of next 2 sts* around.

4. ch3, dc in same st, dc in next 3 sts, * 2dc in next st, dc in next 3 sts*, around.

5. dc in each st around.

6. ch3, dc in same st, dc in next 4 sts, * 2dc in next st, dc in next 4 sts* around.

7. ch3, dc in same st, dc in next 5 sts, * 2dc in next st, dc in next 5 sts* around.

8. ch3, dc in same st, dc in next 6 sts, * 2dc in next st, dc in next 6 sts* around.

10. ch3, dc in same st, dc in next 8 sts, * 2dc in next st, dc in next 8 sts* around.

11. dc in each st around.

12. ch3, dc in same st, dc in next 9 sts, * 2dc in next st, dc in next 9 sts* around.

13. ch3, dc in same st, dc in next 10 sts, * 2dc in next st, dc in next 10 sts* around.

14. ch3, dc in same st, dc in next 11 sts, * 2dc in next st, dc in next 11 sts* around.

15. ch3, dc in same st, dc in next 12 sts, * 2dc in next st, dc in next 12 sts* around.
