The stitches used in the pattern are shown below. As always with any Crochet project, it’s important to check your gauge – it should be stitches + 14 rows = 4 in. (10 cm) over pattern stitches. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make a 4 in. [10 cm] square, try using a smaller size hook or if you need more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook.
We’ve added a guide to measuring gauge and other crochet tips below. Be sure to save the above chart from Fresh Stitches, it will come in handy for all your crochet patterns.
The pattern starts by working the Trees in multiples of 48 stitches. It’s well laid out and easy to follow with step by step instructions plus stitch diagrams and charts.
