Crochet Dinosaur Series – Trees

We finish off the accessories to enhance your playmats environment this week, by adding some trees from the Crochet Dinosaur Series. 

Palm Tree

The trees are worked in three separate parts, small leaves in light green, large leaves in dark green and trucks worked in either dark or light brown.   The trunks, like the volcano, make use of post stitches to create the bark like texture.  Whilst both the leaves are worked in one continuous round in both sides of a chain.   The leaves are then sewn on to the trunk at the end, starting with the larger leaves and then the smaller ones in between the larger leaves.

I made 4 Trees, mostly because that was all the brown yarn I had, and also as I didn’t want to use more than 1 ball of each colour in the playmat.  However, I think given the size of the playmat, any more trees would have made it just too crowded.   If you want however, you can vary the amount of trees you make.

I hope you enjoy finishing off the playmat with tree this week.   Next week finishes the Crochet Dinosaur Series by making a storage bag for you to keep everything in.
