Though we are using light worsted or DK weight yarn to make this 4″ tall crochet Christmas tree, however, you can use whatever yarn you prefer. Just keep in mind to size up or size down your crochet hook to suit your yarn weight. By using different weights of yarn, you should expect to produce different sizes of crochet Christmas trees as well.
