This is the last part of the Christmas Tree Hat Scarf Crochet Along which is sponsored by DMC yarns. Today’s pattern is all about decorating the Christmas Tree Hat Scarf with ornaments and lights. This crochet pattern really is super easy and fun to make.
During this part you will make lots and lots of ornaments. All of my ornaments are the same pattern, but feel free to add additional ones or to change the colors of the ornaments. And of course we will also make the star for the top of the Christmas Tree Hat Scarf.
I really hope you enjoy making this pattern as much as I did creating it. It is such a silly idea and fits perfect for anyone who loves Ugly Christmas Sweaters.
Last week we made the Christmas Tree Hat Scarf itself which you probably noticed was very easy to make. As you can see on the picture below, I added some additional lights that are connected to a battery pack. That is completely optional and does not have to be added.
Be sure you join my Facebook Group so we can show off our creations as we make them and when they are finished as well as get help anytime you need it. Please also add the pattern to your Ravelry Favorites.

The pattern will be available for free on my website at all times. However, if you feel like you rather want to have the pdf for it, then you can click below and purchase the pdf for a small fee on either Ravelry or Etsy.
Let’s get started with part 2 of the Christmas Tree Hat Scarf.
- DMC Natura XL Yarn which is super bulky 100% cotton yarn (the colors are mentioned as number on their website, which I provided names for as guidance)
9 dc x 4 rows = 3 square inches
Stitches used, in US terms:
- sc = single crochet
- dc = double crochet
- hdc = half double crochet
- hdc in BLO = half double crochet in back loop only
- sl st = slip stitch
- ch = chain
All starting chains are not counted and the first stitch of every round or row goes into the same stitch as the starting chain.
I used 4 different colors for the ornaments, but the pattern is the same for each.
Make 10 circles of each of these colors: 05, 06, 42, 92
Make a magic ring and place 12 dc’s inside, pull the ring tide, and sl st to the first st.
Fasten off. Don’t weave in the ends yet as you will use the ends to attach the ornaments to the hat scarf.
Star for the top of the Christmas Tree Hat Scarf:
Use the color 92
Make 2 stars
Round 1: Make a magic ring and plus 5 times this repeat inside the circle before pulling tide: 2 dc’s, ch 1
Then sl st to the first st.
Round 2: *Ch 5, 1 sc in the 2nd ch from the hook, 1 hdc in the next, 1dc in the next 2 chs, sl st to the next chain space you created in round 1, repeat from * 4 more times
Once you have both stars, sew them together so they become thicker and sew the star to the tip of the Christmas Tree Hat Scarf.
Use the color 09
Use the surface slip stitch as far as you can (due to the hat scarf getting thinner at the tip). Crochet the surface slip stitch in spirals all around the Christmas Tree Hat Scarf evenly.
Once you can do the surface slip stitch anymore, use a tapestry needle to finish it up at the tip using the same stitch just made with a tapestry needle.
Attaching the ornaments
I used hot glue to make it easier and faster, but you can sew them on as well.
First use your hook and pull one of the ends of the ornament thru and tie the ends. Cut off as much as possible and hot glue the ends and the ornament to the Hat Scarf.
Optional battery-operated LED lights
I added some light to mine by tying them to the inside of my hat scarf and letting the lights poke thru the Christmas Tree Hat Scarf.
I hope you saw how easy this pattern is. Please make sure you share a link to it on social media. Thank you!
