Pull marker out, slst, cut the yarn, leaving a 5″(15cm) tail and finish the round in an invisible needle join: pull the end of yarn through the last stitch and thread it into a needle, skip one stitch and insert the needle into both loops of the next stitch as shown on Photo 2. Go back into the back loop only of the same stitch where the yarn comes from (Photo 3). Tighten it just enough so that the join looks like a regular stitch (Photo 4). Weave in the end.
Alternate green, dark green and white yarn colors for leaves.
Round 1: return to the remaining front loops of the 36th Rnd, insert your hook into front loop of the 1st st (Photo 5) and crochet in this loop * Ch2 (Photo 6), 2 Dc, Ch2 (Photo 7), 1 slst into the 1st ch of the ch2 (picot), 2 Dc (Photo 8), 1 slst (Photo 9), then crochet slst into the next 2 front loops. Crochet from * to the end of the round (Photo 11).
Crochet leaves in the same way in all remaining front loops. Ready (Photo 12 and 13)

Crochet the second detail in the same way but do not cut the yarn (Photo 14).
If you want the tree to stand more confidently take a piece of cardboard, place the finished bottom onto the cardboard and outline around it. Cut around the outline (Photo 15).
Start to join 2 details with a slip stitch seaming: hold the two crochet pieces so that the wrong sides are facing each other, * insert your hook, front to back, through the next stitch on the detail closest to you. Continue inserting the hook all the way through the matching stitch on the second detail (Photo 16). Yarn over and pull the yarn through theese stitches (Photo 17) and through the loop on your hook in one go.
That’s your first slip stitch (Photo 18). Repeat from * to end of seam, place the cutted cardboard (Photo 19 ) before finishing.
Pull marker out, cut the yarn, leaving a 5″(15cm) tail and finish the round in an invisible needle join as described above.
Stuff the tree with stuffing material.
Join the tree and the bottom as shown on Photos 23 and 24. Be sure to add all of the needed stuffing before finishing.
