Level 2 – easy
Since time immemorial, the tree has been a symbol of fertility and renewal. Ancestral traditions consisted of cutting trees in order to decorate them or to leave presents under. The Christmas tree did not exist as such until Christianity adopted and changed those pagan traditions. Legend states that it was Bonifacio the missionary, in the German region of Hesse, in the VII century, who chopped down an oak where local people made sacrifices during winter solstice. He offered a fir tree instead that represented eternal life, because its leaves are always green and its treetop points to heaven.

Stitches and Techniques used (U.S. terminology)
YO and pull through loop on hook.
Skip stitch (abbrev. sl st)
Insert hook in stitch, YO and pull through both loops on hook at once.
Through back loop (abbrev. tbl)
The back loop is furthest away from you.
Crocheting into the back bump of a chain
