We have 3 sizes of Crochet Classic Granny Christmas Tree Skirts from 4″, 6″ and 8″ openings. Complete with crochet diagrams and written instructions. I originally designed one of these back in 2009 but not having a website or the ability to draw the diagrams at the time, it became part of my home decor for Christmas. The original was pink and purple.

Since 2009, the yarn has come a long way and long self-striping has become a staple. For 2021, I am reviving my old pattern with a fresh yarn take. Also, in 2021, I know that people want choices. So I have designed 3 sizes to accommodate most crocheters.

The Christmas tree skirt finishes the look of a Christmas tree. The opening is especially important in the middle for living trees that require water, you need more space to access the holding pot to refresh with water. For the artificial trees, you may just want a 4″ opening.

Final sizing is really up to you. You can go as big as you need or stop whenever you feel like it. You are seeing the skirt here at 40″ x 40″. Skirts for larger trees can be up to 55″ inches but, of course, your space will make the difference.

With the Crochet Boho Ornament Afghan, you will have yarn leftover. So why not pair a Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt with your afghan. Also, if you have spare yarn, this really hits the basket beautifully. You will be able to randomly put your crochet Christmas skirt together using the same balls from your Boho Ornament Afghan.

This version is really generous with a wide opening in the middle of 46″ diameter. It’s much bigger than I imagined.

Caron Big Donut, 9.9 oz/280 g, 502 yds/459 m

  1. Raspberry Glaze – 1 Ball
  2. Lemon Plum – 1 Ball

I used Raspberry Glaze to start and crocheted the complete O’go from one end to the other and switched over to Lemon Plum when it ran out. I stopped when I couldn’t go any further. If I wanted it bigger, I would need a 3rd or 4th O’go.

Size

Measurement is 40″ x 40″ [101.5 x 101.5 cm] using 2 O’gos and doing 8″ opening. You can change the size by stopping when you feel it’s big enough.

Gauge is 13 sc x 14 rows = 4″ [10 cm].

The hook is 5 mm / H/8.


Tips for Understanding Christmas Tree Skirt

  1. There is always an odd number of shells on the sides such as 1, 3, or 5. This keeps the seamline exactly in the middle of the skirt.
  2. The skirt can be stopped at any time. You can customize the skirt to fit your space instead of what we believe it should be.
  3. There is a repeat of 2 rows to make this happen. It’s easy to look at the project in your hands to determine which row you are on.
  4. The multiple to increase the size is 32 chains.
  5. When starting, the centre will look smaller than what it ends up being because you are going to slightly stretch the project as you crochet it. Originally, the 8″ version was my 6″ version but realized it had stretched. So I altered the pattern to match.
