The Starshine Christmas Tree Skirt is remake of the Starshine Hugs & Kisses Blanket Pattern. So it’s a design you may already know and love, minus the bobbles.

This is my first every tree skirt design.  I was inspired by the new Red Heart Super Saver O’Go Christmas yarn.  Of course, you can use your favorite yarns and colors to create your own personalized project.  My tree is a bit small, so if you would like to make yours bigger, just continue to repeat the 28th to 31st rounds until you have the size you need.

Mikey’s version in the tutorial was using Red Heart Roll With It Melange. Colour is called Gossip. You will need two balls of that if you wish to substitute. Mikey did 19 rnds and then the border. His size was 28″ [70 cm] across tips.

    How can I adapt the Starshine Hugs & Kisses blanket to be like the tree skirt (with No bobbles). I personally do not like bobbles. I don’t mind a little texture, but not the big nubbie type. That’s just me, I guess.
    Thank You so much for sharing your talents we me. I have learned a great deal over the years that I have been watching your videos.
    Thank You again……. Myra

    • Leave it with us. It will need a redesign due to spacing that the bobbles creates. We will try to revisit in 2022. I’m sorry. It has to be redone and tested.

    Hi there! All the o-go’s I’m finding are 7oz with a 5.5mm recommended hook size. Is this the same yarn and your just using a half hook size up? Thanks!

    • Yes, the label is recommended but each designer has their option for how it will sit in the project.
