Try my Christmas Tree Skirt

I have designed a Christmas Tree Skirt that is a hexagon with opportunities to grow to infinity.

In my design, I get you started with a generous size hole space for the middle of the tree. You can use this for real or artificial trees. I have incorporated a slit so you can easily wrap it around the base after the tree is installed.

The trick to this pattern is getting started to establish the first 2 rows. Based on my instructions, you can grow your skirt as large as you need. You can essentially use any colour mixing but you should know that the corner spots have a detail that is only visible on one side of the skirt. This means, every other row, once the beginning is established can have this overlay of the double treble that is happening to make it really interesting.

The tree skirt is a one side pattern it looks different on the back. Here’s what it looks like.

To keep the skirt continually growing, you must be able to identify the gap spaces in the pattern at the corner spots. You will be playing those spaces for the double tree and regular double crochet to ensure the right amount of stitches is applied to make the corners turn properly so it can sit down flat.

I have included a crude crochet diagram that you are welcome to view, download and/or print. View or Print the PDF Here.

Tutorial

 

Mikey, aka Michael Sellick, of The Crochet Crowd, started this online journey back in 2008. A mere hobby in trying to reach out to others as he was mentally struggling with his own issues. His goal was simple, find others in the yarn communities, like him, that have a common interest.

The journey and main baby of the whole idea started with a YouTube Channel and then in 2011, an official website was developed. Michael is not only the face of The Crochet Crowd but also the working engine behind the crowd in self-taught programming, social media and so much more.

Enjoy the stitching journey. Life is short, enjoy this wonderful hobby and all of the learning opportunities that come with it.

    Would it be possible to use this concept to make a cape? How would it have to be modified for the shoulders?

    1. Do you have more specific information? A link perhaps. I don’t know which one you are referring to.

  6. Morgan says:

    I can’t find the difficulty level on this….
    But other than that I love the idea!

  7. Paula Landry says:

    Yaaaaaa! I’ve been looking for a design like this for ages! (with the slit) Will be doing this for sure! Thanks Mikey!! <3
    However, do you have any words of wisdom if I needed that centre hole bigger? Is there a repeating stitch count that I can experiment with? <3 <3 <3 this 🙂

    1. Tory Cook says:

      Paula Landry I think if you increase it like this it would work well.
      when you chain on in the beginning add an extra 6, then when you are going back around where the pattern is 3 double crochet in one spot skip two then do 1 double crochet for three spots…..do 4 not 3 spots, then it would be bigger and not mess up the rows. Does it make sense? Im not the greatest when wording things.
