  1. How many rows will there be for the inner section? I need to determine when to stop in order to create a smaller skirt. Thank you. Just about finished with the first 20 rows. What fun!!

  2. Is there a way to get a picture of the whole skirt without the tree in the way? I just wanted to see the entire thing.

  3. Lovely! I worked this up while at work and I am LOVING how its coming along! i found my new Friday tradition (for the next 6 weeks at least haha)

  4. If I wanted to use three colors (off white, red and green), when would you suggest color changes? I was thinking – off white for beginning , then switch to red for lemon peel, followed by off white for the stripe and lastly green for the last section.

  5. Hi there
    I’m not sure what the buttons are for? Also, on the picture I can see a round skirt, but we don’t work in rounds?

    Perhaps I’m missing something, since I’m dansish, and I’m used to things look a bit different up here😄
    Greatings from Denmark, Lisbeth 😊

  6. I have wanted to crochet a Christmas tree skirt for years and when I would start to look for patterns, I could never decide which one to make. This one came up from the CAL on facebook and that lots of people are following and I was like…. It is a sign. This is the one I am meant to make for my home and just in time too! I am about to finish the first part and so far so good. Was a bit nervous with the change of stitch and almost thought I was not going to be able to follow it but here I am! Love the pattern and can’t wait to show it off this Christmas!

  7. I will be making mine smaller and would like to size it down to around +/- 36″. You mentioned to do this, you’d reduce the inner part we’re working on now. What row would you suggest be my last of the inner section to accomplish this reduction in size? Thank you very much!

    1. I never got a reply to this. Is anyone else reducing the size of theirs? How much smaller are you making yours and have your figured out when you’re going to complete the inner part? I want to reduce mine down by 12 to 15 inches. When I start doing the math, my head gets all fuzzy but Im thinking of maybe stopping after the buttonhole on row 25? Any input would be appreciated! Thanks!

      1. Hi! The basketweave section adds about 20 inches to the diameter. You can stop the inner section when it’s about 20 inches shorter than your desired diameter. Hope this helps 🙂

  8. Hi! On row 8, it says to sc in 1st, dc in next, then follow the sc,dc pattern for a total of 17 before doing the dc,sc,dc in one stitch. Do the 1st and second sc and dc count in the 17, or do we do the sc, dc, plus 17 more, for a total of 19 stitches before doing the dc,sc,dc in one? I have done the row over both ways and can’t seem to get the stitch count right even though I started with the correct number of stitches in the row before. Thank you so much!

  9. Hi there I’m struggling with row 8. Row 7 gives me the right stitches but row 8 I’m struggling with please help. I’ve also bought the pattern on ravelry but can’t download it as it says file missing.
