Hi! Thank you so much for your interest in joining the Country Christmas Tree Skirt Crochet Along! The Country Christmas Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern is a beautifully textured tree skirt that will be treasured for years to come.
What is a Crochet Along?
A crochet along is when we work on a project all together at the same time. It’s a great way to have fun with fellow crocheters all over the world!
Be sure to join my Facebook group HERE for the lastest details, to ask questions, share your work, and talk with fellow crocheters!
We will work on the Country Christmas Tree Skirt over the course of 6 weeks. There are 2 main sections to this tree skirt and each will take about 3 weeks.
Each week a new part of the pattern will be posted. It will be posted on Friday’s at 6 AM PST until Nov 2, then I will be posting at 6 AM MST for the remaining weeks (we don’t change our clocks in AZ 🙂 ). I’ll have a that week’s part of the pattern available for FREE on my blog, OR you will be able to purchase the full PDF in my shops (if you would rather have the pattern as one full document).
Purchase the ad-free, printable PDF in my Etsy Shop or Ravelry Shop

· This tree skirt is made from the center out in turned rows. The rows increase to make the circular shape. The first section uses the lemon peel stitch and the outer section is the basket weave stitch.
· The basketweave (outer) section works up tighter than the lemon peel (inner) section. This will lead to some bunching in the inner section, but (for me) it lays nicely over the tree stand. To help lessen the amount of bunching a larger hook for the outer section can be used.
· The buttons are optional. If no buttons are desired, simply skip making the button holes. It’s indicated in the pattern when to do this.
Approx finished size:
Outer diameter: 49″
Inner diameter: 6.5″
Get your yarn ready & we’ll get started on October 15th!
