Perfect Slippers – Houndstooth {free pattern}

We all need quick projects for gifts. Especially for Christmas and this is the time of year we need to start those homemade gifts. How about making a pair of the Houndstooth Slippers?

I had so much fun designing these slippers for Christmas Gifts. The pattern works up quick and can easily be adjusted for any foot size, plus, check out the beautiful stitchwork. The color changing rows and alternating stitches creates a houndstooth pattern.

O’ Christmas Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern

Before we know it, the time will be here to set up our Christmas Tree and begin our holiday traditions. For the Tree is one of my favorite parts. Every year we give out kids ornaments that symbolize something important in the last year. We then take turns decorating the tree with the finishing touches being the angel on top and the O’Christmas Tree Skirt.

The O’Christmas Tree skirt was designed to fit my own homes style. A little classy but down home and simple. Made in traditional colors of red and white with some texture, some cables and an elegant touch make this one of my favorite holiday designs yet.

Designing the O’Christmas Tree Skirt

My first consideration when designing a tree skirt is that so many cover up the detailed design whether it is by placing gift under the tree or by the tree itself.

My solution was to make the center of the tree skirt pretty basic and make the details really stand out along the edge. I focused on color changes, cables and of course a row that looks like little poms to really add that extra touch of cheer.

O'Christmas Tree Skirt

The tree skirt is designed in sectioned pieces, not as one big crochet piece. Each “pie shape” is made individually. After all the pieces are made they are stitched together with a hook, no need for difficult needle seaming.

The O’Christmas Tree Skirt was originally released in a crochet along format. Some of them turned out amazing, even in the non-traditional colors. Here are a few samples that the participants were so gracious to allow me to share with all of you.

Aren’t these amazing? The above photos show a small sample of the finished tree skirts. The color combinations are endless in this classic design. The best part of this CAL was that it was mystery. No one knew what their tree skirt would turn out to look like and they all did such an amazing job.
