Christmas Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern Round Up

With the holidays quickly approaching so many of us are thinking of what to crochet to make this year stand out. A few years ago I designed a tree skirt pattern and now it is my favorite thing to put out at Christmas. It sets the mood before the gifts are piled under the tree and is there with happy memories once they are all opened.

A handmade Tree Skirt is something that I know will be handed down in my family and will bring back so many memories. I know this, because I still love seeing the one I grew up with under my parents tree when I visit each year. I know when my kids grow up and leave my home (sniff, sniff, it will be here before I’m ready), I will make one for them their first year in their own home… because I am keeping mine-LOL!

Christmas Tree Skirt Styles

Tree skirts can be all different designs, shapes and colors. But, they all set the mood for your holiday decor. I rounded up some of my favorite designs, even my daughter helped me pick these out.

Some tree skirts remind me of older generations, some remind me of my own style and some reminds me of what young generations would adore. But, they all bring a smile to my face and a sense of jolly kindred spirits in whoever is lucky enough to receive one of these as a gift this year.

I hope you love them as much as I do and consider making one as a gift to give to someone you love or even to yourself. So, sit down and grab your favorite hook and decide which design will be your heart and soul in your next make.

O’Christmas Tree Skirt & Long John Stocking Pattern Release

Christmas is such an exciting time of year, perhaps one of my favorite holidays. Every year I love trying to find the best tree and go a step up from the year before. I feel like you cannot beat a fresh Christmas tree like the ones found at https://mrgreentrees.com/ – the smell is just the best! Anyway, this year I am going to try something new and put a new tree skirt around the bottom! I am so excited to wrap up the O’Christmas Tree Skirt CAL and offer the pattern in full to everyone! This pattern is being released just in time for you to make one for your tree this year. But it isn’t the only pattern being released {make sure to check out the last part of the blog post for a fun coordinating pattern}.

O'Christmas Tree Skirt

The O’Christmas Tree Skirt is made in Knit Picks Brava worsted weight yarn, it features the mini bean stitch that shows a lovely texture throughout the body of the skirt only to transition with a fun bobble into the beautiful colorwork of cables. The eye appeal will go with most holiday decor, whether it be traditional, whimsical or truely classic. Just switch up your colors for a completely different look and enjoy seeing the pattern come together in full.

After designing the O’Christmas Tree Skirt I knew I had to design a fun and unique Christmas Stocking… so, it didn’t take long to come up with the Long John Christmas Stocking.

Seriously fun!!! Everyone will comment on how darling these are as they are strung by the fire. The Long John Christmas Stockings are made in the same worsted weight yarn and feature the same beautiful texture of the mini bean stitch.

Gift Card Holder Too!

Not only are these seriously cute, but the button flap, dubs as a gift card holder. This adds so much charm to these little britches.

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.
