Sustainable Alternative

The holiday season is upon us and almost everywhere people are excited to finally have people over again to share this special season with. Whether it is through beautiful Christmas decorations or homecooked meals and baked goods, we love to make people feel the holiday spirit when they enter our home.

I almost never buy decorations. I mean, thrift stores have great holiday decor options and a great way to practice sustainability. Which is why, for so so long, I loathed our basic felt tree skirt but could not find the heart to spend on a skirt I actually liked at Michael’s.

When we moved to our new house during summer we donated the old tree and skirt – thank goodness! and decided to start fresh this year. We got a great tree at Salvation Army for only $40 but I still could not find the perfect skirt. Thus, like any good maker would guess, I made one instead.

What is a tree skirt?

Faux Fur  Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt

A Christmas tree skirt is piece of fabric that covers the base of both artificial and real trees and where presents are placed.

Crochet Christmas tree skirts are a popular family heirloom piece and are always more appreciated that a store bought skirt and gives off a real vintage feel. You can almost be certain to find some really beautiful tree skirts on Pinterest that are crocheted almost instantly!

Skirts come in many different shapes, however the most common is circular skirts. Crochet christmas skirts have fun patterns like a granny tree skirt – ooooh the beloved granny 🙂 – or even done using special stitches to make a more complicated look. That is the magic of handmade, we can made it exactly how we want it to be.

All about the yarn

Faux Fur  Crochet Christmas Tree Skirt

This pattern uses Super Bulky (CYC 6) white yarn. I decided to use Lion Brand Yarn’s Go For Faux Yarn in Baked Alaska. This is such a fun specialty yarn that easily transforms this traditional design into a sophisticated statement piece to place Christmas presents. Plus, the texture almost looks like there is a hint of fluffy white snow under the tree – how gorgeous is that?!

Faux fur is such a fun yarn to work with because the fur texture hides the stitch details making the finished piece look store bought – expensive without breaking the bank! Win-win.

Cons?..

The only difficult thing about working with this yarn is locating your stitches so I strongly recommend counting each row. Nevertheless, this is a super quick project that is perfect if you are in a bit of a rush. It also makes a great addition for craft fairs since it works up quickly! This is surely a great pattern to add to your collection of crochet Christmas tree skirt patterns.

This Christmas tree skirt is a great pattern for beginner crocheters who want to try working with specialty yarn as it only involves simple stitches (double crochet and chain).

Materials needed:

  1. Super Bulky Yarn – I used Go For Faux in Baked Alaska or any color you prefer. Lion brand Yarn offers a variety of different colors of yarn in Go For Faux.
  2. 20mm crochet hook – these are my favorite inexpensive set of hooks. I actually really like the quality and love how they have a great variety of sizes. This set really comes in handy whenever I have a project that calls for a hook size that I do not normally use, such as in this pattern.

Abbreviations:

ch – chain

dc – double crochet

St/s – stitch/es

Notes:

  1. This pattern is made using US terms.
  2. The pattern is written in rows, turn after each row. You are NOT working in a round, by working in rows we create a slit down one side so we can easily slip the tree skirt under the tree.

*at this point I no longer had enough yarn to complete a whole new row but I was satisfied with the diameter. You can continue widening the diameter following the pattern increases until you reach your desired diameter.

*since this yarn is thick and easily blends into itself, I continued down the outer edge using single crochet stitches until I ran out of yarn and simply tucked in the end after the last st.

Row 13: ch 2, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, 2 dc. *dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, dc, 2 dc. Repeat from * until the end of the row. (140 sts)
