I finished it on Boxing day (Wednesday) evening apart from a few final ends to weave in. I've just finished doing those and now here it is :-D

I am so, so, soooo pleased with it. Definitely a labour of love to use all those colours. I wanted to make sure the ends were really secure so I sewed each one individually rather than just crocheting over them. This skirt is going to LAST lol

I love how cosy it makes the Christmas tree look, like it's cuddled up under a blanket

Ravelry link here. Very simple pattern, just time consuming to make!

  1. I love this!! After seeing yours part-way done, I was already scheming for my mom, who cannot find a tree skirt she likes-- this might be perfect for her. Yours is lovely, especially with all the bright colors!

  2. Thank you :-) The squares are fairly mindless to do as long as you keep an eye on which side is which as they are wedge shaped. My only advice would be to start it early! Took me a month to finish it because I got so bored of sewing in all the ends lol

    1. The crochet itself is fairly quick, it's all the ends to sew that takes so long lol.
