I am so excited to finally be able to share this crochet tree skirt pattern with you! It has been such a labor of love, with months of stitching and then many more hours of writing up the pattern. I have also included some diagrams and stitch charts to help make the pattern as easy as possible to follow. And hopefully I shared it early enough for you to have enough time to work it up by Christmas … Yay! I can’t wait to see all the different variations you all come up with!

Finished tree skirt measures approximately 55 in. × 55 in.

 

Special Stitch: 2 double crochet cluster (2dc-cl) – *Yarn over, insert hook in stitch, draw up a loop, yarn over and pull through 2 loops on the hook (2 loops on hook), in same stitch rep from *once more (3 loops on hook), yarn over and pull loop through all 3 loops on hook.

*Note: As written the pattern uses 6 hexagons to make a perfect flat hexagon skirt that can go around the base of a tree stand and so that the edges will meet. If you want it to slightly cone in the center to go up the stand you can use 5 hexagons instead.

Joining

Lay out hexagons to form a ring as shown in the diagram below. We are going to be crocheting the hexagons together using a slip stitch along the edges indicated by the red lines. Be sure to leave one part open so you can fit it around your tree stand.

With right sides facing and using CB, slip stitch adjoining hexagons together through back loops only from corner stitch to next corner stitch, along one edge of facing hexagons. Repeat for each hexagon leaving beginning and ending hexagons unjoined.

    What a great and simply idea. I’ll certainly crochet this Crochet Tree Skirt instead of using as usual some white tableclothes 🙂
    Thank you for sharing is.

    Hi !! This is a great pattern.. I’m stitching mine together now… I’ve made 6 but it seems quite big using 6. And the picture you’ve posted seems to have only 5. Does your picture indeed have only 5 hexagons?

    • Kara December 7, 2016 at 10:25 am #

      Hi Colleen 🙂 So glad you like it!! Making 6 makes this a perfect flat hexagon that can go around a tree stand so that the edges meet. If you want it to slightly cone in the center to go up the stand, you can use 5. Hope that helps!
