Happy Holidays! 2019 has flown by in a flash and I’ve pulled out my mini tree that I got on clearance last year. The only thing missing was a tree skirt so I whipped up this crocheted mini tree skirt. Introducing the Fur Lovely Mini Tree Skirt Pattern. I used super bulky yarn to and my favorite Clover USA hook to make this very quick project.
The way I designed this pattern it’s easy to use the faux fur yarn as it’s added at the end of the pattern so there’s no increases using it. Also adding buttons is an option as the top of the skirt is designed to sit up on the base of the tree so you can see the lovely texture.
Special stitch includes bobbles for texture. A bobble in this pattern is yarn over, insert your hook, pull up a loop, yarn over, pull through just 2 loops, repeat 3 more times until you have 5 loops on your hook, yarn over and pull through all 5 loops on your hook.
Yards/Ounces: I used 9.0 oz/145 yards/256 g/133 m of super bulky yarn inTampa Spice Hometown USA by Lion Brand Yarn. 2.0 oz/52 yards/80 g/48 m of Go For Faux yarn by Lion Brand Yarn in Baked Alaska.
