How to Crochet Christmas Tree Skirts

Save

If you know the basics of how to crochet, Christmas tree skirts you make for friends and family serve as welcome homemade holiday gifts. Crochet the skirts in a choice of colors, including red, green, white or blue to coordinate with the recipient's decor. No fancy, complicated stitching is required for these skirts, so they are suitable for someone new to the art of crochet.

Things You'll Need

  • Row 2: Single crochet in each stitch across. Chain 1 at the end of this and every other row.
