Shimmer Christmas Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

This is the 1st of many Blogs on
 How to have a 
Very Yarny Christmas 2015.
This is the beginning of a new Series.
 I will be posting Holiday blogs, 
designs and crafts
that have Yarn as the main theme.
As we do, we will be decorating
 this tree together.
My Christmas Tree looks a
 little lonely and empty right now.
I am very excited about how 
we will decorate it
 and do some fun 
Christmas Crafts together.

First on the decorating list is a 
Christmas Tree Skirt.
 If you can not find this yarn,
 you can use Red Heart Christmas yarn, 
or I love this yarn Sparkle.
Any Worsted Weight (4) Yarn will work.
