Homespun Christmas Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Homespun Christmas Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern
 I was going to release this design this last year, but time
 got away from me. So here it is a year later..and I love it!
It is a really easy pattern that stitches up fast.
It lays beautifully and sort of reminds me of one of
my old Christmas Sweaters!
I wanted a Rocky Mountain Colorado Rustic Feel.
It hasn't started snowing yet, so I put it around one
 of the trees in the side of yarn.
I chose this tree for the photo, for it's rustic pine tree look
 and imperfections. Those scars are from the Bucks 
rubbing their antlers on the it.

The yarn I used is Holiday Homespun, by Lionbrand Yarn.
 1 skein each of Red, Green and White.
 It is  lovely soft and bumpy yarn,with gold thread
 running through it.
It is a Bulky (5) yarn, so if you do not have this yarn, 
or want to use a different yarn, any Bulky (5) would
 probably work great.

As you can see from this picture, it is basically stitched in a pentagon shape, and has a fun and easy chain loop trim.
You do not have to use the same striping effect I used.
Change it up and see what Happens!
