Sparkle and Glow Christmas Tree Skirt
If you're like me, you get really sick of looking at that store bought felt Christmas tree skirt you bought years ago, and you long to have a hand knitted one instead...BUT, the thought of knitting such a large piece has kept you from taking on the project.
This tree skirt is perfect for you! It is quick, easy, and not as ambitious as it looks!
By holding a worsted weight yarn and a sequin-lace together, you end up with a bulky yet beautiful result. The ruffles and ridges give it some texture and interest! Cast-on today and have it done by Christmas, and you'll have a family heirloom that will last for generations.
This tree skirt is worked in three sections: 1 four-panel section, and 2 two-panel sections. It is then sewn together and buttons (or jingle bells) are added as a closure. It can be knit in one continuous piece by casting on all eight sections at once. If you decide to do this, please be aware that you will end up with almost 500 stitches on your needles by the end. Yo
