Carousel Mini Christmas Tree Skirt
designed by Kim Guzman © Dec. 2016
Technique: Regular Crochet
This tree skirt (and all the ornaments in the set) are for a small two-foot tabletop tree. The skirt measures only 12″ across.
- Nazli Gelin Garden Metallic Size 10 Thread (shown in mint and magenta)
- Size 7 thread hook
Row 1: With A, ch 66, sk first ch, *sc in next ch, ch 3, sk 3 ch, rep from * to last ch, sc in last ch, turn: 16 ch-3 sps.
Row 2: Ch 1, sc in first sc, *ch 3, sk ch-3 sp, sc in next sc, rep from * to last ch-3 sp, turn, leaving rem sts unworked: 15 ch-3 sps.
Row 3: Ch 1, sc in first ch-3 sp, ch 3, sk sc and next ch-3 sp, *sc in next sc, ch 3, sk ch-3 sp, rep from * to last sc, sc in last sc, turn: 14 ch-3 sps.
Rows 4-15: Rep rows 2-3. On final row, 2 ch-3 sps.
Row 16: Ch 1, sc in first sc, ch 3, sk ch-3 sp, sc in next sc, turn, leaving rem sts unworked: 1 ch-3 sp.
Row 17: Ch 1, sc in ch-3 sp, sc in last sc, turn.
Note: The next row will close up all the short rows previously worked. You will work all the way back to the beginning, stepping down like stair steps.
Row 18:: Ch 1, sc in first sc, *ch 3, sk sc, sc in side of next sc, ch 3, sc in ch-3 sp, rep from * to last 2 sc before last ch-3 sp, ch 3, sk sc, sc in side of next sc, ch 3, sk ch-3 sp, sc in last sc, change to B on last sc, turn: 16 ch-3 sps.
Note: When changing colors, drop the old color and begin working with the new color without cutting off. Cutting off is unnecessary until the Wedges are complete.
Row 19: Now with B, ch 1, sc in first sc, *ch 3, sk ch-3 sp, sc in next sc, rep from * across, turn: 16 ch-3 sps.
Rows 20-36: Rep rows 2-18, changing to A on last sc.
Repeat Wedges until desired number has been created and fasten off. 20 Wedges will make a flat disc. If you want it to sit up higher and drape down, you won’t need as many Wedges.
Weave in ends securely.
Many of you have written to me to ask how you can help support CrochetKim. A Patreon account was suggested but I thought it would be better to provide ad-free PDFs of my patterns so you would get something in return. I'm steadily working on adding PDFs to all my patterns and I've also made this compilation available at a discounted price. Thank you to all of you for your overwhelming support and kindness these many years. Enjoy!
