It’s been so hard to keep Emory’s Christmas Tree Skirt to myself. Premier Yarns is amazing for sponsoring our Christmas Present CAL and our first project was such a pleasure to design and crochet. The ELKies asked for a Christmas tree skirt last year, but I ran out of time…..all things in due time right? Let’s get things started!
I really think you’re gonna love the yarn for a few reasons:
- It’s a great cotton yarn, so it will last for a long time.
- The yarn is perfect for Christmas because of the sparkly twinkle you can see.
- It’s on SALE! (see below)
- You’ll also get a discount code (see below)
When I told Premier Yarns that I wanted to design a Christmas Tree Skirt, they suggested the Premier Home Cotton Big Glitz. I already knew that I wanted to design the skirt using cotton, but when I received the “samples” to play with……it was perfect.
Get the PDF pattern on Etsy HERE.
There are 12 panels individually made with this skirt. The pattern is easy, and I’m going to ensure you will be successful. I’ll have a well written pattern, stitch diagrams and probably a video tutorial for you too!! You will enjoy this project and create an heirloom for yourself or someone special.
If you aren’t a member of the ELK Studio Crocheter’s FB group…whatcha waiting on? We have all skill levels in there, so you can get your questions answered by a very supportive group of people! We actually call ourselves the ELKies!
