Faux Fur Tree Skirt

Faux Fur Tree Skirt

Crochet your own faux fur tree skirt!

Have you ever made a questionable purchase while under the influence?? Lol I went out for a date with my fiance and got an email about a sale on faux fur yarn. I’ll be honest with you guys… I had a few drinks … Maybe my slight buzz inspired me or just the lack of inhibition, but I ended up buying 8 balls of Go For Faux by Lion Brand with vague thoughts of a tree skirt in my mind!

Either way, I got a surprise box of yarn in the mail and the ghost of an idea. That’s how the Faux Fur Tree Skirt was born! Haha

Beginner pattern or no??

The thing about fur yarn is that it is REALLY difficult to see your stitches. It’s actually impossible. The structure of this pattern is for an intermediate beginner who understands increasing. Combined with the difficulty of not being able to see stitches, this pattern more of an intermediate or advanced crocheter project. The good news is that you don’t have to use fur yarn if you’re just getting started!

If you are a beginner, check out my post about Christmas gift ideas so you can inspire your loved ones!

Any super bulky, size 6, yarn will work for this project. You can also incorporate rows of fur with other non-fur yarn to make the project easier to navigate. Enough backstory.. Let’s get into the pattern details!

Looks perfect under string lights!

What do you need?

Fit any tree size by adjusting the pattern easily. All you have to do is stop early if your tree is smaller or continue following the instructions after the number of rows ends. My intent is to fit the tree I have which is about 7 feet tall. I used 8 skeins or about 512 yards. I could have easily kept going because I like big tree skirts!

Yarn: 520 yards of any size 6 yarn or click the picture below to shop for the yarn I used

Crochet Hook: 11.50mm/P

Yarn needle and Scissors

You could also grab some big wooden buttons to some sort of toggle to close the tree skirt around the tree!

Pattern

Ch 30

One: SC in second ch from hook and in each st across (29 sts) •

Two: Ch 3 and turn (counts as a stitch here and throughout), dc in first stitch immediately next to ch 3, *dc in next 3 sts, (dc, ch, dc) in next stitch*, repeat from * to * 5 times, dc in next 3 sts, 2 dc in last st (37 dc ‘remember the ch 3 counts” and 6 chains) •

Three: Ch 3 and turn, dc in first stitch, *dc in next 5 sts, (dc, ch, dc) in ch 1 space from previous round*, repeat from * to * 5 times, dc in next 5 sts, 2 dc in last st which will be the top of the ch 3 from the last round (51 dc and 6 ch)

Note:

Each row from here until the end repeats with additional stitches. There should be an extra 2 stitches between the (dc, ch, dc) in each row until you get to the desired width. (Or an additional 14 stitches in each row.) Keep following along to make the same one I did!

Four: Ch 3 and turn, dc in first st, *dc in next 7 sts, (dc, ch, dc) in ch 1 space*, repeat from * to * 5 times, dc in next 7 sts, 2 dc in last st (65 dc and 6 ch)

Maybe stop here for a small tree!

Sixteen: Ch 3 and turn, dc in first st, *dc in next 31 sts, (dc, ch, dc) in ch 1 space*, repeat from * to * 5 times, dc in next 31 sts, 2 dc in last st (233 dc and 6 ch)

Alternate fur with other yarns!

Seventeen: Ch 3 and turn, dc in first st, *dc in next 33 sts, (dc, ch, dc) in ch 1 space*, repeat from * to * 5 times, dc in next 33 sts, 2 dc in last st (247 dc and 6 ch)

This is where I  stopped for my 7 foot tree. My finished skirt measures 20 inches from the center to one outside point and about 40 inches all the way across. If your tree is bigger, you’ll want to keep adding rows until it reaches the desired width.

Bind off and weave in the ends!

You’ve now got your very own Faux Fur Tree Skirt!
