Christmas Cheer Tree Skirt Crochet Pattern
The Christmas Cheer Tree Skirt is a quick and easy holiday project! It uses only 1 stitch and creates a beautiful hexagon shaped tree skirt! It’s simple yet beautiful!
Happy Friday Friends! Can you believe it’s almost December? I know I can’t! Last weekend we put up our Christmas Tree and I realized we were in need of a tree skirt! I had some Christmas-y yarn I’ve been wanting to use, so I quickly whipped up this Christmas Cheer Tree Skirt!
This pattern is very simple. It uses one stitch and a easy to remember repeat. If you’re like me and wanting something last minute or just want a quick Christmas project, this is it! It’s one of those makes that you barely need to pay attention to and can actually pay attention to your favorite show on TV while you’re stitching, it’s that easy!

You have two options for yarn weight for this pattern. You can either use 2 strands of medium (4) weight held together OR a single strand of bulky (5) weight yarn.
I used 2 strands of Circulo Natural Cotton Sparkle held together. One strand is the Christmas Edition and is a red, green, gold sparkle mix. The other is apart of their sparkle edition and is a white and gold sparkle mix. Technically this yarn is classified as a ‘light worsted’ but I find it to be closer to a true medium weight. You can substitute with any medium (4) or bulky (5) weight yarn though! I used cotton yarn, but you can use any fiber as well! I had more white yarn than the red/green so once I ran out of the red/green, I used the last bit of white for the final rows. This created a nice boarder around my tree skirt! Feel free to use as many colors you’d like!
The Christmas Cheer Tree Skirt works up so fast thanks to a large crochet hook! We’ll be using a 12mm hook, which will create more of a lace-y fabric. If you don’t have a 12mm crochet hook there’s a few great options on Amazon for them! I have this cute, sparkly hook set. It comes with 5 large crochet hooks, yarn needles, and stitch markers! If you’re looking for just a single hook, Clover Amour is a favorite of mine!
When you’re done making your Christmas Cheer Tree Skirt, try blocking it! Blocking your tree skirt will help relax the stitches, showing more definition, as well as help tidy up the hexagon shape. In addition, blocking can help add a few extra inches in size. To block: pin your tree skirt down to blocking mats or exercise mats
I worked 22 rows to get a tree skirt that measures 22″ from the center of the skirt to the outside edge and 47″ from edge to edge. You can work as many rows as you’d like thought to get your desired size!
7 STs x 4 Rows = 4″ x 4″ in HDC
Adjust hook size up or down to reach gauge.
● This pattern is worked in rows and creates a hexagon shaped tree skirt.
● Beginning chains do not count as stitches. At the end of the row, CH 1 and turn, and work the first stitch into the last stitch from the previous row. The CH 1 spaces worked within the row DO count toward the final stitch count. Each Row will increase by 12 stitches (6 HDC STS & 6 CH 1 spaces).
● The instructions given between [brackets] are all to be worked in the CH 1 space.
● The number in parenthesis at the end of the row represents the total stitch count at the end of that row.
● Stitches between *asterisks* are to be repeated until the end of the row.
● The pattern uses the same repeat from Row 2 on. Full row instructions are given up to row 6 then the pattern will continue with just the repeat instructions. Feel free to work as many rows as you’d like to get your desired size.
● 2 Strands of Medium (4) Weight Yarn held together (1,300 total yards) OR 1 strand of Bulky (5) Weight Yarn (650 yards).
(I used 2 strands of Circulo Yarn Natural Cotton Sparkle held together. Yardage listed above is for a tree skirt that measures approx. 47” in diameter)

Tie off yarn and weave in ends. Feel free to block your tree skirt to tidy up the shape and stitches, this can also help add a few extra inches to the size. If you’d like you can also try adding buttons, string, or ribbon to the open side of the tree skirt for a prettier presentation!
