|Traditional Tree Skirt with Faux Fur Yarn|
IThe tree skirt has a split, but it is hard to tell in this picture. I add several ties so it sits nice and flush and colour co-ordinate them with the bands which seems to make them blend in very nicely.
This is another un-documented one that I made with similar colours for my brother-in-laws family. They have two small children - the perfect age for Christmas magic - so this is an extra large version suited for a big Christmas Tree. Double wide bands of faux fur yarns make a nice edging.
In the body of the tree skirt I've used bands of popcorn stitch for texture and interest. You particularly pick up the texture when looking down at the tree skirt as you would when it's under the tree. Eats up a lot of wool - loads in the outer bands - but a very nice effect.
