A Christmas Tree Skirt

O Tannenbaum Skirt was inspired collectively by Naturally Spun’s yarn, a man’s tie, and a spruce tree. May it bring inspiration and joy to your holiday season!

Knit in tie-shaped sections, this project remains portable until the very end when the “ties” are seamed together. Skirt decorations are optional; the skirt may be decorated in any of the suggested methods or with any of your own creative ideas. The segments are also beautiful unadorned.

Spinners may choose to substitute their own hand-dyed and handspun yarn for the Naturally Spun yarn.
